    i'd like to purchase a large crt (at least 19") to accompany my tibook

    please give suggestions/recommendations on a high quality crt that can get to very high resolutions and still maintains a decent refresh rate (at least 85hz @ 1600x1200) *and* costs around $500

    thanks for all your help! i really want to purchase the monitor this week :)

    Do you have a Costco store there? The one we have here has a 19 incher for 190 bucks. I'm not sure if it's any good though. They always seem to have it off

    Re: quality crt monitor

    Not sure about all those conditions... I'ver persoanlly bought 3 sony's over time... and am happy with them.

    They might end up being a bit more costly... but some people really prefer the trinitron tubes.

    Monitors

    Try the ViewSonic A90f 19in Monitor, or the LaCie 19in Electron Blue from Smalldog, i believe its like 449 dollars

    thanks arn... i'm now stuck between these two monitors...

    http://www.sonystyle.com/home/item....933&telesale=null&hidden=null&cps=null&type=s
    (i can get it for $545 - including shipping - from a dealer on pricewatch where i've ordered before with success)

    or

    http://www.sonystyle.com/home/item....831&telesale=null&hidden=null&cps=null&type=s
    ( i can get this one for $370 - including shipping - from a different dealer on pricewatch that i think i've ordered from)

    do you think the 21" will be worth the extra money? i don't know for sure whether i'll need anything above 1600x1200 or not but i'd like to leave the possibility open

    any input is greatly appreciated (also do you think i should just go direct from sony like arn said or order from pricewatch?)
