I went and bought a Hyundai ImageQuest L17T 17" TFT display. It's beautiful! Full 17" of display space (my 17" CRT display had less than 16" of actual display), less than 2" thick, weights less than five kilos. In addition of crisp, non-flicking display it features a TV adapter so I can use it to watch TV too. There's simply no turning back - how can I use a CRT display after this beauty?

One funny thing: turned out the monitor is actually too light. Johanna's old computer table has three legs, two in front and one in back. Earlier the weight of the monitor was enough to keep the table somewhat stable, but now even a slight leaning on the front of the table caused the table to tilt. I solved the problem by placing some heavy-weight computer books behind the monitor in the back corner of the table. Now it's stable as ever and I can also reach my Programming Perl easier!

Forgot one more thing, does it got VESA mounting?

Can you raise/lower it with standard foot?

I'm not much of a computer gamer, so can't really say. I tried Half-Life and it looked good, though. It has a rather fast response time (I think it was 20 ms, which should be enough).

With the standard foot it's only possible to tilt the display.
