KDS Visual Sensations 22" at 1600x1200 85hz

Until they can make a LCD monitor that can support the resolution I want (1600x1200 or better), pixel response time I want (<10ms) at a price I want (<$300), I'll stick with the good old CRT.

Oh yeah, I also have an old NEC (Circa 1987) 22" CRT that does 800x600, but the thing is a MONSTER. The screen bulge is incredible since they didn't make flat screens back then, it weighs a TON and is actually deeper than it is wide. It's about 20" wide but it's 25" deep, lol. It still works perfectly, and I can't bring myself to get rid of it, even though it weighs more than my 36" zenith TV.

damn that sounds like a beast. I am currently looking at a ViewSonic 21" LCD monitor. It has everything science wants except for the price. I think its around 1200 or 1300. Its expensive, but if you spend as much time on a comp as i do its worth it. I get really bad migrane head achs because i spend too much time on a crt.

poly, and anyone else who's interested...

a good friend of mine who works at a stock photography company turned me onto this...

every 1/2 hour to an hour spend five minutes looking at stuff that's really far away and bringing it into focus with your eyes...

really mitigates the whole "damn, working on a computer really fscks my whole head up" factor...

check it out... give it a shot... really worth while, in the long-term, too, so you can read yer grandkids books n'at....

peace.

I don't get headaches looking at the monitor, and have never had problems, but I might add that when I'm NOT looking at a monitor, I pay really close attention to the details of my surroundings. For instance, if I'm in line to get into a restaurant, I will notice that the bench out front has 3 back rungs, and one of them is cracked. I will notice that the top hinge on the left front door is rusted more than the others, etc. That's just my nature. Visually, I focus on the minutae.

Hyundai ImageQuest 19'' CRT, which i got form just £120!

LCD's are just to expensive at the moment, you can get a 3" larger CRT for the same money or less, theres no ccompetition though now that response times are about equal if you've got the money its a good investment.......

What's the response time on those? I'm a gamer at heart, and if they won't refresh without ghosting, I don't want them :)
