Only a few of the LCDs really compare to CRTs in color. You have to spend more money on color accuracy rather than just screen area. So, pass on the Dell 30" and go for an NEC 2190UXi 21" . I did.

How does the Sony 34 HDTV CRT hold up to editing? I was thinking of buying this 190lb monster to monitor when I edit instead of using a lcd. I edit on Vegas software.
Online, circuirt city has it for $899.

Joe:

If you are planning to use a HDTV to use as a replacement for a CRT PC monitor....I would not want to work at 60Hhz refresh rate of ANY HDTV or PC CRT monitor at that rate.

If you are gonna use it as an external VIEW monitor of your Video...It would be OK especially For HD material but again having a big TV so close to you (next to your Timeline monitor) its not such a good idea either.

I used a 20" Sony triniton SD TV for a while but even the distance (3 feet) its too short for that screen size.

I switch to a 13" TV instead and everything looks better from that short distance .

40000:1 cotnrast ratio and 160% NTSC color

I have been checking for that 30inch 2560*1600 display, and have come across some of the that color technology stuff. Really interesting, lots of new technologies including scanning back lights, 90 and 100% color, RGB LED back-lit, super 4Mp panels of various sizes, that 40K:1 contrast ratio and 160% NTSC color mentioned above, and the 8Mp 56inch panel of course. This really does reduce the gap with CRT's (but most LCDs you currently buy are not as good as these upcoming technologies).

Pass on the Dell 30" in favor of the 2190UXi ??? Are you insane?

Brightness - Dell is 300cd/m2 NEC - 250cd/m2
Contrast: Dell - 1K:1 NEC - 500:1
Resolution: Dell 2560x1600 NEC - 1600x1200
Response: Dell - 12ms~16ms typical NEC - 20ms~24ms
Price: Dell - $1,280 if you play their coupon game NEC - $1,450 most places
Warranty: Dell - 3 years standard NEC - 1 year

Oh, and if you want even better specs than that Dell 30" (other than size resolution), their 24" model uses the gen-3 Samsung panel and is < $700.
