The reaction time of 16ms is exceptional for an LCD...and ghosting is definitely not an issue...

The NEC has been easier on my eyes...I dont have to angle it any particular way to get full color (now, a laptop LCD, thats different)

The NEC's have a diffuser..sort of screen protection. Well...it looks 10x's better than any CRT I've owned, and I know for a fact that Viewsonic is a great monitor. (not the best, but great)

So yeah, just my
You must also consider price to performance ratio. But if you were to take a top of the line CRT to a top of the line LCD, there is no comparison. CRT wins picture quality hands down. If you ever sold TVs youd know what Im talking about. And the reason is, is that when I sold TVs it would get very mundane to look at all the pictures to the point where it would have to be super sharp and brilliant for it to stand out. The absolute best high def picture Ive seen is on a widescreen tube from sony. Thats considering LCD and Plasma. LCDs are the worst sellers (up until recently because projection LCDs make them cheaper but are not as bright and sharp) cause of there poor performance in comparison to their price.

Yes, yes, yes ... my next point of argument was going to be televisions. I currently have a 42" Samsung plasma (Only bec of the "bling/cool" factor.) But If I truly wanted all out crisp clarity, I would go for the 40" Sony XBR (Which I will purchase when I move to my condo.) I love the way Plasmas look when they are off, but nothing compares to a picture tube (CRT).

Ok ... sorry for sounding like a broken record. But so many people come to me these days telling me that a LCD is better than a CRT (whether it be for T.V's or PC monitors) So take it as you please ....
