SAN FRANCISCO (05/26/2000) - Flat-screen CRTs control nine spots on the chart this month. Of the four newcomers, Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd.'s SyncMaster 700NF ascends the highest, thanks to its bright colors and reasonable price.
Sony Corp.'s CPD-G200 and Mitsubishi's Diamond Plus 73 also render bold graphics. The AOC7Glr from EPI carries a $199 price--the lowest we've seen for a 17-incher. Models from Optiquest and Panasonic fell short. Next month we look at 19-inchers.
