New monitor purchase

Recommended Posts

Well after debating on wether or not to get a LCD monitor (with the recent price drops on the Dell's and whatnot) I had a change of heart after reading numerous reviews. Considering most of my time in front of the monitor will be playing games and editing photos/movies/music I came to the conclusion that CRT is still the way to go for me. I just ordered one of these:

All the reviews I saw gave it good scores. It always seemed to be the best bang for buck CRT out there. Anyway I had to order something. My current monitor is getting worse and my eyes can't take it anymore. Should be nice to see things clear again. :)

...and not worth it IMO. ;) I figured I couldn't go wrong with a $509 solid well known/supported brand name 22" CRT monitor (one that has gotten great reviews). Just seemed like the best value out there for what I need.

Lift with the legs and not the back. I started doing some squat exercises in preperation for it. ;) Seriously though once it gets set on my desk it aint going anywhere so weight/size is pretty much a non issue for me. My desk is huge so thats not a concern either.

 

 

My eyes are going to be so thankful!

Well, if it makes you feel better, for the past 3-4 years, I have been using an Optiquest Q110 (made by ViewSonic), which is a 21" CRT that I bought for approximately $500. Thus far, I have had exactly zero complaints (knock on wood). It's a gorgeous monitor, and like you, I seldom have a need to budge it off my desktop. The one time I've moved it, it was because I needed to relocate my desk - no big deal.

 

Just thought you'd like to hear from a ViewSonic/Optiquest big-honkin' CRT owner who is quite happy with his "bang-for-the-buck" purchase. :)
