    I'm currently using a 24" Samsung 245B as my main monitor (very happy with it) and a smaller 19" BenQ that I connect to the test-rig or PCs I set up for customers.
    Sometimes, I hook up both screens to my PC which can be very useful.

    Lets see, since my last post on here, I've actually gotten a 22" Envision LCD used, but it works just as it should! At 1680x1050 at 60Hz. Had it for three months now actually. (just got a picture of it! )

    Ya, no going back to smaller resolution!

    Currently I'm running 3 monitors off one system because I've run out of disk space for the 4th screen. But I have 5 monitors here now, from 17" to 24"......considering getting a 30" next.

    My primary runs 22's and 24" LCD, but I do still use CRT when testing LCD monitor for input lag tests. Too bad no large screen/high rez CRTs.......they're butter smooth for gaming.

    Samsung 2493 HM after using a 19" CRT since 2000.

    No way would I wish to go back.

    This thread is a couple years old. LOL

    LCD 22 inch all the way here. Once you go LCD you will never go back to CRT. My Acer 22 inch LCD is 5ms response time 1680x1050 (same as 1600x1200 CRT res) resolution with 16:10 ratio. I can pick it up with one hand and sling it under my arm!

    RE: "You old school CRT guys really are missing alot by sticking to CRT's..."

    Not factual at all - the CRT format blows the doors off most LCD, LED, OELD & etc screens,
    for TVs, monitors & projectors. A good plasma is closest to the CRT in visual display capabilities.

    However, the flatscreens are indeed getting there, especially in the last year or so.
    Particularily when speaking of more costly "business", "graphics" or "medical" use LCDs or Runco .

    When flatscreens fix the black/white, color depth & blur issues, then you will be right.

    Unfortunately, CRT has become an obsolete & dead science, coupled with the HDMI/HDCP issue.
    Also, anyone lucky to still have a good working order WS CRT limited to the WS Sony or Lennovo has my absolute envy.

    I switched to a "business" use LCD for PC use years back, as I prefered WS gaming.

    I still miss my Pioneer Elite 53" RPG HDTV - sigh (it was one of the few models that the HDFury wouldn't work on)
