It's 24", 2304x1440 @ 85Hz, 16:10, and well... the best CRT to date. When the time comes to get back into gaming, I'm not getting an IPS. I'm getting another FW900.

As a comp gamer who went from a CRT to a 60 hz LCD, to a 120 hz LCD, I can tell you that you'll despise a regular 60 hz screen, but still wont feel "right" with a 120 hz LCD.

That is what I wanted to confirm..
I might keep my CRT and get SSD or something instead...
might be a better choice now.

So no need to post if you think "can't tell the difference between 60Hz and 120Hz" or "IPS looks way better".
Since I still love my CRT (20" 66lbs beast. 1600x1200 100Hz, 1280x1024 150Hz) and never felt "right" with any LCD monitors I've tried until this day.
(due to responsiveness, contrast ratio, ghosting)
If you have played any FPS games competitively and used to looking at CRT with 100+ true fps with vivid color without any ghosting on top of the 1ms response time, it is hard to move on to anything else.
So do you think it's worth for me to get any 120Hz monitors out there now?
(AW2310, S23A950D, Asus VG236H, Acer GD245HQ, BEN Q XL2410T, etc..)
Or wait for more better line of 120Hz comes out?
Or just stick with CRT forever until LCD surpasses all of the CRT specs?
I basically want something that's as close to CRT as possible. I even prefer glossy finish.
I'd really buy 24"+ widescreen CRT if there was one even with 100lbs....
my 120hertz lcd feels nice and smooth like crts, but its still a little different. The image quality and everything are also different. Just something to keep in mind. I won't switch back to crt anytime soon.

I take your "different" meaning inferior to CRT.
Then there is more reason I should keep my CRT I guess...

600 hz plasma FTW.

Yes, I realize a big plasma TV actually kinda sucks as a computer monitor, but when you are over 40 with declining vision, having really crisp texture resolution becomes less important than having things big enough to actually see.

LED IS LCD. The only difference is the backlighting.

When most people say LCD display, they mean a CCFL back-lit LCD display. Most consumer LED displays are simply LCD panels with LED backlighting. Reduces heat and power consumption due to the nature of light emitting diodes and can in some cases provide a slightly better measured contrast ratio. In truth, it looks slightly different, but is very similar on paper to a regular CCFL back-lit LCD.

Your not manipulating the backlight to render images.

In some larger HDTVs that have full arrays of LEDs behind the LCD display, there is local dimming which is dimming out parts of the screen that are showing the color black to make it appear deeper and dynamically increase the contrast. Unfortunately, it can also cause blooming so some TV purists keep the feature turned off.
Thank you for clearing that up.

This really had me going down the wrong path.

Benq is a pretty good monitor, i am very happy with mine. Light bleeding warries from model to model. Its really more like being unlucky and getting the one with dead pixel, same goes for bleeding. Mine is near perfect, i got 1 dead pixel which is only noticable against black background. Plus you get a 3D capability. It is a bit pricey, but considering it is alot cheaper and better than alienware its not a bad deal. And i got mine for 200 quid which is 80 quid cheaper than any online stores in uk

I am coming from 17' Iyama 413 Pro, which is nowhere close to my current benq.

@ OP: I bought an FW900 from Manyak because I was unhappy with 120hz LCDs. A month later I bought another one from a local off of craigslist. I've bought and returned a HP zr24w and the 120hz Viewsonic. They both are terrible next to an FW900.

Also NY is the east cost capital of FW900's on craiglist so shame on you for not owning one.

It was still expensive and I still love it till this day.
