    Proview is junk. Never seen one last more than 15 months... Would you really want a monitor that sells for $80.

    what do you mean strike three. no it wasn't a crt its just that circuit city would always have crt monitors on sale and they would rotate the pricing on them but they don't do that anymore. i was looking and noticed they had a cheap lcd monitor and i didn't know it was a crummy one tho.

    I agree with you in that Circuit City logically rotates their sale pricing around their different brands and sizes of monitors. It does make sense that they would.

    I simply haven't seen an advertisement for a standalone CRT monitor for maybe two years.
    I received a 17" CRT monitor with a computer I purchased Memorial Day 2006, but after that, and certainly at present, even the $350.00 computer packages come with LCDs, albeit 17" crappy ones.

    ok that makes more sense. before i built the computer im using i had been looking for a monitor and they actually sold 3 different crt monitors about 3 or 4 months ago for less than 70$ and for about a week one was only 30$!

    Location, Location , Location.....!

    Here I'm thinking that because of our different geographic situations, that CC's stock situation is quite a bit different. I live in a very high retail volume area, (SE Pennsylvania), and here, CRTs are nonexistant. Retailers keep stock until they can sell it, and the thirty buck CRT jobbies are long, long gone.
