I need a great CRT within 200-400 bucks for graphic and print purposes. I am thinking of get one from viewsonic, any downside or positive on their CRTs line? Also I could use some recemmendations on excellent CRTs from different company.

I had a good experience with a used / off-lease IBM P260 21" CRT. It uses a Sony picture tube and has two inputs (with a switch on the front of the monitor) - one DVI-A and one VGA. I used to have my PowerBook connected on one input and my Power Mac on the other. The successor model to the P260 is the P275. I think you can't go wrong with either, and they're easily within your budget (unless you're talking about getting a brand new monitor).

I used to use a PS790 from Viewsonic, trinitron tube, excellent color, and was good for the 2+ years i was working at that job.

im using a G20f at home right now.

The monitor im using at work now is a Sony G520, this one's pretty good too.

Viewsonics are great monitors. I just replaced one with a Dell 2005fpw, otherwise I'd still be using it.

I am currently using a ViewSonic PT770 (I think that's it) that was manufactured in 1995 or 1997 (one of the two, I happened to look at that the other week and can't remember what it was exactly). Anyway, it is still functioning perfectly.

I'm using a Samsung 997DF, and it's a great monitor. I use it for my gaming computer. it's capable of 1600x1200 @ 76 Hz, which is very good for a monitor in its price range.

Good choices...Seem more ppl are highly on Samsung and Viewsonic in the forum. I think I'll buy one of their line-up.

Thanks for input!
