Was trying to decide between the 900IFT and 900NF. I talked to Samsung and they said the IFTs are Shadow Mask and the NFs are Aperture Grille. The two wires never bothered me. Does anybody have an opinion on one vs. the other as far as picture quality goes?

Generally, shadow mask CRTs have sharper text, while aperture grille CRTs have better color display.

If the two wires don't bother you, I would go for the 900NF unless of course you are using the monitor only for text like word processing. The 900NF might run you $40 but the colors are better and it has a higher max resolution and refresh rate. I'm not really sure about picture quality but like Yucky said, text will be crisper on the 900IFT though that is not to say the 900NF's (or most AG's) text is bad.
