ViewSonic makes nice stuff, but I like the CRTs. They have an implosion risk, better color, and give you a workout! What's not to love?

I got a Samsung LCD a few years ago and can't complain about the image-quality. Check out some reviews of their products.

Both make solid products, but I am a viewsoniic fanboy. I have the 17 in version of that same lcd. Awesome color & performance.

A good LCD screen removes the need for CRT completely. A bad LCD makes you wish you were still using a CRT.

You'd probably be happy with either of them.

I'd advise you to fo with the LCD, as it's gonna save you a lot of space.

LCD monitors dont look great unless you are running them at their native resolution and refresh rate.

Check what the native refresh rate and resolution are and set them at that and see if it looks better. If its not at native settings it sometimes looks blocky on letters and stuff.

I just got this Samsung for the girl and it's freakin NICE! http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?skuId=7954886&type=product&productCategoryId=cat01012&id=1152837304703 Samsung SyncMaster 22" Widescreen Flat-Panel TFT-LCD Monitor Model: 225BW

LCD is much easier on the eyes and looks sweet.
