mmm i think current-gen LCDs are good but i hate the ones (esp. laptops) that have that shiny coating on them to improve contrast. It reduces the viewing angle too much and the ones that dont have it look washed out. IMHO none of my LCDs have as good a colour as my CRT

I tried out a few LCDs 2 years ago, when response times were still in the 15+ ns range and had backlighting issues. I just didn't like them for gaming so I returned them. Ended up sticking with the CRT. The current lines have much quicker response times (6-8 ns), but I haven't bothered to try them out again. I'm guessing they are much better now.

they are there nice and repsonsive now, the only thing is the colours, either you get washed out colour or the stupid shiny coating

I have a 15.4" on my mac book pro and a 19" that i extend into while im at home. It has one of the shiny coatings on it which i actually quite like however i woud never get it on a laptop monitor as it would scratch to easily.

Im currently working on a 19" widescreen that cost about $250 AUD which is not bad and seems good enough for gaming for me however my one at home which cost nearly double that would be better for gaming. Cheapest is not always best.

You can definatly see the difference in adjustability when you spend a little bit more on your monitor as well. The one i have at the moment you can not adjust at all. Where is my one at home has a 360 degree rotation on the base a 360 degree rotation on the back for tilting back and forth and an arm that gives you a very generous height adjustment. enough to stand the montior up on its short ends without scraping the sites on your desk or stand. Although why you would ever want to do such a thing short of a 2 19" 1 30" setup is beyond me.

>What size is your computer monitor?
A multi-selection poll would probably have been more appropriate. Regardless, I put down my largest screen (24 inches).

>god wut the hell ................. how many computers you got?????
Pffft, you obviously haven't met a computer geek before. I'll admit that even my collection of computer monitors is rather skimpy.

12" LCD (Toshiba Satellite laptop)
13" LCD (MacBook)
15" CRT (old no-name PC)
15" CRT (not SVGA! It's from an old 386 clunker)
17" CRT (another old no-name PC)
19" CRT (AMD Athlon rig)
20" LCD (iMac screen)
24" LCD (Dell flatscreen that Dani gave me)

i have so many 17" CRT monitors its not funny and it costs like $20 each to throw them out. I think i have 15 about at the moment

0

It costs £50 (~$100) to throw out 1 desktop base unit here so right now i have a stack of like 8 x486es lol

like all monitors, mine are too small. Whatever the actual size in inches, that's the only description that matters :)

I never use anything above 1280x1024 or else it hirts my eyes. For some games i use 1024x768 for speed reasons

larger screens can handle higher resolutions.
And some people seem to be able to handle them even on smaller screens...
Got a friend who uses 1600x1200 and higher on 17" TFT screens.
He recently bought a 23" screen to go even higher, to 2560 wide...
