LCDs are great. I never realized how damn unclear my CRT was until i bought a 19" CRT and run it at 1280X1024 resolution. Awesome investment because they came down in price so damn much

i know the question wasnt directed at me. But the main reason my LCD was bought was because of the clearness of it for my eyes.
