    Hello:
    The current older model of LCD no longer working good that I found after switching to good CRT from current LCD. On current LCD, ..... '1280 x 1024' popping up in the middle of the screen and the screen going out or the worst, .... shut-down the PC automatically due to the LCD I've been using for years.

    Strangely, the CRT is better than the current LCD that I found after terrible incident on which almost destroying the PC when hooked up with defective CRT, smoking started coming from up the back of the defective CRT for a few second.

    What model or any good quality LCD should I look for, .... comparable to good quality CRT?:confused:

    Thanks for any help in advance.

    I have never ever heard of any type of monitor "destroying" a computer. Not possible at all. Now resolutions will change with different sized screens, but that can be changed in the display properties. Anyways I myself like Viewsonic or Samsung for LCD/LED monitors. I've had my viewsonic 22 inch LCD for 7 years this Christmas and it still works flawlessly.

    I have 2 viewsonics and 1 hannsG monitor here; all work fine. The only comment I could make regarding the viewsonic is that the stand for the monitor is somewhat flimsy; the hannsG has a better mount/stand.

    Just to let you know - my old Acer was 22" wide, this one is only 27", so 2 1/2 extra inches makes little difference.

    I can also split to 4 separate screens - no second monitor needed and the built-in speakers are better than the desktop speakers that I had - less desktop clutter.

    The resolution of 2560 X 1080 really makes a big difference.

    All in all, a great monitor.(y)(y)
