I was going to buy a WS LCD but after looking at the prices I went with A new HP P1230 P9613A Diamondtron Perfect Flat Screen .24mm 2048x1536 TwoTone (Silver/Black)

I got it for $174.50 :) at azatek.com. They sell both referbs/used as well as some new monitors. The clarity is much better than my 19" dell thats a few years old.

Sweet. Thats a really nice price.

I'm still a CRT guy myself. My 19" NEC Multisync is an awesome monitor. I use the 3 brightness modes (superbright modes) all the time. I couldnt go without them.

Holy crap...

http://www.azatek.com/details.asp?iid=707

The 22" model of my monitor is only $144. :drooling:

I wonder how much the shipping would be. Not that I need it, but hell, thats a smoking deal on a fantastic screen.

Any monitor will be fine in Vista 64. Vista like XP has basically plug and play monitor support, any monitor made in the last 10 or more years will be fine with the standard driver. No need for a manufactures driver.

It took about 10 days to get it. I was really temped to get the 24" widescreen CRT but it had to be shipped freight on a pallet. (To heavy for UPS or Fedex I guess) I wonder how much it weighs? I think my desk might have collasped. :p

And does it work like new. I found that place a while ago but I was kind of skeptic but for those prices :)

The reason they're so cheap, is because nobody wants crt anymore. But yes, a good crt will have better image quality than most lcds, I wont say all, because after using an Iilama VMP450 for 6 yrs, and this NEC 20wgx2, I can say this NEC has just as good quality, maybe even better IMO.

but if he ever wants to watch some later HD-DVD or blu-ray movies he will be screwed. i don't think they will release CRT with HDCP

If I feel like going a little crazy with my $$$ I might have to get one of those 22" NEC screens. I like the dual inputs on the HP model (I'd deffinitely put that to use) but I know the quality of NEC monitors and I absolutely love them. I think I may have seen screens sharper than my current 19", but the menus are great (with dozens of different options) and I rarely have to mess with the shape of the screen.

I'll go with an LCD some day, but I deffinitely prefer CRTs. The only reasons I can think of for getting an LCD are that they are smaller\lighter, quieter (they dont make that big DONGGGGG noise when you turn them on like larger CRTs do... and that can be anoying at 3AM when everyone else is asleep), sometimes sharper (at the native res) and generally have better screen geometry without making you fiddle with settings. Other than that, CRTs win at just about everything else. My screen looks perfect at any resolution from some wierd ass 120x80 Atari emulator resolution all the way up to 2048x1536 (at almost any refresh rate I want). Playing as many old and new games as I do, scalability is a requirement.

If I wasnt worried about the desk space I would probably have one of those 22" screens on the way right now. :p

I'm also in no hurry to go widescreen. I'm not sold on it, and it takes up a ton of space... not to mention there are still games that dont support it (which is sad).

I am feeling kind of crazy also. I almost bought a 20.1 inch sceptre widescreen form a friend last night. He offered it to me for 260.

Newegg is currently selling brand new 22" NEC Diamondtron CRTs for $799 , Crazy price but an awesome monitor, You wont find many places (if any) selling new trinitron crt's these days, Im still using my now 5 year old Sony GDM-FW900 24" CRT and love it :thumbsup:

Is it worth the $650 over the one I linked to earlier? :o

Wow, the HP P1230 the original poster linked to is even better than the NEC model I was looking at from the specs. It does 2048x1536 at a whopping 85Hz AND it has dual outputs... its pretty much identical to the $800 screen Mathesar linked to.

Holy crap, its taking all of my willpower to not buy that HP screen right now...

Must... resist...

EDIT: *bites finger nails*

Mannn... you guys have no idea how close I am to plunking down $174.50 just like the OP.(pb) (daz) :skeleton2


EDIT2: A 6 Month warranty on an amazingly well priced Grade-A refurb of a top of the line CRT... does it get any better? I dont know if I should pass this up... :(:(:(:(

Ok, I'm weak.

I've got one on the way right now. :p

I dont think I'll regret it though. What a monster of a screen. I cant wait to see Battlefield 2 PoE2 at 2048x1536 on a 22" CRT powered by a G80.

:D

It's hit and miss with Azatek.com as seen in this thread. (http://www.hardforum.com/showthread.php?t=1102797&page=1&pp=20) ,and here. (http://www.hardforum.com/showpost.php?p=1030066550&postcount=89) Refurbs are a gamble.

I'm sure your eyes will agree it's a better monitor, with all that radiation an' all :).
