I'm still running a HP A7217A 24-inch wide screen CRT monitor,made in late March 2003.
(I bought it in May of 2007.)

10 years on(from when it was manufactured) and it's still working like new.

I love the image(also the video) quality and am amazed at my luck in finding this now-rare gem of a unique CRT monitor.

I don't think a LCD monitor of the same vintage (2003) would still be working in 2013.(Just my opinion..)

This will open me up to the LCD-loving CRT haters,but I don't really care.

I've had a CRT monitor that lasted maybe 4 years... And I believe my folks still have an old Dell laptop from 1996, the screen still works.

So... it's not that I'm a "LCD loving CRT hater". I'm just pointing out this post is kind of pointless.
