    Re: is an LCD Monitor good to use?

    LCD is fine to use. There are minor drawbacks, mostly having to do with artifacting, ghosting, and blurring - but on modern LCD's these issues are becoming less and less of a problem. You can also look at the specifications for a given LCD and see what its response time is (in ms), maximum resolution/brightness/contrast and pixel pitch.

    Note that the most expensive feature of LCD's seems to be their optimum/native resolution. Getting optimum resolutions past 1280x1024 is very expensive, whereas with a CRT, 1280x1024 is a walk in the park.

    It's basically the same deal as CRT TV's versus LCD TV's. CRT's are known for low price, high-res, and realistic picture. LCD's are great for light-weight, low profile, and great sharpness/contrast. It's a matter of personal preference if you ask me.

      I went to a 19 " LCD which claims to have a 8 ms response time . I don't have any problems with ghostingor bluring and it did improve my game play as I could now see things that weren't visisble with my 4 year old 19 " viewsonic crt

                I have the Samsung 191T and absolutely love it.

                    samsung 914v here, 12ms.

                    will never go back to CRT, even with gaming. i have my 19" crt sitting to the side as a second monitor, and the LCD's quality is tons better...as long as you run its native resolution.

                        I just got a Rosewill R912E 19" 3 days ago switching from a 17" crt and I am very pleased. It makes BF2 look completely different (better).
