That's one con of LCDs, they don't have that balance.
But monitors are very much a preference thing. Every single technology has its downsides, be it LCD and its subcategories, be it CRT (mostly aperture grille).
The main cons of CRTs are the small size, and lower resolution than the highest res LCDs and not perfectly sharp text, which makes them a bit more awkward for desktop usage. Size, I don't consider a factor.
This is why, it would actually be ideal to have 30" + high end CRT, like I do. Other for desktop and slow games, other for fast stuff. That being said, I keep the F520 turned off because I don't really game anymore, but would not like to wear it out if I don't really use it. Shall be activated once I need it.
