I currently have a Cicero 19in @ 1600 x 1200 @ 60hz, probably ranks high in terms of crap.

Yeah, I have CRT on all my machines. I hated LCD for such a long time. It actually pissed me off going over to someone's house to work on a machine that had a "flat screen" as they called it. The thing would be some horrible no name brand of LCD with I swear an overinflated 300:1 contrast ratio. The stock windows XP background was totally washed out and you couldn't see the clouds in the sky.

... but they were so proud it was a "flat screen".

I would rather stare into the toliet than look on those things. LCDs for the past 2 years are pretty damn good though. I'll be dropping the hammer on a few pretty quick I think.
