    Smile CRT or LCD, what do you use?

    Hi all, I am just curious upon what monitor you have?
    I have a IBM G97 19" CRT monitor running on 1280*1024 at 85Hz and its around 7 years old this year and I have no plans to replace it. Here is a picture of it sitting on my desk (obviously), the monitor is not damaged at the top, that is just what the camera did (for proof, I added a second image ).

    I use LCD.

    Currently a 17" LG Flatron L1717S

    For a week or two i had my computer running on our 42" plasma. Looked great

    The only thing i can moan about with the LCD monitor is its refresh rates. Its a 12ms but gosh, you'd never want to watch TV on it, especially tennis or something with a small moving ball :mad: its like when you set up a trail to follow your mouse.

    PS: why don't you make this a poll thats if you still can, i don't think my permissions are set up right.

    I was going to make it a poll but there isn't an option to do so (which I can see) unfortunately. Your monitor looks nice Ciro.

    i'm using a 17" CRT......................................

    i'm waiting for a small payout, then i'm going to move to the 22" Samsung 226BW as i now feel ready to give up all the benefits CRT have.

    I have a 19" LCD at 1280 x 1024, but I am looking to buy a cheap CRT because of the refresh rates. I want to try stereoscopic stuff but I only have a max rate of 75 Hz. Shame you can't OC screens...

    Or can you? I have to investigate.

    Refresh rates on LCD don't matter, I have my laptop LCD at 60Hz. Do you mean the response time?

    yeah 60 hz is the default standard for LCD's and you can tweak them to get around 72hz, but no higher really. 1

    00hz screens are meant to be on the cards sometime in the future, the technology is starting in LCD TV's first, though.

    Sorry, you misunderstood. I wanted to purchase a CRT screen because the higher refresh rates allowed for the use of shutterglasses. These are basically a pair of glasses that you wear the black out each lens (and therefore each eye) alternately many times a second. It is timed with the refresh rate of the screen. When the glasses black out the right eye, only the left eye can see the screen. At the same time, stereocscopic drivers make the screen show the image intended for the left eye. It then alternates like this plenty of time to show a different image to each eye. This gives depth perception and thus 3d gaming that you can sense the depth of. The thing is, you need a refresh rate ideally of 85 Hz or above. 75 Hz, for my monitor, will work, but it can cause something akin to motion sickness when played for long periods of time. And considering CRT monitors are getting cheaper, I thought it might be nice to have a sort of auxiliary display for 3d gaming.

    Im gonna have to say LCD all the way my samsung syncmaster 226bw is plenty good enough to me although one pixel loves to play up randomly.
    LCD are so much slimmer and i have quite a small bedroom so it saves alot of space and means i can move it up against which i cant do with a CRT.

    If i had a CRT the dam thing would be literally centimeters from my eyes - i don't have much desk space so LCD is my only option. I also think it looks very modern and professional to have a slim monitor.

    I use a Samsung SyncMaster 940BW 19" Widescreen and it is really good
    It has 1440x900 which is great for watching DVDs.

    Mine runs at 75hz.
