Yes the flat LCD panel is expensive and has a high "cool" factor but if you are serious about the quality of the image, you will always go back to CRT type monitor. There are several flatscreen tube models out there now.
Before you buy, take the time to go and see the units up close and personal. Other than warranty, don't get too caught up in the specs; your own eyes are the best judge. Once you find the model that you want, go online and see if you can save any money buying online. Good luck
I can tell you where to get a 21" trinitron monitor (CRT with flat screen) for $125. They are refurbished with a 90 day warranty, but for that price it's hard to go wrong. It will make a big footprint on your desk but they look better than LCDs.
