    I originally posted wondering what LCD screen to get, but now I'm swaying the other way toward CRT. I want a big screen, but I also want more than 1280x1024, and 1280x1024 on a 19" LCD might look too magnified.

    I think I'm going to go with a 22" CRT that I can get for about the same price as a 19" LCD like the Samsung 191T.

    So what 21" or 22" CRT do you guys recommend for a graphic designer that will run about $500-600? Cheaper than that is okay, too :)

    I'd like to run 1600x1200 at 80Hz if possible, which leads me to the Mitsu Diamondtron... is that a decent monitor?

    In your head.
    LCD, LCD, LCD- I have a 20inch Planar and it make my life so happy.

    For less expensive real-estate, try any Trinitron or true "flat" screen. The Trinitron, and its descendents supposedly have the least distortion, though the two thin lines that cross the screen annoy some people. Viewsonic is inexpensive and they break quickly. I would go with monitor that uses a Sony, but that’s from experience.

    I'd make sure that my desk was sturdy also.
