Dell D1226H 19" CRT .vs. LG L204WT 20.1" LCD

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I currently have a Dell D1226H 19" CRT monitor (actually made by Sony). It's a great monitor for gaming and everything. Has had excellent reviews when it first came out. I am wondering how this would compare to an LG L204WT 20.1" LCD screen. Does an LCD such as this LG one give as good a picture as a good CRT? Or do CRT's still beat LCD's?

CRT used to beat most LCD, but now I'm not sure.

Any other opinions?

The CRT has a much higher contrast ratio so in terms of the depth of colors the CRT is superior.

GET THAT LCD. I've wanted it for a long time, but it's outside of my price range. I've seen the 19" in stores, it looks amazing, better than my CRT.
