I think that lcd's refresh the whole screen at the same time. CRT's do it from bottom to top. I think.

And as for the refresh rate. It depends on ur eyes. Some like it faster, some slower. Some say that 85 hrz is not as good as 75 hrz.
Well my eyes are like super fast, I can see some really small flickering (nothing so big that it bothers me) while my crt is at 85 hrz. And it can't go any faster.
Unless I come up with some freaky mod

Top to bottom, i believe.. well thats what it looks like when you look at a moniter in a video camera. MAybe it depends on the moniter too.

As for the flickering, any faster refreshrate then 70, kinda hurts my eyes, i dont understand why, maybe cause its when im in total darkness, exacept for my moniter, and mouse pad.. haha ooh well..

hmmm, yes. I think that it's from top to bottom.
But I have no idea why I said bottom to top.
Maybe I'm just too tired. I gues I'll go to sleep soon

I used to have a 15 inch and was happy with it before it blew up on me. As soon as I got a 17inch though, I never want to go back to a smaller screen. It just looked so much bigger and better.

Only thing is, it doesn't support a high res, and only manages 1152x864 at 85hz (Its a CRT too), so isn't one of the best...

17 inch is plenty though. I've been on a mates that had a 25inch or something monitor, and the image looked like it bent in the middle, and it looked weird. I guess you'd get used to it though, or it might have been the monitor.

I'd definietly want one to support HD res's though if I ever wanted to connect the Xbox 360 or something.

Thats that was quite funny..

No really im not even that close to being that smart to figure out how to..wayyy way way way way way way way way way way(ok well you get the idea) ..off

I got me a 17" (CRT im very sure)
I did have a 15" and that made my eye sight worse i had to wear my glasses it was that bad(even tho i hardly did hehe)
I love 17" its much better, better viewing and everything wouldnt want any smaller ever again...ah!
My other 15" way way crap compared to this 17, and the menu on this one acutally works! so i can change it! :eg' brightness etc ect
