Chances are the CRT is actually a lower res than the LCD so the picture may be softer but you'll get better black levels and shadow detail with the CRT. What TV and what monitor are you looking at. More importantly is this a computer monitor? If it is then it's 1920x1200 and may stretch the image.

I'd go for the monitor. It's more versatile and I heard those Samsung TVs were problematic.

You might want to read up a little more on those Samsungs.

Alright whatever you do DO NOT buy a Samsung Slimfit, I have never heard of a person getting a Slimfit home and it being anything but problematic. They have edge focus issues, messed up geometry, and overall just don't produce a picture worth having a bulky CRT for.

If you're going to get a 1920x1200 monitor make sure it can play 1080p material with black bars at the top and bottom or else the image will get stretched and will most likely annoy the hell out of you.
