Hi Ray,

Should you be looking to purchase your monitors straightaway I'm not sure how useful this information will be to you but I thought I would reply anyway.

A colleague (Ben Motz) and I are currently following up on the work of Wiens et al. (2004) and Wang & Nikolic (2011) to address your concern, which we share, about the decline of CRT production and the Samsung 2233RZ. We are currently testing a variety of 120Hz LCDs/LEDs (Viewsonic, Acer, Samsung etc), 60Hz LCDs and older CRTs for their suitability in vision research. The only concrete result I can provide you with at the moment is that the Viewsonic V3D245 ( http://www.viewsonic.com/products/v3d245.htm ) really does produce 120Hz reliably and appears to produce little motion blur. If you are in no rush, in the near future we should be able to provide you with more detail on a variety of monitors. 

Good luck finding a suitable monitor!
Scott

> RETINA CILIOPATHIES: From Genes to Mechanisms and Treatment
> 
> 4-5 May 2012, Fort Lauderdale, Florida, USA
> 
> http://www.visionresearch-conference.elsevier.com
> 
> Two-day satellite meeting prior to ARVO 2012
> 
> The preARVO 2012 satellite meeting will review the latest developments in retina ciliopathies including retinitis pigmentosa, Leber congenital amaurosis, and Usher/Bardet-Biedl syndromes. We will focus on genes involved in intraflagellar transport, photoreceptor outer segment morphogenesis, molecular motors and novel animal models that closely mimic human ciliopathies. Main emphasis is on human/mouse genetics, next generation DNA sequencing, proteomics, biochemistry, and cell biology.
