    imo, lcd and plasma screens are not too appropriate for video editing, because they're not fast enough. not yet.
    if you want the lcd monitor for all-purpose computing, get one, but if you're seriously into video editing and want to have that monitor on a dedicated workstation, better buy a large crt.

    well i didn't say you can't use an lcd for viditing, i just expressed my opinion that you shouldn't.
    guess it doesn't matter and you can delete my post.

    I use dual LCD's and they are fine, however svhs you have a point because you do need to be conscious of the pixel response time to prevent ghosting. For video editing I wouldn't plump for anything over 16ms and mine are 12ms.

    One thing that should be noted is that colour reproduction on LCD's is not as accurate as CRT's although in all honesty I haven't yet found it to be a real problem personally.

    SVHS - i'm with you on most of your point - a proper decent CRT will have a better image quality than an average flat panel, but something with a 12ms or below response time should be ok (watch out for some with low response times though - the quality of the image isn't great on some of the cheaper products)

    I don't think you can use plasma - but like the guys have said, LCD is fine. I'd also reinforce the points about colour accuracy (LCD is notoriously poor on contrast ratio relative to CRT) and response times: the latest LCD monitors have 8ms response times, which is more than good enough. Beware buying cheap... Stick with a well-known name.
