My old Trinitron VAST monitor has died on me and I'm looking for a new monitor fast. Most of time that I spend on my computer is for gaming purposes and I'm hoping that you folks can give me some recommendations on what is currently the most recommended computer monitor for gaming in the market today.
I have no knowledge of computer monitors whatsoever. Should I get a LCD monitor, or should I get a CRT monitor for gaming purposes? Which one has the lowest draw times? How long will the monitor last me?
I don't totally agree! I have been using a Hitachi CML174SX with an ATI AIW 9700 Pro for the past year. The panel is FAST! No ghosting...very bright and the clarity is great. 16ms response time...Gaming is never an issue, nor TV capture, etc.
bah, i've got a samsung 172t which is just fine even for games(bf1924 , swg). plus it has a nice wall mount. might be discontinued though. don't worry about all the talk of ghosting etc. I bet you won't even notice.
Well, I didnt.

I heard that LCD panel can last 30,000 - 40,000 Hrs. Anyway, I've got 3 yrs warranty with it. The brightness is 400cd which is too bright for me (I use it for also 4 Hrs/day) but it is brilliant when I watching some movie. I heard they have tuner box available but I have not really try it with TV program.
Have heard a rumor that Acer is about to announe a zero defect policy on their new LCD range (1 dead pixel in the first 12 Months and they replace it with a new one).
Also have read a review of the Dell Ultrasharp 2001FP 20" LCD, it supposedly is a great monitor (20.1", 16ms/24bit, 1600 x 1200, USB hub and DVI and s-video input) for US $899, but have heard they are hard to get hold of.
