Just picked up a nice LDC monitor

From Newegg.com. 23" for $219 delivered! It is BIG. Widescreen model with 1080p support and HDMI in.

I still have my old Sony/Dell trinitron 20" CRT. Will dread getting rid of it. Must weigh 70 lbs.

Played a computer game and got motion sickness. Stupid inner ear.

Whatever you do, don't dump the old monitor in the trash.

You mean LCD (liquid crystal display), not LDC. They are very nice.

LCD computer monitors keep going down in price, while HDTV LCD monitors stay around the same price......must be price collusion.........
