Definitely a sad, sad day when I saw your FW900s off of your desk . Your IPS is beautiful, and that like-new FW900 of yours that you have socked away will be worth a fortune come a few years time and at the same time priceless to you once they become even rarer than they are now.
You know what really sucks though? When I do end up moving and I pull that sucker out of the basement, I'm gonna regret having sold the others lol

I used an old NEC CRT when i played CS 1.6 heavy back in like 2002-2004 and I had to legit pull my desk a foot off the wall to make it fit and still have enough space for my keyboard. Never doing that again.
Just like you feel that 120Hz is worth more than the accurate colors, some people feel that a lag-free, ghosting-free, high-refresh CRT is worth more than the space it takes up.

-raises a hand-

So i have a good question, With a 120hz monitor wouldnt you only notice a -huge- difference in gaming when your game is running at 60fps+ as compared to a 60hz screen? I'm talking strictly in gaming here..

Sorry to hijack the thread, but i just have a similar question...

I'm probubly getting a Dell U2410 because I am a photographer as -well- as a gamer...Though either is likely better than this old OLD 2407 which i've had since 2006 or so....which im fairly certain isnt anywhere near as good as most more modern TN panels (its a good monitor, dont get me wrong, but technology moves on!)

Even the beefy new rig im building im pretty sure im looking at less than a 60fps average in most newer games because i prefer to sacrifice absolute performance for visuals...

Yes. But
1) LCDs don't always display a true 120Hz, because their response times can't keep up. It depends heavily on the specific scene being displayed.

2) Better colors can give you an advantage too. For example, one thing TNs tend to exhibit (due to the desire to be cheap) is what's called "black crushing" - instead of seeing detail in very dark areas, you just see everything black, or at best a muddy mess. With a good monitor and calibrator noone will ever be able to hide directly in front of you again!

IPS without a doubt.

Here at work I have a Samsung TN panel display and a Dell WFP2007 IPS display both connected to my workstation. Sometimes I like to go to interfacelift.com, pick an amazing photo and drag it from the TN to the IPS panel just to see how much more realistic the colors are on the IPS. It's head-and-shoulders above the TN display (and this Samsung is one of the better TN monitors).
At long last...

The only drawback is that they require periodic calibration if you want the picture to remain perfect (we're talking like, once a year or so), and professionals who know how to work on them are becoming harder and harder to find. So you'll have to learn how to do it yourself if you plan on keeping it for the long haul. Not that it's hard or anything, but you'll need to spend a bit of time reading up on how to do it the first time around.

But other than that, the only drawbacks are the obvious ones - the weight and size - which IMO are only a small price to pay for the quality you get.

I calibrated my FW900 last November. It was actually really easy to do, just took a bit of work to get the plastic case off around the tube.

Are they really that much better?
I have seen a 23" IPS next to a 24" LG (2.7ms/120hz,loaded specs etc) both displaying 300 in 1080P and it didn't look any better.
In fact, the LG had better blacks and a superior range of colors.

Motion blur, clarity,.etc. All the same. And I am a very picky customer.
Maybe the difference is more noticeable in games?
