Not only do I have my LCD, but I have two 17" for my secondary workstations.


However, it seems that when it changes colors, the tube has trouble stayting still...it rotates a bit.


This one works nicely.

I wonder how low they will get the ms time... supposedly CRTs run much faster than that.. whereas LCD looks perfectly fine to me at 12 or lower.

CRT's response rates are insanely fast, down into the nanoseconds.

I've heard CRT's have way fsater response rates and the colors are truer. I personally do not like them because they hurt my eyes which is why I got an LCD and the LCD is much easier on my eyes. I'm fine with the LCD, the color seems brighter and the response is fine to me.

yeah, but on a LCD, its very nice. If a LCD is cheap, you can tell the difference. The colors arent as vivid, and things just look crappy. But once you get a good one, its hard to tell the difference. I like LCDs, but try to get your hands on a 2007WFP from Dell, and see if you'll go back

Good point, but I have 5.1 phillips speakers, they're preety good, nothing compared to those, and I have onboard, but I have them set up just like that lol..I dont really know where else to put them, dont have any spot to put them behind the computer chair, so ehh I just leave it like that..Just wondering, 1-10, what are these? They sound alright to me I guess, but a soundcard would make a difference I guess.

Nah, the WFP's have been having problems, unless Dell finally sorted them out. My dream monitor is still the Gateway FPD2182W 21" Widescreen High-Definition LCD Monitor.
