Really? Samsung = poor quality? I have quite a few Samsung products and I've been pretty happy with all of them.

The Web puts all of the world's knowledge at our fingertips; unfortunately it's mixed up with all of the world's crap.

I like CRT's to. Ark, CRT's are more of the bang for the buck. A CRT that costs $200 can only be matched by like a LCD that is $600.. well not really but u get my point.

When I called Samsung crap, I meant in comparison to better quality monitors. also with regards to features, I never have given a damn about extras on a monitor. color, brightness and refresh rate are the most important things. .25 dpi and 1200x1600 max is standard on just about every crt out there of decent quality. Someone mentioned a dell with a sony tube. Absolutely common. My nec fe991sb has a sony tube as well and it is fantastic. Samsung quality has definitely improved the last five years as have other cheapo brands like lg. (I have an lg1710s 17" lcd on my building desk. It's average quality cheap price). When we talk about pixels, we are not talking about dpi on lcd's are we? Really who cares? What is important on an lcd is refresh rate (yes I know it works differently than a crt but for gaming it is a real issue) as well as how it handles blacks and grays, and of course distortion away from centre. CRT monitors are old school technology. I still have a 17" nec crt thats the size of a building that has a fantastic picture. It's a matter of taste. I like the look of LCD's on a desktop as much as the next guy but what matters most to me is picture quality and bang for the buck. If I can get a 19" crt with a picture superior to ANY LCD of equivalent price (lets mention screen area as well...) or even close and I have enough desk space to handle it, then it should be a no-brainer. Only women (like my wife) care what the monitor looks like sitting on a desk enough to influence their purchase. (Yikes that came out sexist but you have to meet my wife to understand!!!)
