    I don't use it. Firstly, because I don't have cash to buy it now (I've already gone out of money because I have bought my finepix s5000 :p) and I don't see a need to buy a lcd. But my friends say that you have to got used to new image of lcd. It is completely different.

    I encourage you to read something there:

    or look for the technology of creating LCD monitors because this is the main dofference between LCD and CRT monitors. Sorry I can't exactly explain your question :p

    I used to have one but I sold it just a year after getting it, reason being that the contrast is too high. I sold it on ebay for almost half the price I bought it with, and still have change for a bigger better CRT one.

    I have a LCD at work and CRT at home. I view the same post at both work and home. Prefer LCD less glare. A CRT is similar to grossly paper and LCD matte.

    lcd monitors for desktops do that too? :scratch:

    i thought it was only laptop monitors. my laptop is really bad about that... the part of the screen directly in front of me has pretty accurate color/quality/etc., but the top and bottom are often too bright or dark because they're not directly aimed at my eyes... so basically the laptop can't be 100% quality across 100% of the screen area.
    and you're telling me desktop lcd's are the same? :?

    No, I wouldn't say it varies much from top to bottom while you're sitting here, but if you're standing up or off to the side, or it's just tilted too far, then it gets dark and funky.

    Check the LCD's options, most have a anti-aliasing feature you can turn on or off.
