Resolution of both is the same (both 1680x1050), so the only gain is the larger screen. The Samsung has the faster response time (5ms v 8ms - both respectable; likely not noticable in daily use).

It's just the matter if you want to spend over $100CAD extra for just a larger screen... I'd get the Viewsonic; a proven brand that generaly makes great LCD's

Here is an alternative ACER 22" monitor with same specs as the Samsung, priced similarly as the 20" Viewsonic: http://www.ncix.com/products/index.p...nufacture=Acer Acer makes decent monitors as far I know, although not the same reputation as Viewsonic or Samsung

And finally, Viewsonic also has a 22" monitor, priced a little lower than the Samsung: http://www.ncix.com/products/index.p...ture=ViewSonic

All the 22" have the same resolution as the Viewsonic 20". The only advantage is the larger screen. If you're willing to pay for that (22" Viewsonic or Samsung) or take a possible quality hit (Acer - could be equally as good though), then go ahead.

There are some good LCD's but I'd personally stick with a CRT that has low dot pitch. Not only will you save some money, it should look better.

OK.... a 21" CRT costs around $369: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824002090
20" visable area
21" LCD costs around $474:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824001078
21" Visable area...
around $100 difference...
LCD is smaller, lighter, and some say it looks cooler...

If you look at same viewable area, you should compare 21" CTR and 20" LCD... LCDs actually turn out cheaper then, like this $309.99 Viewsonic (aologies to original poster for Newegg links): http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824116383.

Pros for LCD: Smaller footprint, widescreen, aestatics, good image quality (mine at least... LOL)
Cons for LCD: possible dead pixels, ghosting (only when slow reaction time)
Pros for CRT: No response time issues, arguably better for gaming (although modern LCDs perform just as good), can change resolution without taking image quality hit
Cons for CRT: Bulky, heavy, higher power consumption

So far only 21" CRT I find at a Canadian online vendor is this expensive Viewsonic:

EDIT: Here is a NEC, however, it also costs like $493.90 CAD (BEFORE tax and shipping):
http://www.1click2computers.com/prod...BK&from_dist=I

Personally, I'd get the 20" Viewsonic you've been looking at originally.

You can get some great gaming LCD's. I have a samsung 19" with an 8ms response and it's flawless. I have 0 dead pixels, and 0 ghosting. I would skip the CRT and get a fast response time(8ms or less), and high contrast/brightness LCD.

Agreed. CRTs are too expensive, in Canada at least.

Allen has first-hand experience with your original pick (viewsonic vx2025wm), and he seems to recommend it

This monitor is also my recommendation. The larger ones only add size, and not resolution.
