If you're looking at the apple cinema monitor, I'd get one of the korean IPS monitors instead. Same panel, much cheaper, but higher risk of issues. I've got a stuck pixel on mine, but still absolutely love the thing. As far as CRT's go, I would die to get one of those fw-900's. They sound absolutely gorgeous. Honestly, you could get a TN 120hz panel easier. The input lag on the benq xl2420 or whatever is really low. Less than a frame.
I meant the old CRT Apple Studio Displays mate
Reason I'm not going to go for a 27" IPS is that there's no configuration where I can have two matching portrait monitors at the side with the same pixel density. I've heard good and bad about the Benq XL-2420 but again if it already means getting a separate monitor outside of my PLP set-up, I might as well get the fastest out the lot with a CRT... just hoping I can bag a bargain with one.
Another thing is there are more 120hz version catleaps being sold on the market. 120hz.net was selling the 120hz version of the catleap and I'm sure they'll have more in the future. I saw some of the 120hz version available on ebay too.
Now you're tempting me
But still, I'd really want to figure out a way to still do a PLP config with one.
Reason I want portraits at the side is for coding, vertical space is far more important to me than horizontal.
