B&A: Computer Monitors (17" CRT to 20" Wide)

Well, I gave myself an early Christmas present this year - especially with ebay running a 10% coupon (expires tomorrow 11/30). Anyway, it's a Dell 2005FPW 20.1" Widescreen LCD monitor. It's a very cool monitor and saves a lot of space on my small little desk. Take a peek (sorry for the bad pictures).

definately sexy.

what are you doing with the old crt now? once i got a new lcd, i used the old one for dual monitor support. once you have more than 1 screen, you can never go back.
 






I'd hit it. Looks nice!

The old CRT will be put back in its box and will wait for its day again. Once I get my other computer at my girlfriends place -- the flat monitor will go there and the CRT will be back with this computer.

Very nice.. I would go dual monitor setup.. Once you do, you'll never want to go back.

That would be cool -- but as you can see... no room for 2 monitors.

Get a bigger desk or put the desktop on the ground or somewhere else.
 






Awesome! I myself just got a new setup at home, I got a deal at Comp USA I could NOT pass up.
I got a Samsung 19" LCD for $325 and a new HP desktop, 3 GHZ, 1 G Ram, DVD burner, 250 M HD, etc etc $900

After rebates the whole deal was under $1000

Once you have flat screen you will NEVER go back. I can't stand those round monitors anymore! hahaha

hes got the idea!

i bought a whole other desk to put next to my current one. you desperately need the room for 4 monitors and a laptop. but also, 3 of those are damn crt's :\

well at least my room stays warm during winter..
 












at school we have 17" CRT monitors and everything look so odd. Many of the pages I look at are all squeeze together.

This is how I rock the 17s..... This website on one and Winter XGames on the other.

Cool set up, but I promise you - you'll be amazed by the room you'll save by going to a flat panel. It's amazing! :thumbsup:
