Glad to be of assistance. Far as ‘Traditional Monitor’ goes, these days that should be called a ‘Stand Alone Monitor’ like the old CRT’s you mentioned. Now that they make pro LCD monitors they are a viable option. But again, they ain’t cheap either!
If you just can’t bring yourself to fork over the cash for a pro monitor, a good consumer LCD will hold you. Look at Sony, LG, Panasonic and Toshiba for monitors with decent if not good color accuracy in the 15″ to 22″ size range. If you get anything bigger then it gets to be a PIA lugging it around and be harder to keep it from getting damaged during transport.
