Not like mine.

A couple years ago I paid $150 shipped for one of the best CRTs ever made, as a refurb. 22", 2048x1536 @ 85Hz. I found one at another store for $900 brand new.

Its probably 5 years old now, but I still haven't found a reason to pay $600 for an LCD that has a lower max resolution and looks like crap at anything but that resolution.

If this thing ever dies on me I'll invest in a good LCD... or maybe I'll just bust out my old 19" NEC CRT. That thing will still do 2048x1536 @ 60Hz.
