I couldn't stand those new tech monitors called lcd/led as well Led are much better than lcds but good crts are better than them. But if you buy good expensive tv with good blacks and size and all they may be as good as crts (i've bought one with new moth eye stuff which kills reflections and my eyes loves it. Black levels are awesome as well).
42" plasma, but i might have to break out the old 19" desktop monitor if i have the same issues w/ the release that i did with the beta. basically i couldn't get the beta to play in full screen on the plasma, no matter how i tried to configure the tv/video card, so i had to play in windowed mode and stretch it. we'll see if it changes once they optimize and finalize, plenty of other games play fullscreen fine on it.
