Just curious what is thebiggest CRT type monitor available?? Do they make anything over 20in?? I have plenty of room so an LCD is kind of a waste of money for me. Im looking to replace the television in my bedroom with a large comuter monitor and just run the cable, dvd, pc all through one moniotr instead of haveing a tv and computer monitor in the same room. But Ineed something at least 24in which is the size of my current television.
thanks

For CRT PC monitors you'd be hard pressed to find good ones above 21" these days. Not that they went much higher than that in the past anyways.

Sony FW-900 has a 24in CRT tube (22.5in viewable) and can display up to 1200 vertical pixel at an 85Hz refresh rate. (in other words, it can display 1600x1200 and 1920x1200 @ 85Hz)

You can't buy it new anyway, so its retail price is irrelevant now. You can get used ones for very cheap on ebay.
