CRT is better quality but TFT uses up less space

3 CRT's (21", 19", 17") and 2 TFT's (19", 17")

The 2 19" monitors are on a single PC (my main one) which is nice

(I got the TFT's free btw. - you just need to know the right people in the industry )

<edit> Oops almost forgot... another 3 TFT's on our laptops </edit>

I think for general PC use a TFT is great
But for accurate colour reproduction for photography or design CRT is still the best choice

I would agree to that, however online content should really be done on both nowadays (and moreso on TFT very shortly) to make sure that it is acceptable on both mediums.

Oh dear, I'm afraid I'm another with multiple monitors - and I'd agree with you, Graeme, regarding gfx.
