I use this CRT monitor for about 3 years now and I can say that I am very satisfied with it. In my opinion, it is the best 17 inch CRT monitor that was ever built. I am saying this due to my long experience with it: during this period of 3 years, my eyes never hurt, I never felt sleepy or had headaches. And that with an average of 5-6 hours of using it per day. You might say that I am some sort of person that is not affected by monitors. That is not right as I felt numerous times disconfort after watching another monitor for 30-40 minutes.

On the second hand, the specifications of this monitor are excellent, I have tested it even at 2048x1536 and it worked properly. I use it now at 1152x864@100Hz. Quality of the colors is good, Moire effect is less visible, lightness and contrast is excellent. When comparing it to a LCD monitor, the only disadvantage I can see is the weight of 15lg which will be an impediment if you have to move it around. At all the other specifications, let's face it, a good quality CRT will always be better than an LCD/

I definitely recommend this monitor for anyone looking for a good quality CRT monitor.
