    nephilim replied in a post about that question & i think he said there was no problem with the lcd. if buying from a computer store see if can put 2 identical computers side by side with a lcd & crt monitors playing the same game or whatever. let your eyes see the difference as your the 1 who is going to use/see it

    Pixel Pitch: 0.294 19" LCD

    Pixel Pitch: 0.270 21.3" LCD

    Pixel Pitch: 0.264 17" LCD

    (Lower is better of course.)

    Keep these in mind for clarity along with your ms rates. You will find when you shop that almost every 19" will have .294PP, as well as every 17" LCD will have .264PP as well as every 21.3" will have .270 PP.

    If you are used to a quality CRT, it will be an adjustment to go to the LCD but will be worth it in the end, especially on your eyes.
