Although I am a happy LaCie user (now) I have had 3 so called
"refurbished" units to replace a broken LaCie. I ultimately demanded a
brand new LaCie and got one. The rand new was perfect, the 3
"refurbished" units all had serious flaws.
Oh yes, LaCie does not use Sony tubes but Diamondtron (Mitsubitshi) tubes.
This might be interesting though :

- I prefer a dual monitor setup and bought two "reconditioned" Lacie Electron
Blue IV CRTs for $199 each (Reg $379). Not all monitors on Lacies clearance
corner are indeed reconditioned. Some are returned inventory which cannot be
sold as new. My monitors were brand new with a 90 day warranty. Right now on
their site, they have 19's available for 199 and 22's for $499. I've been
more than happy. BTW, I'm talking aboti Lacie's website.

Out of the hundreds of CRTs available out there I really don't know much
about most of 'em, however, I've read good things about the Sony G520P (or
whatever its equivalent is nowadays.)
