Default need a new monitor

im on a CRT now, great picture quality, but its just too damn big and heavy to keep moving around like i need to.

So im looking at a flatscreen of some sort. LCD or Plasma, i dont particularly care for how it looks or anything like that, what is important is that the picture quality is good, as close to the CRT as possible. Suggestions?

Cool "REFUND!"

"Mhaaaan what I'd give for a monitor like that."

It dosn't really matter what size monitor it is becaus when your Mooving it around all the time, any MONOCROME-Like CTR or trinitron monitor is vastly oversised. Removing your hard drive and putting it in a laptop computer of some sort sounds like the best Idea.


Or you can just get a HD display. Usualy price'd under $200.
