Yeah, I'm spoiled after using it, I can't get used to the smaller monitors now. I love being able to have several windows open with room to spare. And no scrolling!!!!

I do all my work on a laptop. This way I’m not cooped up in a back room in my apartment and my wife and I do not get in each other’s way.

Is there anything that I should be aware of relative to using a standard monitor? The images appear very sharp and clear, but should I expect any changes when i print?

Chalk up another trinitron/shadow mask monitor... 21" Sony. Like other folks, took a little while to get used to the two faint gray lines (keep trying to "clone" them away, and they wouldn't ) ...

...but haven't noticed them in many months.

Unexpected result: My cat REALLY likes to snooze on top of the monitor while I'm working. I frequently have to move her (overhanging) head or paws in order to point to PS's menus. One more reason to learn more keyboard shortcuts, I guess!

LOL it's funny how cats seem to love monitors. I don't have any pets but when I've been at friend's houses their cats always seem to be hanging around (or on top of the monitors. maybe its the heat the monitor gives off?? it sure can get annoying when you're trying to wokr and you have a big fluffy cat in front of your face trying to rub against the monitor

Can't find anything in my book of words about what's inside the tube, but it's a 17" LG Flatron. Great thing about a flat screen is that you can't get reflections back to your eye.

Can't see Dave's grey stripes either

About kitties: could cause your monitor to overheat if they sleep on top of it. Be wary in summer. One of mine is worse: she loves using my printer as a rubbing post. Cat hairs are really bad for Epsons

My cats never sleep on my monitor -- it's less than an inch deep.

LCD, of course. To my less than expert eyes, the image quality is as good as my previous CRT monitors, except perhaps for my 1986 Sony Trinitron.

Found this on the Web about the LG Flatron:
Quote:
The 795FT is the only monitor here to use a Flat Tension Mask tube - LG's own Flatron. Essentially, it's a combination of aperture-grille and shadow-mask technology, which produces a completely flat, bright screen, but without the damping wires associated with aperture-grille CRTs.
so maybe I don't have such a bad monitor

I was interested in this too so I did a search on google for it.
from the LG site:
Quote:
Slot Mask
Also called aperture grille. Serves the same function as the shadow mask except that the slot
mask is made up of vertical wires stretched behind the screen. This mask technology
enables more light to filter through the mask, therefore giving the screen a brighter image.
here's a link to a section on LG's site on Flatron technology:
