We just got a shipment of gorgeous 18″ LCD screens at work. They are fantastic, and much, much easier on the eyes than CRT screens. I was amazed. I have a dual-head graphics card so I stuck my new screen next to my old one, and the difference is huge. Although before I saw the new screen, I would have said the old one was excellent.
If you can swing it, get one, your eyes will thank you.
