    I'm a graphic designer and I need to get a monitor for my G5. I want a monitor that is at least 19" so that I have more room to work with. A LCD is too pricey for me, especially anything over 17".

    I heard Lacie's ElectronBlue IV 19" is pretty good. Anybody have any suggestions or recommendations?

    I've got a Viewsonic 22" P225fb CRT that I'll sell you for $400 + shipping if you're interested. Check around - the best price for a new one is over $550 + shipping. I've had it less than a year and it currently sits next to my G5. I am going to upgrade to the 23" Cinema. Let me know...

    From the Viewsonic website:

And the big 20" viewable screen and ultra-high resolution guarantee you’ll fit just about everything on your desktop. Step up to ViewSonic’s legendary quality with the P225f and P225fB — the ultimate in CRT performance from ViewSonic.

    [EDIT] SOLD to another party

    i use to run two sony cpd-e500 21" monitors and they work well. These monitors are nice but no longer made. The newer version (e540 i believe) cost about $600 each.

    I am willing to sell you both of my monitors for $650 + shipping if you are interested.
