Well it’s only going to help us users if it forces down prices on the higher end panels like I wish I had.
I loved my 21" CRT monitor but it weighed a ton and was a power hog so I upgraded to a 19" wide Acer LCD. Text looks great and games are tolerable but I miss the ink blacks and any resolution you’d like of my CRT display.

Dell should just start manufacturing their own low priced LCD panels and take their business away.

Do you also miss the radiation and light reflection? I know I don’t.

I agree with redk9258. If American business think that the cost of LCDs are to pricey wouldn’t it be a good opportunity to bringing LCD manufacturing back to the USA and take a piece of their lucrative pie? It seems to me that the norm for business in the USA is to always sue to force an outcome rather than be creative and use it to their advantage. This holds true for other businesses as well. Are you listening RIAA & MPAA?

If Dell win will they pass the money back to the people who actually paid more than they should have, or will they just stick it in the bank and say thanks.

Well I don’t think the radiation from a CRT monitor or TV is really a concern. I used to repair them for a money making hobby and was exposed to plenty of open and running TV’s while trying to adjust and repair them. Most had the X ray warning on the high voltage cage area and that was always shielded with some tin to protect folks.
I doubt just sitting in front of one would ever give anyone problems. One of my monitors had the older RGB color phosphor tube, the last one had a Sony trinitron tube in it and was pretty glossy but the reflections never bothered me.
The friend I gave it to loves it as he was broke and had a crappy monitor and mine was a pro model Iiyama, he loves gaming on it, so did I.
The text just was never as sharp as a good LCD at native resolution and I mostly am looking at text and forums and things like that all day any more rather then gaming a lot.
