I'm looking for something larger than my standard 17"....although a 17" LCD is a possibilty...any suggestions on a 19" CRT that is as reliable as my 447xpro?

in regards to CRT 19" you cant go past the SAMSUNG MAGICBRIGHT or SYNCMASTER true flats.
i don't know what your model designations are over there but i'm sure you would have them in some form or another.

SONY also make some kick arse 19" CRT true flats ( be they quite expensive ) and alot of them are made by SAMSUNG anyway

cheers

if you can still get an nec fe991sb 19" crt (has a sony tube). I have a viewsonic p95f+ 19" crt as well (which was top rated when i bought it 3 months ago) and the nec blows it away. I had a computer store for years and I can tell you that samsung is cheap crap, even their best models still don't compare to the top brands: Sony, Viewsonic, NEC. Pick one of those CRT and you really can't go wrong. In an LCD read the reviews before buying, right now envision has a 17" LCD that goes for $320 Canadian that is rated very high (do a search). I don't know much about envision but apparently the model (the exact model escaped me) rocks. I would still go for a crt. My viewsonic cost me $300 and the NEC (when I bought it was $400 but that was over a year ago). CRT is far superior in all ways to LCD (except for how it looks on your desk and footprint space) not to mention you can get a top of the line 19" for just over $300 while in a LCD, $300 gets you low end to mid-range. Its all about space and esthetics for LCD while CRT is about quality and durability (you will get 5+ years out of a good crt with no degradation of quality)

yes it is a very subjective topic.

why does SAMSUNG make tubes for expensive model SONY's ?

DELL = cr&p but the 19" DELL i use i can't fault and ive had it side by side with a AUD $ 455 SONY.........go figure but hey the DELL is made by SONY.
i don't know what models you got there and their specs but VIEWSONIC as high qaulity ???
most welll know branded CRT's perform okay...........it is that some cost a dammn sight more.

do you really need all the features ? and that tiny little bit more performance is gonna cost you.

a good colour and refresh rate is all most will want for.

have you used the SAMSUNG magicbright ?
i have contact with a few that have got them on the basis of seeing them operational on friends rigs.
and i can't seem to see much wrong with them.
they have been going a while over here and all with good report.

i'm not just championing the one product , just using it as an example.

but hey this is only an account from my own personal experience, just like yours

trust me get a LCD, plazma are low in quality as they are not as pixelated.

LCD look crap on TV's thats why they have the reputation of not being good, but as they as very small on PC's (up to 24" is start to fade) it is very pixelated and you can get the best graphics with them! and they dont take up as much space!

LCD! I love my Packard bell 17"!

If you're going CRT then I suggest the Viewsonic E90F+(Ultrabright model) I have 2 and they are great for gaming KILLER picture quality and high resolutions
