I'm thinking about making a jump to the new generation but when I look
closely at the specs for LCDs and Plasmas I've yet to find a model that
says that it really does a native 50Hz display for VGA or DVI. The
detailed spec sheets for every model that i've looked at all quote a
60Hz vertical refresh rate for the digital inputs. I'd love to be proved
wrong, but for now i'll be sticking to my SD CRT.
