I voted LCD, because it's smaller and generates less heat, and is easier when lugging it to shows.....

Oddly though I perfer a CRT when watching TV.

Cheers.

Phill.

LCD purely for size and luggability reasons.

There was no way three CRTs would have fitted in the back of Linkovitch's Rover (barge) on the way to AC2011 last month.  We got away with one of them and two LCD monitors :)

Got to be CRT.

Two reasons:

1) CRT pixel blur makes games display as they were originally designed (especially C64 games)

2) Gotta love a bit of pixel glow :)
