well, right now, my b/f bought me a monitor for our desktop computer about a few months ago, and it is a synaps monitor. LCD monitor i believe. it is one of those flat ones. I like it pretty well though. the old monitor with the desktop crapped out on us. so, he went out and bought a new one for our desktop computer. it seems to be a good monitor. i don't know much about them though, but, this one's pretty good it seems. :D

maaaaaaaan CRT monitors are too way too old to use in the 21st century. i sugsest buying a LCD, 17inch LCD monitors are not that expensive anymore and if you are not willing to pay 100$ for it, there are plenty avaliable second-hand.

I'm using 17-in AOC Flat monitors and a 14-in NEC LCD. As soon as I have enough budget, I will surely waste no time -- I will replace my flat monitors with LCDs. LCDs are more expensive than CRTs but LCDs consume lesser electricity.

i am using LCD monitor. i think it is better than CRT. because crt may harm to our body. so many rays are ejecting from it. crts are space consuming monitors.

Cathode Ray Tube huh? Wow, I didn't think anyone used that stuff any more. At present, I'm using an HP 22" LCD flat screen. I gotta admit, LCD or Plasma is the way to go. A CRT IS a television tube emission. The advantage is that you can see images from any angle. However, unlike LCD or Plasma, which uses liquid crystal, excited by electricity, creating lines of "pixels" (little squares)...a CRT creates lines of "dots". This is done by radiating negatively charged electrons (cathodes) in a vacuum (or tube). This radiated beam of electrons gets narrowed down the tube, where they in turn meet up with radiated positively charged electrons (anodes). Since radiation will ignite electron prticles in the form of light, the red, green, & blue of the spectrum is then transmitted to your screen in dotted lines. These dots are all of equal size, and depending on the size of your screen, this determines the size of your picture. Whew! LCD (or Plasma) on the other hand, is not. It's electrons are excited by electricity, which become magnatized through a liquid crystal. In a sense, they "stick" together, only that they are disbursed in the form of squares (pixels) which can be manipulated (resolution). Dependindon the resolution of these pixels, determines the size of your image, whether your screen be small or big. The higher the resolution, the sharper the image. Advantages....no bulkiness & no heat as with a CRT. Image is clear and sharp. Colors are more vibrant. Now...I hope that helps in making your decision? For my money? I'd go with the LCD. You'll love it. commanderxo

Hi Buddy i am using an ordinary 19" monitor it is a Samsung SyncMaster955DF well it is perfectly working and it is in a very good condition the only problem with this is that it is consuming too much of power so my UPS backup is getting less that is the only problem with it. I am not the right person to answer that question so it is better u contact your friends, relatives who r good at it. Good Luck
