19" Mitsubishi Diamond Plus 93 will give excellent picture and colour for video editing at much less than the cost of flat screens

I don't know about 'ultimate' performance, but my vote's for TFT. I rarely watch DVD on mine but its fine. It allows you to reclaim desk space, looks smart, & even my humble 15" has a decent size display (bigger than equivolent CR). 17" aren't so exorbatant now.

I agree with ROB/R that the best picture you can get is with a Mitsubishi NF screen. These are used in the better Mitsubishi and Iiyama monitors, and are still at a reasonable price. TFT monitors are getting very good, and the prices are coming down. However I still don't find the colours look natural, and they vary according to the viewing angle. Where TFT monitors do win is in the precision of the pixels. Because each pixel position is precisely defined the geometry is precise and text characters are very well defined.

you'll do it on the biggest and best CRT monitor you can buy.

TFT screens are great - they use less space and on a good one the picture quality is stunning, but the colour rendition won't be as good for video or image editing as on a quality CRT screen. I use a TFT for general work like editing the forum and writing articles etc., and a 21" CRT for image editing and web design.
