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
