My old 1280x1024 CRT died a week ago so I had to get a new monitor on short 

I went to Frys.  I don't remember seeing any CRTs, but I wasn't looking for 

They had ~30 LCDs on display.  The ones I was interested in were mostly 23 
inch 1920x1080.  That seemed to be a sweet spot.  (I think the smaller ones 
were sprinkled around next to PCs.  I didn't look much at them.  I could 
easily have missed another sweet spot.)

The 1080 comes from HDTV so I expect 1920x1080 will continue to be a sweet 

These are my opinions, not necessarily my employer's.  I hate spam.
