LCD Flat Panel vs. Flat Screen CRT

What to buy... what to buy...

You tell me your opinon!

Samsung 712n vs. Samsung 793mb

Thus far.. price is the biggest factor...

$120 for a 17" Samsung Flat Screen

or

$405 for a 17" Samsung Flat Panel

There are plenty of pros and cons to each.

CRT pros:

Resolutions up to 1600x1200

very little $$$

Response time is no issue at all

CRT cons:

HUGE and bulky

Adds to heat production in the room

17" is really only 16" of viewable space

1 year manufacturer warranty

LCD pros:

Small footprint... very little space taken up.

Very little amount of heat produced

Easier on the eyes

17" means 17" of veiwable space

3 year manufacturer warranty

LCD cons:

Max resolution of 1280x1024

High $$$

Fragile screen
