I like my Samsung 19" "Syncmaster 912n" ... will never go back to CRT.
IMO ... more pros than cons
I think they're on sale at BBuys this week (today).
The newer version is the 930

I've been using the Viewsonic vx900 for a long while now. It's a great monitor. The only thing I don't like after a while of use is the monitor frame is silver/gray instead of black. It wasn't offered in black. After downloading the correct drivers on initial installation, the monitor has been a pleasure. I will never go back to a CRT.

I always preferred CRT's. Recently (3 months ago) because of a new work space I had to change to LCD. Samsung 930e. It has proved to be a great replacement for the CRT. The only thing I will say is a LCD does not work well if you try to use it in anything but its native resolution. For example if your vision impaired and need to use a low resolution of say 800 by 600 you will not be happy with the resulting display. Most LCD's I think use 1024 by 768.

I have my Samsung 912n dialed down to 1024 x 768 and it looks great .. if set up properly.

I did install the "ClearType Tuner PowerToy" from ....

And it helped make the "extra sharp" text easier to read.

I have had LCD, can't keep them. Minus the desk space saved I only LCD to surf the net.
Use only CRT right now, and my TV sometimes.

Depends what you use you're pc for.
If you're a gamer stick with CRT. If not TFT monitors are the way to go IMO. I use the Benq T903:

I love it.
