I beg to differ Mark, I have found the Phillips 109B5 to be a great
monitor.  Bought mine 2 years ago and it is still serving me well -
still the best CRT I've used yet.  I work with graphics a fair amount
and compared to the LCD on my (new) laptop the colour contrast /
clarity etc. is much better and colour representation is much more
accurate on the CRT.  To call this a bad monitor is definitely not

Of course this depends on what you compare it to and I haven't seen
the iiyama ones yet.
