    just bought a samsung lcd monitor (17")

    the display is not as rich as its cathode ray counterpart .... the small pixel dots visibly vary the smoothness of the text and images alike

    Is it by any chance a 740N, if yes then does the 8ms response time satisfy you?

    You cannot response time. Response time is the amount of time that a pixel takes to change its colour. The faster it can change, the better. This comes into consideration while playing fast games where the pixels have to change very fast, without which there will be a ghosting effect (the previous image stays on screen while the new image comes in...)

    Also, CRTs have always been better than their LCD counterparts. Only now the more expensive one's give some competition.

    mmm.. are you running it at 1280x1024? Because, LCD monitors give optimal performance only at their native resolutions.

    I have a Samsung 710N. It was better than my CRT.

    Also, try calibrating your monitor. See if it helps.

    I am using Samsung 713N
    1280x1024 - 75 Hz (This mode is not listed in supported modes, but it works fine)

    For other colour details, better work with graphics card settings.

    i had studied that lcds are not as good as the crts ...... but welll now looking at my table which almost empty after replacing that big 1 feels good .... but i guess il get the crt back .... coz im not happy with this 1

    1 of the biggest drawbacks is that black is not pure black ....

    I'm surprised you feel that way. I replaced my CRT with an LCD not too long back and I'm never going back to CRT's again.

    I'm looking at your avatar right now in a LCD and I can't make out any pixels.
