Being a graphics artist, I require a steady, flicker-free, sharp and true-to-colour monitor. Even in this day and age nothing beats the kind or CRT this monitor has. It is a well-known fact that the inherent properties of LCD monitors give a lot of problems for graphics work. I have looked around for a possible TFT replacement for my main monitor, but have found that the technology for me does not give me what I need, not even in the top of the line models. The inherent high contrast and colour/lightness gradients are a problem if you need to use accurate (small) tint differences and/or shading on images. So I reverted back to looking at the CRTs I could still find.

Combinin the excellent picture tube with a fully flat front surface with the no-nonsense and calibration friendly adjustments, this monitor has it all!

Some people would find the two thin horizontal damper wires on the image tube annoying, but it is a small price to pay for having an image that is not distorted, clear and offers everything for both casual and professional use. The wires show as very thin, dark horizontal lines, especially visible if you have a clear white background. They can be noticed easily on such backgrounds, but in my opinion do not take away from any sort of viewing pleasure.

The additional wide range of resolutions and refresh rates alows for this monitor to be adjusted just the way you like it.

The on-screen display is also clear and easy to control, although the factory setting for how long it takes before being cancelled, is a little short. It is easy to fix that though. The menues are clear through the use of text and graphics, easy to understand and to operate.

It is relatively heavy in weight and definitely not the cheapest monitor around, even second hand, but both have reason. The quality of components used accounts towards both, and the pay-off for it is a solid, pleasant image that can be relied upon. Additionally, these monitors last; you may be set for 10 years or more.

Helpful review, but LCD all the way for me

Good start, Now you need more detail about the monitor and why not go for a LCD?
