The thing about LCD monitors that's always troubled me is how dull and washed out images look on them. I currently use a CRT but I'm in the market for a new monitor and started looking at LCDs. After seeing how dull the graphics are I really don't want an LCD, especially since I use my pc mainly for graphics tasks like watching tv and movies. I know there are some new LCDs that have screens that don't look so dull like Sony's XBrite or whatever and these make graphics look much more vibrant. I was recently at a retail store where they had an XBrite monitor next to a regular LCD and the difference was like night and day, but these types of monitors also reflect so much light that's it's difficult to see the image on the monitor if a lamp or window is reflecting off the monitor. I saw this criticism voiced in a pc magazine review of LCD monitors recently so it's not just me that thinks this. You would think there would be some kind of middle ground between really dull LCD screens and the really bright but reflective ones. I'm surprised no one ever talks about this when comparing LCDs and CRTs, people always talk about refresh rate vs response time or native resolution.
