G90f viewsonic, very nice CRT. Unless this thing breaks I'm skipping LCDs till OLEDs come around. LCDs are crap, sure they look nice in presentation, but using one side by side with my CRT makes the difference just disturbing. Colors, response delay.... I can't take that for my gaming or photoshop work. Frankly with how so many people have X-Fi cards you'd think people would be just as picky with their visuals as they are with their sound. Guessing the glossy black of a new samsung lcd is just too irresistible... that plus you can't really find a CRT worth buying these days.

If you can find one, get the 24 inch Sony/HP widescreen CRT. Nothing has come close to that in image quality, not even close. I saw a 360 running on it, makes even the best lcd monitor or hdtv look like a turd. Seriously it was amazingly better. Not to mention flexible. Makes me wish I hadn't wasted $600 on a Samsung hdtv.

Widescreen Dell SP2208WFP 22". I'd love a better quality monitor (non-TN), but aside from viewing angle, this one is pretty nice. Good color gamut, no lag at all.

ViewSonic 19" CRT

1600x1200 @ 75 hz - this is the reason I bought it 4 years ago and the reason I still use it today =)

(well...also there's the fact I'm too poor to really afford anything else...)

Iiyama 19" CRT, I forget the model; goes up to 2048x1536@75Hz, I believe, but for normal use I stick to 1600x1200@85Hz... it's slightly blurry at the highest resolution so text gets hard to read.

I fear the day when it dies and I have to switch to a crappy LCD...

People underestimate LG, they make some incredible LCD's. I find their viewing angels much more appealing than Samsung.
