Four of five years ago, over a short period of time I went from looking 
at CRT's all day long to not looking at them at all.  (I replaced a CRT 
TV with DLP, and CRT computer monitors with LCD.)  A few months later, I 
realized that my eyes were no longer tired at the end of the day as they 
had always been in the past.  For me it was a big difference, and for 
that reason alone, i would sacrifice a little bit of color accuracy for 
my everyday tasks (none of which are very sensitive to color accuracy) 
to use an LCD instead of a CRT.
