I've had a NEC FP2141SB monitor for several years (22 inch CRT monitor - 20 inch viewable area). I haven't seen an LCD monitor that will match it's color, speed, brightness, resolution, or refresh speed for any reasonable price since I bought this monitor. I don't understand the love affairs folks are having with LCD monitors.
I do understand that my monitor eats more desk space (not a concern with me), and is more power hungry than an LCD monitor, but I think the extra power used by my monitor is worth it. How many LCD monitors (at any kind of a reasonable price) will run at 2048 x 1536 at 50 to 86 Hz (I usually run 1600 x 1200 at 100 Hz).
I believe that someday LCD monitors may work as well (if not better) than my current CRT monitor, but until that time, I'm keeping my CRT monitor.
