I'm umming and arghing if I should update my old Iiyama LS902UT CRT monitor which is 19inch with one of these new TFT ones I've seen a BenQ FP91G+ that was recommended from a friend at work as been good, just don't know if I really need it and maybe should wait untill my old one goes.

I do alot of digital art and well just wanted to ask will this monitor show much difference in some like corel painter and Photoshop or wouldn't you bother updated really.

I would stay with your old monitor until such time it starts giving you problems and or the image quality detiorates.

I bought a new computer about a year ago, which came with a Samsung 19-inch flat panel monitor. My old machine had a 19-inch Iiyama CRT monitor. I gave the old machine to my dad.

Frankly, I wish I'd held on to the CRT monitor. I use Photoshop and other image editing software a lot, and the colour representation on the CRT was much better than it is on the new monitor.

Maybe my Samsung isn't much good; maybe (despite a great deal of fiddling) I've never managed to get it set up properly - I don't know. All I do know is that I much preferred the Iiyama for the kind of work you're talking about.
