I've been using these monitors for color-critical photographic work since 2002. As the flat-screen monitors (LCD or whatever they are), become the standard, these CRTs are being phased out. The AccuSync 120 is very accurate, sturdy, large and reliable with or without color management pucks. I've noticed a "dumbing down" of color accuracy in the graphic arts industry and the proliferation of LCD/flatscreens play a big part in it. Yes, the environmental impact of CRT monitors is undesirable (tubes are coated with lead-based materials). But that's the only bad part I'm considering (okay, maybe desk space too!) I have not yet used the one I just purchased because my current Accsync 120 is still alive and kicking. I can tell that the moire is building up, but that can be adjusted in the menu for the monitor. But it is starting to get the "shakes" every once in awhile. While the cost of the Accusync 120 is more affordable than ever, I recommend serious color professionals stock up. Flatscreen monitors will probably catch up to CRT, but it ain't there yet. From screen "burns" to weird angles and an overly contrasty screen, I find the flatscreens too risky for accurate color at this time.
