That seems to be the way things are going these days - people want stuff to be cheap and convenient - nobody cares about quality any more.
It's like music has gone from vinyl to CD to mp3 - getting progressively worse in quality.

However, just because CRT is no longer fashionable, doesn't mean you can't still find them easily enough. Just type "CRT monitor" into google shopping, and you'll have plenty to choose from.

Even a fairly cheap CRT will beat just about any flatpanel monitor on color reproduction, and that's all you really need for pixelart - high resolutions, refresh rates etc, are pointless.
Having said that, since CRT is now mostly used by professionals rather than consumers, there are still a lot of very high end models available.

I have a Dell monitor, it's 22inch non HD, so it's not as nice as Adams, but it's a nice crisp display and the colours are decent. I think Dell monitors in general are very good and used by a lot of professional artists.

Of course you could always go one step further if you don't mind spending $3499...

I use an Hp w1907 and aside from scratching it when I was moving, it's never given me any problem. It also matches everything on my desk, so thats always a plus.

Haha, yeah I was joking about that, overkill even for an artist.

I'm actually tempted to buy another monitor now. 2 monitors = win.

Well I have just fixed my Acer AL1916W monitor, and it is a very clear monitor (i would say its beats my Samsung T220 for its crispness) to give its credit although it does have an warm tone, which I kind of like to be honest.

The problem was some soldering on a surface mount ribbon connector that goes from motherboard to the screen connector board. All I have done is resolder this connector (electronics is my hobby and profession) and touch wood its working nicely. The soldering was sub par around these connectors. Reading up a lot of people have had similar problems with colour problems, and I guess they are all due to sub par soldering.

I do not advise anyone else does what I have done - and I am not responsible if you get zapped

Dual screen goodness now

I also agree with Sketchy, I still use Vinyl a lot. I simply can not stand MP3 - syllabance on symbols drives me mad.
