I am buying a 22" CRt, either the Viewsonic p225fb or the Mitsubishi Diamond Pro 2070SB-BK. Plain and simple, which is best and why?? Is there any better 22" CRT?

Thanks people. ROb

Can't say I know much (or anything) about high-end monitors but I noticed the 22" Iiyama Vision Master Pro 514 is claimed to do 2048 x 1536 at 85Hz refresh with 1600 x 1200 at 100 Hz recommended..

i couldn't choose which monitor to buy but i did some research on the internet

and so i bought the

"Mitsubishi Diamond Pro 2070SB" (they don't have the blackversion here in europe :(  )

and all i can say is that this monitor is awsome ok the best iyama monitor has higher refreshrate's but refreshrate's aint everything i saw reviews of the diamond pro 2070sb and it always came best

and the viewable screensize (full scan) of the mitsubishi is 406mm x 304mm which is a bit bigger than most monitors

image quality is perfect especialy with the sb-mode (superbright modes)

in a few week i'll have my new pc so than i can really see in new games on how it looks on this monitor best way always is to compare both next to each other but that option is pretty hard 2 do

the mitsubishi is pretty expensive i paid 878 euro's for it here so if money is no problem for you than buy this one other wise find a other one that is much cheaper

the only real downside of this monitor is the 2 very small lines uy seen on the screen but to tell you the truth u hardly notice it when u are busy gaming or looking at movies etc (i think every 21/22" monitor has this problem but like i said u hardly notice it )

If you're happy then we're happy!

All aperture grill (AG) monitors, regardless of size, have the horizontal lines. The lines are the shadows of damper wires.

Buy a 21", the screen size is the same and the monitor costs less.


I'm not a number, I'm a free man! :mad:

the screen size MAY be the same as a 21', but when it comes to quality, a bigger size (22") even if it has the same screen size is a better choice, if you read tom's reviews on a big screen monitors.

Hi Robert i have a question maybe you can answer(or anyone else for that matter), I'm at Dells website and i am looking between the NEC FP2141SB-BK and the NEC DP2070SB-BK and for the life of me i can see what the difference is other than the 2070 is $50. I'm assuming there is something better about the 2070, do you know what that is? I left a link for both of them.

<A HREF="" target="_new"> NEC DP2070SB-BK </A>

The only thing that i truly know...

is that i know nothing at all.
