" Well, there are still problems with flat panels:
"     - they look like absolute crap at anything other than native
"       resolution.
"     - 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.

likewise in spades, but right now -any- price and non-native res
really kill them for me.  i'm running at 1152x900 - any lcd do that?
and i want to move to 1600x1280, just as soon as i find a sony g200 i
can afford.  anyone got one they don't want?
