    This poll is formed to determine how far along PC users have come or not when it comes to picture tube types compared to todays modern flat screen types.

    Most banks i walk into still for the most part still use the old types where some have modernized up to space saving flat screens.

    It's meant to be a comparison of sorts just to see how far along todays particular hardware screen componant monitors now compare to todays flat ones and what all of us have long depended on with those bulky type of space screens that always took up a lot of table space.

    Thanks EASTER

    Wife has 2 LCDs. A 19" and a 22" wide screen. I still run a 21" CRT. How ever I have been planning on a new 24" LCD for myself. After seeing the 22" WS I got for her I believe that will be my next purchase.

    Its widescreen LCD's all the way for me now. Currently have 32" BenQ and a 22" Dell. I still have an old 14" HP CRT monitor in the cupboard for nostalgic reasons :).

    Changed home computers to LCD screens years ago
    At office we run dual LCDs
    Most of my small business clients have also made the change to LCD screens a few years ago. All new hardware sold to clients are with LCD screens.

    Hello,
    My parents use a 19inch dell flat screen.
    I use a 17inch flat screen.

    when my 17inch screen on my old pc broke the companie said they wouldnt replace it then the day after my parents ordered a new screen they said they would. so i got the 17inch screen for myself. for around a week when i had to use a 17inch CRT it hurt my eyes.

    Flats only here now.

    IMHO they should have been commonplace for years now & easily within reasonable reach (price) for every PC user to have them, since, they save incredible space, no space-wasting picture tube type of display apparatus or heat radiation they give off.

    The flats are so much better digital eye friendly and run cooler then their predecessors, so forth and so on. Such as lighter in weight too.

    I'm still using CRTs. A flat screen would be nice and I'll probably get one when this monitor gives out, but this one is only a couple of years old. Might be a while.

    Switched from 15" CRT to 22" widescreen LCD when I set up new Intel Quad Core Q6600 system 14 months ago. No going back. :D

    Last week there were reports about a price-fixing court case in the U.S. against major mfgs:

    LG, Sharp, Chunghwa admit to LCD price fixing

    I was forced to buy LCD, so I picked LG L1970HR and in the future I will be forced to buy wide LCD, so I will think about LG W2252TQ.
    CRT are still much more better than LCD, their only minus is power consumption, but you can not buy quality CRT anywhere these days.

    I am a dinosaur....CRT only, rest looks fake to me. Hanging on to my three CRTs as I know they are all but history. My ancient 21' SONY which has no equal, my equally trusty NEC 19" and newly acquired cheap but surprisingly good AOC 17".

    I agree with all of the above and the newer models of flatscreens also consume less juice then older types of televisions.

    Yes but the CRTs look better :)
     
  22. The one downside of an LCD, as far as I'm concerned, is that gamma changes with viewing angle so it's no good for certain photographic work. Other than that... LCD all the way.

    I don't know how many audiophiles are here on this forum, but the difference between LCD and cathode-ray is similar to the difference between vacuum tube amplification and transistor amplification.

    Only a true purist will understand why any LCD panel is a poor comparison to a top-shelf cathode ray display.
