    He asked for an "Aperture Grille" ! Out of the three suggested, from what I know, only Viewsonic is "Aperture Grille" and others are "Shadow Mask"
    Pl correct me if I am wrong.

    Aperture Grille CRTs generally cost more than other technologies like Shadow Mask. You may choose Sony (inventors of Aperture Grille?) or Viewsonic. Sony will be costlier. I think you should be able to find one well within 8000/-

    not all wrong, but not all right....

    anyhow, AFAIK, all samsung monitors are "Shadow Mask"

    but not all Viewsonics are "Aperture Grille", the monitors i know for sure which are "Aperture Grille" is
    Sony's Trinitron and
    ViewSonic's SonicTron

    About the availability i dont know...

    Aperture Grille traditionally produces crispier images than "Shadow Mask" but let me tell u there will be some 1,2 horizontal lines in an Aperture Grille monitor which are unavoidable whatever brand it might be, also with advancements in Shadow Mask tachnology the shadow mask monitors also produce almost equally good image... so i personally dont mind purchasing a shodow mask monitor, because to those who know those 2 horizontal lines can be disturbing....

    But then u get used to them, also in newer monitors these lines actually dont have much appearance..... so it's the coice...

    about the availability, i will let u know soon when i visit the market next... ..
    i visit very very frequently

    Aperture Grille is also said to be sensitive to physical shock but the ones that I had used (Sony only) survived transporting over long distances.

    The horizontal lines mentioned by Kniwor are of course there but I have in fact never seen them really in monitors or TVs.

    And as he said, nowadays there are very good shadow mask tubes while in the past there was none to rival the Aperture Grille ones.
