Hi, I can't decide whether to go for a 19" crt or tft monitor, budget at just under £300. I've been looking at an LG 1915s TFT and a Mitsubishi Diamond Pro CRT. Does anyone know anything about these monitors to help me decide. AAARRGGHHHH!
I've gone from an aging 19" CRT to a 17" TFT and theres very little size difference between them, about half an inch! I don't know which one you should go for either, personally I like my TFT but the Mitsubishi is a cracking monitor. Had a look for a review on the LG and couldn't find one either, I presume its too new?
I'd probably have to see them both running. The LG 1915s, so I've heard, is good for gaming, with a response rate of 12 ms, but sounding good on paper doesn't mean anything. Has anyone used this monitor for gaming, or indeed the Mitsubishi Diamond Pro? Please let me know.
Usually with larger TFT screens 25ms is expected and is OK. Preferably go for something around 16ms. If you can afford the 19" TFT I would recommend you get one instead of CRT. Why? Saves desk space, less eye strain and a 19" TFT is bigger than a 19" CRT because it doesn't curve. Also you don't have to constantly readjust your screen on TFTs, on CRTs, everytime the computer wakes from power save mode, your screen size will normally change; on TFTs this doesn't happen, I don't know why but on the TFTs I've used it doesn't happen.
