"Not a true flat screen"3.0 starson by bobbydig
Pros: Good price; bright and crisp
Cons: Not really getting what you pay for
Summary: This monitor uses a thick magnifying glass that is housed in the case but sits in front of the actual CRT. The effect is that you can see that the CRT is either not 18 inches diagonal or not flat or both. I would guess that the actual CRT is really a 15-16 inch curved tube.Updated
I have used 21 inch sony and other manufacturers' 19 inch monitors and there is a big difference between a true flatscreen and this.
