  8. Well I just bought (6) Samsung 191T monitors thru Dell, 1900FP, I paid $624 each with Free shipping. I am ordering 2 more. These monitors are awesome. I previously had a Trinitron 19" CRT, I liked it for its time. Times are new, all CRTs SUCK.

    If you can't afford all at the same time, then just buy them in stages, believe me you will be very happy that you waited.

    BTW, not only was Dell the cheapest, but they have a 30 day NO questions asked return policy. This is the #1 reason I bought thru Dell, no one else even came close. Be very careful with bad pixels.

    Conclusion
    Only once in a while does a product truly impress us. Occasionally a product comes along and just blows our socks off. Normally, we would let you all know now that day is today. However, the 191T does have its pitfall: the price. We mentioned earlier that the difficulty in producing almost 4 million transistors slightly thicker than a human hair is ‘complicated’. Certain levels of quality must be kept for a company like Samsung to deliver. Most online retailers sell the SyncMaster 191T around 1150 USD.

    The image was acceptable. Incredible for an LCD actually. The response time (25ms) gave us a very smooth display.

    For many, the price on the 191T is justifiable. If price is no object, the 191T is the best 19" LCD on the market. As we have pointed out, the features are excellent. Performance on the Samsung was at par or better than most CRTs, while other advantages put it well ahead. Low power consumption, (near) zero heat generation, dual inputs, practically no glare, the small footprint, a 13lb weight; all combined into the sleekest looking monitor any of us have ever seen. Hospitals, offices, and other tight working places could benefit with the 191T. Gamers beware, however, as the 191T shares the same streaking problem that plagues the vast majority of LCD monitors on the market. For our first LCD review we have to thank Samsung for sending us such an excellent product. Those not on a budget will find themselves getting a solid, dependable, quality monitor. "Unquote"

  9. Not sure if you are still considering CRT monitors since you seem to be on the fence...If you are, you might want to check out the Viewsonic P95f+(black or beige) whichever is your preference...I connected them to a Matrox Parhelia card for triple screen configuration...I liked the fact that I could run them at 1600x1200 at very high refresh rate,...They also go up to as high as 2048x1536(but you would go blind looking at the text)...Overall a solid product since you can load up on them for $250(range) for 19" true flat screen with high refresh rates and excellent screen quality...

  10. if u spend hours a day in front of a comp.. it might be well worth it for your HEALTH to get a lcd over a crt. With the amount of radiation crts emits, why would anyone want to take that risk? I understand the problem is due to cost.. but what are the costs of health and life? Not trying to scare anyone, but why take the chance? Spend a little bit more for a used lcd, and cut down your risk for cancer and other related diseases.
