I just bought a 22" mitsubishi 2070SB. Im very happy with it, both the sharpness and colors are very good. It does up to 2048x1536 in 86hz but then things becomes quite tiny :)

The downside is ofcourse the size, its huge, and very heavy so if you buy a big crt make sure to get a thick table to support it :]

Hope this helps a bit

i just bought the same display (with the nec name printed on it) and can only recommend it as well. it can be found as refurbushed with warranty for about $200.00 (US) quite easilyo there is no need to break the bank on an LCD with dodgy color representation.

I'm assuming you are referring to the aperture grille lines? They are sort of annoying at first, but you get used to them after a while.

suppose you would like that too, it's a touchscreen TFT with 18,1", and there's another model with 15"

you get a pencil with it and you can paint directly on the TFT

Only thing, it's a bit expensive

but see yourself

btw hi@all

I'd always go with a 30" Apple HD Cinema Display http://cgtalk.com/images/smilies/thumbsup.gif ...or two ;)

>suppose you would like that too, it's a touchscreen TFT with 18,1"

is this something that can flip horizontally ? because i can still feel the pain in my shoulders from my CS classes back in the early 80s where we had pens to click on the screen...
