The F-15 is one of the most affordable LCD solutions available locally. The price range ($350-$400) is still high enough to get you a high-end CRT monitor, though. One thing is for sure, though. AG Neovo really did a fabulous job on the F-15. It may be their value model but it is well built and works quite fine.
LCD Monitors still hold a bit of premium as the price difference with CRTs is still very much large. The question you should ask yourself though is, how important is my desk space? To add to that, how important are my eyes to me? Without the constant flicker on CRTs, the F-15 allows you to work longer without straining your eyes. The light weight and small frame also makes the F-15 ideal for lugging around on LAN parties. Surely, you wouldn't want to bring a 17" CRT Monitor around every time you and your mates decide to frag some helpless kiddies. Price aside, there is absolutely no reason to go CRT over LCD, in my opinion. The technology is here and the time is ripe. The question is, when will you shift over?
