    It's a Samsung SynceMaster 997MB

    I want to sell it and put that money towards a new LCD, I'm moving and I don't have room for a 19in CRT. Anyway, I just want to know what I can sell it for. It's about a year and a half old. Cheapest online I've seen it go for is $217.

    I would be surprised if you got more than $100.

    Nice monitor, but I doubt you'll be able to sell a used CRT for much more than 50, maybe 75. Everyone wants LCD now, the demand for CRTs is very low :hs:

    I've got a 19" made by Princeton Graphics. Very good quality, will hold 1600x1200 at a high refresh rate.

    I'm giving it to my sons friend when he comes home from school at the end of the month because no one wants crt's anymore.

    still a market for CRT's, especially in the photography world, but it'll be hard to get more than $100 for it, as stated above

    This is much less of an issue now that most LCDs support true 24-bit color, instead of 18-bit dithered color. I've had no problems adjusting any LCD made in the past few years to have exactly the color balance I wanted -- to say nothing of the added clarity of having hardwired pixels and a DVI signal instead of hard-to-aim electron beams and a VGA signal.

    If that screen has 21" or more viewable area, I'd be willing to take it off the guy's hands, but I wouldn't pay for it. If I'm gonna pay for a screen, it's going to be an LCD.

    19" CRT = 60lbs.
    19" LCD = 7lbs.

    LCD wins on clarity, desktop footprint, weight, S&H costs, and pretty much everything else. It loses on shittiness, though.

    lots of places will do free shipping for a LCD.


    CRTs are fucking expensive to ship.

    Yep. I bought two of those new three or four years ago and they were only $300 each brand new. I probably wouldn't pay anything for them.
