    Any of you still running CRT's

    Let me tell you TFT's are the way forward, my Hyundai Q17s arrived at lunch time and i've been drooling every since, no more CRT's for me. TFT's are the future.

    Me too! I can't even afford to upgrade my current spec as it is, let alone a spanking new £300+ TFT! LOL!

    I use two 21" monitors, so replacing them with 19"-20" TFT's to match.. with 16ms (or lower!) response time, a good "dead pixel" policy and perfect gaming performance.. is gonna set me back nearly a £1000!

    Err.. nope. Think Il stick with my CRT's. TFT's are nice but the difference between two CRT's and two TFT's in both price, performance and warranty (my iiyama CRTs are on three year next day replacement)..

    TFT's are the future but a nice 22" CRT is the present

    ... and they are instantly replaced if they go wrong.. unlike TFT's.. where it has to be X pixels before they do

    I've got a 21" Sony Trinitron - and I'm Very happy with it. TFT monitor's show you the compression in Jpeg images too easily / readily if the image is compressed too much - and I think the colours are too saturated

    Yup, still on CRT.

    TFT seams like a step backward atm. Mainly the drawbacks are price, reliability and weak warranties as mentioned.

    Plus my CRT keeps me fit when going to lans etc, its about the only exercise I get

    Have an Iiyama Pro 514 22" & an Iiyama Pro 454 19" atm. And enough space for both of them.

    They cost me a pretty penny. I like games, 'nuff said

    I'd consider changing to TFT if it was proved to me they'll run games at a decent res and frame rate. And, of course, if I came into a big wad of cash.

    I grant you price is a issue, I'm lucky enough to be able to afford it, tho I am a tiny bit older than some of you, i'm also single and not got any dependants so i'm in a position to be able to buy these sort of things. But reliability i'm not so sure about, and weak warranties is something the Hyundai hasn't got, I've seen some solid steps forward on this, and the Hyundai's RMA for dead pixels is one of the best about.

    Plus i'm a lucky sod and didn't get any dead pixels, and as for Lans, I can finally do it easily now, LCD in one hand and Shuttle in the other

    Bought an Iiyama VM 454 Pro about 6 months back. Amazing monitor, space is not an issue for me so I don't need to get a TFT at the time being.
