Well, as the title suggests... im looking to switch from crt to lcd... and i will be gaming...

I made a post about this in general hardware... but later realized it might be wise to ask here as well :) (sorry if its a bother)

Well... if you game on an lcd... tell me your experiences with it - a la ghosting and bad pictures and stuff...

and if you like it.. tell me which model you use and which you would recommend !!!

    Get an LCD with the fastest response time possible if youre going to be gaming or itll look crappy.

    LCDs are better for office work than games/video.

    Youd be better off with a decent CRT.

    i remember i used to have a huge 21 inch monitor that i lugged around with me at college and what not. i seriously almost blew out my back whenever i tried to move it. and then i traded it for an all-mighty all-powerful 15 INCH LCD (OMG!!!!111!!). this was back in the day when they were hot stuff. anyway, just recently i bumped it up to a dell 18.1 inch LCD (that extra .1 of an inch is VERY important) and i absolutely love it. anyway, just my two cents . . .

    If youve gotta get an LCD, watch out for dead pixel clauses in the warranty. I had 5 on my LCD in about 7 months, and i was lucky enough to get a replacement.

    If the manufacturer wont replace it untill you have 20 dead pixels the screen will look totally gay.

    "Hyundai has recently started guaranteeing its monitors for less than three dead pixels. Hats off - this is much more than most of its rivals can say"

    So if its got three or more... i gots a new one :)

    One dead picel is enough to piss me off.

    LCD technology has some way to go before being better than CRT.

    Most reviews Ive seen on LCD's say its not for gamers.(Not a fast enough refresh rate) Nothings better for gamers yet than CRT.My 02 cents.:cool:
