    21"(+) Monitor Recommendations?

    My Cornerstone P1500 packed in, dont really like the idea of reverting back to 17" (what Im using just now) . . . whats a good choice for 21" (CRT only) which is good value for money?

    wont be buying a good while yet, but want to get started on looking at some models.


    Been eyeing up the IBM P260 for starters.

    Sony and NEC are your best ones up that kinda range. IBM don't exacly have a great track record.

    If your strapped for cash and need another cheapo 21" try eBay - there only about £60-80 like the CornerStones we're.

    Are Sony still making CRTs? I had a look for one a while back but couldn't find any.

    Ah, appears they're still making 21"+, which is good.

    I have a 22" Iiyama, and it is stonking good. It uses the Diamondtron tube (M22 I think)

    http://www.iiyama.co.uk/default.asp?SID=&NAV=236&PCAT=1

    The 514 is the one I have.

    And you cannot beat iiyama tech support.

    I use the IIyama 514 which is good. I still prefer the LCDs for non gaming/photography use. But you can't beat a CRT for games (especially if you want to try different resolutions)
