High-end CRT?

Looking for a "High-end" CRT to be used for professional graphics viewing (medical image viewing)
Looking to spend about $1000 or less. From what i gather, pixel pitch < .25, high contrast ratio, good color depth, and brightness are what i'm after. Any suggestions for particularly good models?
Thanks

  1. Wow, I'm not used to that end of the scale. I've always liked Hitachi's inexpensive .22mm dp tubes. Samsung has some VERY nice monitors that would likely suit your needs.

    Most of the monitors I've gotten from medical imaging labs were somewhat damaged by nearby equipment, causing color distortion that a simple degause couldn't correct. Wouldn't a digital flat panel be suitable?

  2. I think crashman is right that an lcd would be better. If you have your heart set on a crt and there isn't anything around that would distort it then you might want to look into the Sony Artisan color reference 21" CRT.

  3. I have a dell ultrasharp 19"lcd and the images look slightly better (but not as bright!) on my old dell crt. I think it has something to do with higher contrast ratios of CRT?
    Anyway, i'm working at home, so getting messed up by equipment at the hospital isn't a problem.

    I've looked at the Sony Artisan a bit - any good reason that the price is 1000 times higher than all other apparently comparable CRT's? Thanks for your help.
  4. Top-of-the-line LCDs have become very good in the past year or two, and even moderately priced CRT monitors can do a decent job when properly calibrated and profiled with a third party spyder and software.
    But the top end CRT's are a must have for Medical community and high end grafix design...

  5. Most of the price is probably the calibration hardware/software, that little thing stuck on the screen.
