Default I just bought this monitor and I'm selling this one.

I just bought this monitor: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...MEWA:IT&ih=004
And I'm selling this one: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...MEBI:IT&ih=015
Now before anyone answers with "Why the hell did you buy a crappy CRT, LCDs are way better"
- Firstly, CRTs look good in a number of resolutions outside the monitors native res, this helps when trying to run a demanding game.
- Secondly, CRTs can reach refresh rates and contrast ratios that an LCD can only dream of.
- Thirdly, I can buy a new 21" CRT for the same price as I can sell my 17" LCD. Plus the CRT will give better image quality.
Pretty good deal I think.

I know what you mean. I had a CRT that cost me $400. It was top of the line 21'. Then I bought a LCD. After a while I wanted to revert back to the CRT. But my mom gave it away for $25. It was huge, used for 3D Modeling and Virtual Reality. It was great.

CRTs always hurt my eyes, even on like 75Hz....

But awesome,an extra 4", plus better image quality. Not bad

The one I bought weighs 30KG(66Ibs)!! No wonder they're charging 20 for shipping.

Just so you know...it's not going to be 21" like you would think of a 21" LCD. For CRTs, the measurement includes the frame. And that thing has a huge frame, so it would be more like a 19" LCD...

Mine was a 21' screen. The thing was huge. Took up all the depth in my desk.

Yeah, because the Dell P1230 is actually a 22" monitor, not a 21":
http://support.dell.com/support/edoc...ntro/intro.htm

So that's correct, the viewable area should be about 20.3".

Yeah I know, but 20" is still not bad. I might go dual.
