    I'm looking for a new 19" CRT monitor folks and I'd prefer not to spend more than $200 (US) if possible.

    I picked up the Samsung SyncMaster 955df today, but I'm not happy with it so it's going back to the store tomorrow. I plan to research some monitors myself, but I'd like to get some suggestions first.

    thanks guys
    :cheers:

    take a look at the Viewsonic G95+ (i think) or the Professional series; the Pro might be a tad too expensive but they are very nice if you are after sharpness & brightness etc.

    It can be a bit tricky to find any real good 19" on that budget, many of them crt's within the 200 range haven't the most clear image/color separation etc. Try and see iy you can stretch a bit higher since the performance is way higher in the 250-300 range. :2cents:

    I just got myself an Syncmaster 959NF Diamondtron which can do

    1280x1024 - 100Hz
    1600x1200 - 85Hz

    I'm very pleased with it so far, the color separation etc is great!

    unfortunately I'm beginning to realise that :( I think I'm just going to have to stick with my viewsonic 17" until I can better afford a larger quality monitor. I appreciate the replies :thumb:

    What didn't you like about the DF?

    refresh rates, supported resolutions, this strange ghosting/hazy crap on the desktop (very noticable with a black background), this very strange distortion (wavy lines, but that doesn't describe it well), the colors were off despite any tweaking, ect...

    just about everything I don't want in a monitor aside from physical malfunctions

    Wow, I think you must have gotten one that was dying... I don't have any DF's but I have friends who do and are very picky quality wise...

    I have a 1200NF, (the most expensive line samsung makes) and it is absolutely gorgeous. 1920 X 1440 @ 79 Hz!!

    I can't say about the DF's in general but I have found that cheap 'flat' CRT's of other brands are often very poor.

    My Moms had a 753DF for two years now and it's never had a falter yet

    I'm just going to stick with my 17" for now and put the money towards something else. I wanted a 19" to complement my new 9800 pro ( :D ) that I was able to get by a freak accident. But it still looks damn fine on my 17", so I'm jut not going to worry about it right now.

    Thanks :)
