Hi friends,

I am a graphics designer/web developer and spend many hours in front of the monitor on a daily basis. I'm looking for a quality 17" CRT Monitor that is kind on the eyes and have excellent image quality and clarity. I currently have a Dell M782P monitor that just produces too much glare no matter how I set the monitor.

I've scoured the net and cannot find reliable reviews/comparisons.

Any maker and model reccommendations would be appreciated and the points will be split fairly between all good suggestions. I don't want to pay for the wrong monitor.

Thanks as always,

Lee.

Have you considered an L.C.D monitor, they are anitglare and are alot easier to look at.

As far as C.R.T. monitors go, anything SONY i.e Trinatron is excellent also Mitsubishi make some nice monitors.

Im with sgermein. I spend ALOT of time on the box and will never go back to CRT. Even high refresh rate CRTs give me a headache. Nothing like a really GOOD LCD for the eyes. I used to have to wear glasses. After going to LCD my eyestrain is gone and so are my glasses.

Thanks :)

Are they as very good for image editing and colour matching? I have to design graphics and colour is quite important as you probably know.

As long as you get a good one, theyre fine. The type of work I do requires very fine distinctions between colors and an LCD is just fine.
