Subjectyour opinions validate my existence: LCD or CRT? Reply to this message

my monitor died on me yesterday -- I suspect the CRTube inside just fried (ie: the green LED light is on, so it's getting an input signal even though it doesn't display anything) -- and i'm going to have to get a new one.

should I get an LCD or CRT?

19 inch LCDs are typically $349+ and max out their resolution at 1280x1024 (which is pretty much fixed cos you can't change an LCD's resolution without it getting all blurry, apparently)

there's a 19inch CRT I'm looking at for $227 that goes up to 1792 x 1344 (and is also a flat screen blah blah blah)

the computer is used mainly for entertainment (movies, some games), internet stuff, and video-editing.

what do you lot recommend?
