Pros: nice monitor. excellent res too. i can hit 2048x1536 on my monitor. looks tiny on tex though. so i got it at 1600x1200

Cons: not really a con for this. but my display gave britness probs were it would get so bright it turned the tube off. fixed it though

Other Thoughts: the monitor i have is a dell p1110 which is really a rebranded sony g550 21" .24mm. also it is flat tube and heavy as heck. about killed my toe after accidently droping it (caught it though.)

5 out of 5 eggsBest display I've ever used

Pros: Enormous screen but not taller that the so called 19" that it replaced. Excellent color rendition, includes a mode called "super bright" with movie and still image selections that may even be too bright (I find anything over 30% brightness overpowering in a dark room). The full range of controls are accessible from monitor front buttons. With an 8800GTX it is able to access resolutions of 2048x1536@85Hz (and higher with decreased refresh). Lastly, is the exceedingly convenient 4-way USB hub that inter operates with full speed usb devices.

Cons: This CRT is very heavy so be cautious lifting it (It is quite a challenge to carry it up a flight of stairs). The screen operated monitor is difficult to use because button labels are not especially legible. This is easily corrected with a with a Silver Sharpie pen (from better hardware merchants) but it should not be necessary. Some quality time adjusting the color/geometry is necessary to get the best presentation - it is helpful to RTF(ine)M. Unsurprisingly, VERY strong magnetic fields will perturb the color balance of this and any CRT. Pragmatically, this would be a problem only if the only if the monitor is very close (within two feet) to a sizable sub-woofer such a Bag-End S21E-C (a large sub may need to be moved). Lastly, you need a video card with the moxie, something from the nVidia 8800 family will work (no doubt ATI has offerings that are up to the calling). Of course it does use more power than an LCD but it does not get very warm.

Other Thoughts: I admit to being a ambivalent towards getting yet another CRT. I do have considerable experience with high quality LCD's and you can me a Luddite if you wish, but IMO, the best CRTs (such as this one) are still unsurpassed for anything with motion (like movies and games). This monitor is extremely cruel to inferior DVD's and can exposes flaws in BluRay disks. Getting content worthy of this monitor may be challenging. There are not that many games able to use the 2048x1536@85Hz sweet spot. However even at a mere 1600x1200@85Hz, Prey is spectacular (after I moved the sub:)

5 out of 5 eggssuper CRT

Pros: - 2 inputs with front-panel input selector; automatic selection if only one input is active
- usb ports
- 2048x1536
- extensive geometry adjustments

Cons: etched front-panel buttons are unreadable in low light; highest resolution with standard-size fonts may require dropping refresh a bit to improve clarity; have some geometry issues at top of screen after about 3 years; price has gone up about $200 since i bought it; few KVM switches can deal with the resolution & refresh, but the dual inputs almost negate this issue.

Other Thoughts: i love this monitor - and would have loved it even without the dual inputs & the USB (neither of which, oddly enough, was mentioned in ANY of the literature when i purchased it - a nice surprise, as i was able to retire the monitor on my server and use this one for it AND my dev box). 2048x1536 makes LCD panel resolutions laughable.

1 out of 5 eggsGreat Monitor With An Achilles Heel

Pros: This was my fourth time buying a NEC/Mitsubishi monitor. It produces a great picture - just what you would want in 22" (really 21") CRT. Great for everything from games to spreadsheets - provided you can turn it on.

Cons: Within two months, the power button went bad. I couldn't turn it on. NEC honored the warranty without any hassle; they paid for the shipping both ways. The case was not placed on the return correctly, so I had to send it back a second time. Now, over a year later, the power button is broken again, sans warranty. My CRT has become an expensive paperweight.

Other Thoughts: This is my last NEC/Mitsubishi monitor, and my last CRT. Any CRT with this size screen is just too difficult and expensive to keep shipping back and forth for the same problem.

5 out of 5 eggsBetter than any LCD

Pros: Large size, small aperture grille. for gaming and for movies, viewing photography performance is first rate. Difficult to get as it is out of production, and highly sought after by graphic arts professionals. Will be gone soon. Get it if you can afford it!!!

Cons: Geometry can be time consuming to get right. Be sure to get NaviSet software, and set resolution and freq (Minimum 1600x1200 85Khz) before you tweek the geometry and other settings. Pricey by the inch....

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Monitor

Pros: It is huge, Display rez, and is just beautiful.

Cons: IT IS FRIGGIN HUGE!!!!!!!(like 80 lbs) so you better put on a hernia belt to lift this thing.

Other Thoughts: I got mine as a refurbished one for well less than what a new one costs (like 6 hundred bucks), but it was slightly used in an office and checked grade-A.

5 out of 5 eggsThe Best All-around Display

Pros: I've had this monitor for a little more than two years and have enjoyed its excellent attributes since then. It has beautiful, accurate color rendering, smooth and neutral grayscale (and RGB & CMY) at 6500K color temp. (5000K is beautiful as well). Deep blacks go along with that without crushing the bottom end of the grayscale. A high quality high-voltage power supply ensures the raster does not expand/contract with variations in brightness nor does the black level shift.

Insanely high 140 kHz horizontal scan rate and 420 MHz pixel clock limits enable high-resolutions & refresh rates and clarity.

Gamers should remember that the refresh rate is also the maximum frame rate when vsync is on. Higher refresh rates mean smoother movement in all applications. I can easily tell the difference between 60Hz, 75Hz and 100Hz; tops out at 2048x1536@87Hz & 1600 or 1920x1200@110Hz. 1800x 1350 is comfortable for the desktop. 2560x1600@60Hz can be accepted from dual-link DVI cards.

Cons: Vertical shimmering may occur temporarily on parts of the screen due to the energy from the electron beam colliding onto the aperture grille. The two stabilizer wires cancel out this phenomenon most of the time. This display needs a half-hour warm-up for the black level to reach optimum brightness since it's a little too low when first turned on. And this monitor is heavy so make sure the desk can properly support it.

Other Thoughts: If there are any issues with focus or convergence, there is a free downloadable service manual that can be found with a little searching and it's superbly written, describing proper adjustment of all aspects of this monitor. This display can also attain ruler-straight geometry on the sides. Running at high horizontal scan rates and pixel clocks require good DAC and filter quality from the video card and also try to avoid DVI to D-Sub converters with CRTs.

In summary, based on the positive qualities written above, I firmly believe this Mitsubishi CRT is the most well-rounded display on the market. Its outstanding color qualites combined with high resolution and refresh rate capabilities add up to an irresistible package.
