Default CRT Monitors

Hello all, I'm looking to buy a 19 inch crt monitor around the 200-300 dollar range. I found a samsung and viewsonic crt that are comparable.

Viewsonic

Hands down, the viewsonic. Those 997's have had some problems. If I had to pick out a CRT for you I would pick that Viewsonic you have there. Anything more than that is just too much money for a CRT. Good choice.

Yea i'd say they both are very nice. In my situation i would go with the samsung just to save $20 but apparently vaderpro says they've had some problems... so in that case, mine as well go with the viewsonic. Viewsonic is definitely a top-notch company.

The absolute best CRT monitors are made by iiyama and LaCie.
