    Just curious. It seem the world has gone crazy for TFTs..... I can see that they are great in not taking up space... But otherwise I am an ignorant. Please educate me.

    At the moment I plan on buying a 19'' CRT. It seem to be more flexible as it does not have a native resolution and I have the space for it. Would you recommend otherwise? It is for gaming.

    Certainly cheap enough, and have advantages over LCD such as various resolutions that won't be detremental like LCD (must always choose native) also better colour reproduction and blacks.

    You could always have both, LCD for windows, CRT for gaming. I have a 19" CRT but probably be buying a 20" TFT.

    No interference problems.
    Easy to move about.
    Takes up less space.
    No convergence problems.
    Dont take ages to set the geometry right.
    Typically more screenspace. A 19" TFT has way more screenspace than a 19" CRT.
    Much sharper, clearer text IME.
