Personally, a good CRT is any model that can fit in the dumpster, but if yer heart is set on buying a 30-pound photon-tormenter, keep looking.
I bet you are using a 45" LCD?

Are CRTs still any better then LCD, because of the glare?

Glare is not the most important issue when it comes to display quality, but modern CRT's do a good job at preventing glare, not as good as LCD's though. But LCD's with a glass plate in front of the screen also have some amount of glare.

Why would anyone in their right mind put a glass plate in front of the LCD screen?

I knew what you meant.

It is that shiny surface on the screen, but it is coated in something that reduces glare.

CRT's have better image quality then LCD's for the price. A simple fact.

does any1 know if CRT's have HDCP? if you don't know about it read this article:

http://www.firingsquad.com/hardware/...p_lcd_roundup/

it's about LCD monitors not supporting HDCP so it wouldn't diaplay vista or something like that? and i want to know if that's only for LCD's, or is it for CRT's too.
