well im ganna by a lcd screen soon and i found this one to be nicely priced and pretty big. samsun 191t well first of all do u guys think for 19inch and a good look there is something better?(for a good price too) i founf this lowest price around 870$ (i think) and my main question is i read some reviews for this monitor and they said the only bad thing about it is ghosting for moving objects what is ghosting, is it when like a moving object leaves a trail?:confused:

yep thats what is it. The response time of the screen will be low and for example when you play fast games like quake and unreal you will see a lot of weird trails and weird color spots

Ghosting? Its exactly that as far as i know. With LCDs, you wont ever get the crisp, sharpe display that you do with a CRT monitor . Not with the current crop anyway. On all the ones i've seen there is always a trail left behind moving images.

What will you main use of you PC be?

If its games and stuff like that stick to a CRT monitor.

If its mainly for applications, browsing the net etc then go for a LCD.

You will get a certain degree of ghosting with ALL LCDs.

i have a 15" tft and i have never seen any ghost trail. i would say buy a nice tft screen that has a low response time.

anything Trinitron is usually a good bet. Make sure that the refresh rates are high (85Hz or above)... Dot pitch is important too, the lower the better...

I have a 21" HP monitor, a 19" Hitachi, a 17 inch Sony Trinitron and a 17 inch IBM G70. (The first three are on one system) Of them all, I much prefer my 19" Hitachi. The picture on it is so crisp. The colors are awesome too. I am not really all that pleased with my Trinitron because it's old and there is a line that runs through the top of it. My IBM has a nice picture on it but it's old too. The 21" HP is nice in size, has a descent picture and color quality. But, like I said, my Hitachi is the better of the 4.

none of these apply to lcd's, though...? they're attributes for crt's.

well, lcd's can have higher than 60hz refresh rates.. but you would have to have a response time of under 15ms for it to even make a difference. real response time, too... not manufacturer's figure.

Brand new review of the Hitachi CML174SXW... and it got great results.

"The response time of the CML174SXW is the fastest of all at only 16 ms!"

oh, if/when you get an lcd, make sure it uses a dvi connection. the 15-pin analog vga connection is better for crt's.

ha. well, you asked so i went to tomshardware to show you their last review of 17" or 19" lcd's... and saw that.

it's actually kind of pricey for a 17", but it's probably one of the best you can get.. for gaming at least.

if/when you get it, re-post in here and let us know how it is. :)

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
