I just got a samsung 17" LCD. I must say that it is the best looking LCD I have ever seen! It is far superior to my trinitron CRT... AND much easier on the eyes. I heartily recommend this monitor to anyone looking for an LCD at a reasonable, albeit highish (as compared to an equivalent CRT) price. I thought CRT's were the kings of clarity, not so, the screen is bright and easily visible from off angle viewpoints. It also has a font smoothing feature that makes the little "jaggies" in system fonts go away!! For internet browsing, especially a forum like this the overall effect of the smoothing is very pleasant. It also gets much brighter than my CRT without washing out... It simply outperforms a CRT in all aspects. I can finally run at 1280x1024 without going blind from squinting!! The only downside is, as with good headphones, I am now going to be able to spend even more time in front of my comuter.
