Thanks. More about : philips sony Teq March 2, 2003 1:07:31 AM From experience... Neither. Look in to NEC, KDS and Viewsonic... avoid the "shadow mask" picture tubes (Trinitron, Diamontron) and you'll be a whole lot happier. <b>(</b>It ain't better if it don't work.<b>)</b> vk2amv April 14, 2003 7:53:45 AM Trinitron and Diamondtron are Apature grill Tubes not shadow mask tubes.

I got the brand names right, at least. --->It ain't better if it don't work<--- Teq April 14, 2003 9:26:59 PM Yeah I know... For some reason I've been doing this a lot lately. --->It ain't better if it don't work<--- alltaken April 15, 2003 4:48:10 AM those two lines don't bother me i havn't even noticed them for the last month or so!!!!! the only thing is if you get the Philips (i have a philips 109P flatscreen crt) make damn sure that it has been adjusted professionally to your resolution and refresh rates. coz mine had a convergence problem, which was basicly fixed by 3 phonecalls, a replacement monitor and a professional adjustment. ha ha ha but philips payed for all of that!! becasue i had a 3 year warentee. i would just say to check it out before getting a box shiped to your door!! but since the adjustments i have been very happy with it running at 1600x1200 @ 85Hz Can't find your answer ?
