Well, there are still problems with flat panels:

    - they look like absolute crap at anything other than native
    - even the fast ones are still slower than a CRT
    - to get one with the same color quality and resolution as
      my CRT, I have to pay a bit over $700
    - damage to pixels is glaringly obvious
    - most flat panel screens are plastic, and thus fragile and harder
      to clean (Princeton makes some with glass)
    - they look like crap when viewed indirectly

I could probably put up with a lot of those negatives, but not at
current prices.

The prices are falling rapidly, so hopefully they'll match my needs
before my CRT finishes dying.
