Anything with a Sony Trinitron or Mitsubishi Diamondtron tube should do you very nicely.

their very good except the draw 2 lines across the monitor,which i dont want are there any equally good but without the lines

The Trinitron or Mitsubishi Diamondtron (made under licence from Sony) are probably the best CRT tubes you can buy.

You'll find that eventually, if the lines are visible, that you will soon get use to them. Try variations of contrast and brightness to see if they become less visible.

Bit like living on a busy main road - eventually you don't notice the traffic.

After you have been using this type of monitor for a while, most people no longer notice the lines, or so I have been told.

Rather in the same way that most peoples hearing ignores background noise.

Accurate reproduction of colour and swift response times are the two primary qualities of such CRTs.

Pity my fingers aren't as fast as yours.

Total agreement

I'm no expert on the subject but I've just had to scrap my 19" trinitron monitor(it seems as though my raster lines were showing badly!!and the colour was beginning to fade)however,during the 5 or so years I've had it,it's been hammered to death by my son for gaming and myself for photos and gaming.It's been a real workhorse(superb picture ,and no worries about response times).As for the banding lines common to all trinitron tubes you don't even notice them.(well I didn't anyway)But the thing you will notice with them is the weight!!I can vouch for that having just carried ours downstairs, about 65lbs!!!!!Don't know what this new acer lcd is like on photo's yet, but on games,even with all the stuff I've read about ghosting of lcd's on games unless they have miniscule response times, I don't have time to look for ghosting lol.

thnx iwiil consider this

I had a CTX with a Sony FD Trinitron tube. I really only noticed the two lines if I went looking for them, otherwise I was never aware of them.
