    17" LCD makes more sense to me .. get something like the Samsung 740N and u can play games very comfortably on it due the 8ms response time. and ya u will get a laser printer free with it too and not to mention about the good power savings in your monthly bill due to lesser power consumption of a tft. a 19"CRT will be a power hog. and one more benefit of a tft is it will be easier on ur eyes :)

    Viewsonic's support in India is extremely poor whereas Samsung has dedicated service centers in most of the cities/towns. Also in my opinion, VA712 isn't as good as Samsung 740N.. it wasn't as good as my 710N which I bought about an year ago either.

    Response Time plays an important part, but anything below 16 ms should be just fine for your needs. Samsung is the best bet for LCDs atleast in India.

    the vx724 retails at 18000 and the 3ms is gray to gray.
    the va712 retails at 14000 and has a 8ms tr/tf response time.
    i'am told, and i belive, viewsonic is a better brand. my experience with samsung has'nt been very good.
    HCL provides the support for viewsonic here.
    i guess iam going to go for the va712.
    thanks.
