These monitors were until recently the standard in computer monitors. Nowadays most people use TFT/LCD displays because they are less bulky and use less energy. There are however still some advantages in buying a CRT monitor, especially so if you\'re looking for a 19" or bigger model. You won\'t be able to lift them easily, but they are often much more affordable and capable of displaying higher resolutions. Make sure you buy a model that has a refresh rate of at least 70 Hz at the desired viewing resolution, or you will get tired eyes after prolonged usage.

The official marketing text of Sony Multiscan G500 21"CRT.24 80Hz TCO99 as supplied by the manufacturer
The Multiscan G500 21" (19.8" viewable) display is ideal for the demanding corporate professional who requires extra screen space and exceptional image performance, without sacrificing value or reliability. The CPD-G500's spacious screen is perfect for everything from spreadsheets to finely detailed graphic presentations.

The virtually flat, high-resolution FD Trinitron® CRT — with a 0.24 mm aperture grille pitch— delivers superior image clarity and truer, brighter colours. And, with Sony’s HiDensity™ Electron Gun with Enhanced Elliptical Correction System™ technology, the display's clarity and colour are consistent from corner to corner.

To provide superior contrast and greyscale performance, the CPD-G500 screen features a high-contrast black coating. This coating, coupled with the display’s vertically flat screen, also helps cut glare and washout caused by ambient light. And that reduces eyestrain.

The analysis of people and their specific physical attributes, from which the basis of a streamlined shape for products is determined. It has an influence on safety and efficiency of work. The more focused meaning of ergonomics expresses unproblematic and easy handling of equipment by a user in the workplace. It is obvious that a good monitor must be equipped with a foot that enables rotation and tilting. It is important to be able to shift a monitor with one hand. Lack of flickering, low radiation and harmful effects on the environment are important features of a monitor in respect of ergonomics.
