they have lcd's as well, but normaly unless it needs to fit in a very small box i prefer crt, higher refreshrates and NO DEAD PIXELS!!!!!! also if you change res's you dont get that lovely imagequility loss that lcd's get(mines native 1600x1200 and anything lower gets fuzzy even with dvi-d connection) its quite frustrating :/
well I dont have any space for another CRT on my desk but the one SAMSUNG 940BX should be a good choice right?

cuz I saw the 1st and 3rd one at Best Buy and really couldnt tell the difference from those they both looked nice but, the LG cost less and I can get it today for less with tax and dont have to wait but its always so hard to choose:banghead:

Do your self a favor and check out the ones u have selected(16.2 million colours)next to a monitor that displays over 16.7 million.A very large difference,IMO,and a big deciding point.
I have used the 931 bf for a few months,very good at games,just never looked quite right.
replaced with another samsung with more colour(16.7),Now it all looks right.

I dont know if this is too much $ for ya ,but i also have a samsung 204b 20.1" and have been very pleased by its performance.

Gotta add the fact that the dvi cable that came with the moniter is junk(randomly cycling screen).replaced it with a new cable and it works great.
Also available at best buy for close to same price.
