I just sold my 19" trinitron for $210 (US). The aperture grill lines are commonly unsettling, although they didn't bother me in the 1+ year I had it.
Upgraded to a Cornerstone 21/81 - and while this is an obsolete monitor (according to Cornerstone), it has excellent dot pitch (.22) & very good refresh. Besides, the price was great on UBID.
I suggest a .22 to .25, max 1600 X 1200 resolution for under $250 (US).
Usee the money you sav for a video card upgrade or have a party.
