That doesn't jibe with my experience. Have you looked at the latest crop of
18.1-inch LCD monitors? I've been working with a Philips Brilliance 180P
monitor for the past two months and would never go back to a CRT. First of
all, the color and contrast do *not* shift during normal head movements
even if I move to the very edges of the screen. Sharpness and contrast are
equal to any equivalent-sized CRT that I have ever seen. It took a little
effort to adjust the color neutrality because the factory-supplied profile
was faulty but now the color is outstanding. Also, there is a lot to be
said for less eyestrain as compared to working on a CRT. Try one; you might
like it. Check out the latest Philips and Sony offerings in particular.
Why do you suppose Apple is moving away from CRT's? It's not because they
want to risk ditching all their graphics industry customers. I'm on a
Windows 2000 PC, btw.
