It also bleeds out the costs over time if you do it that way. It doesnt really matter all to much, but for the record. Warez Monster is right, bigger is always better. 21" crt (dont have the cash for a big flatty and Im not going smaller!)
Just data entry? I work at an insurance company of 500 pc's, not all have plat panels, 500 is a lot to cover, however DE, data entry has all plat panel because they stare at the monitor and have to read from it fast and accurately. There is a huge need for people like data entry, sure, ****ty job, low pay, long hours, weekends all the time, but they need a nice big monitor.
Bigger is always better. But im confused, dont replace one if the new one isnt at least 5 inches larger? that means that if you have a 21 inch now, you shouldnt get bigger until you can afford, or until they make a 26 incher? what kind of **** is that? just wondering.
