One of the great decision
s facing geek
s nowadays who are in the market for a new monitor
. Get a flat panel
, which is much more expensive, and takes up less space, or get a much bigger CRT
for the same price
I opt for CRT based monitors; Trinitron to be precise. I find that for the price of a 15" TFT display, I can get a 19" or 21" CRT. 19 or 21 inches of tube beats out 15 inches of flatness anyday, especially with Trinitron FD technology.
Hopefully the prices of flat panel displays will come down soon so that they become more of a realistic option for people seeking large displays.
