AOC 17" and find it is excellent for games and DVD movie's, but it is such a personal thing to choose that you will need to look for yourself.
If you pop into PC World, on a weekday when it's not too busy, ask them to play a movie on Both types, and then to open word or similar, and type some text in.
Sit back and watch for a while, at least one hour, then decide which you think is best, not only for the display but other factors like desk space/weight, etc.
One reason (among many others) that I like the TFT, is the fact you can turn off the monitor while leaving the PC on, (As you can with a CRT) but when you switch back on, it's there instantly, crystal sharp display, perfect from corner to corner, no waiting for warm up, no adjustment of display settings.
A small thing for some people maybe, but over time it does make a big difference. Have a look, and take your time in coming to a decision, you will be looking at it for a long time once you have bought it. J.
