If you didn't see much difference, My choice would be the 19", only 4" advantage

Default Back to the question...

A crt responds faster to changes in brightness and contrast than a lcd monitor. The crt uses an electron beam at the speed of light while a lcd screen has to cattle prod a chemical to change brightness and contrast.
