Exactly, a friend of mine swears by CRT's and I know exactly why he does. These 3D monitors are for 3D only in my eyes, and it makes no sense to buy one for the refresh rate when there are better, cheaper options on the market.
Not to mention that for desktop usage, those CRT monitors can do better. The average trinitron could do 2048x1536 @ 85hz at the tier of 21" trinitrons. You really would like a 1920x1080 over that? Nope.
