Is the CRT reference monitor still the preferred (edit suite) standard?

How many of you have moved away from that technology?

CRT's are preferred and still in use in a lot of places, but you can't get replacements any more. We should soon be seeing a couple approaches. One is a rather expensive high quality LCD display, the other is to take consumer plasma displays and put a tweaking box ahead of them. The box gets set up via test patterns and a light measuring probe. The LCD is priced like a high end CRT monitor, the plasma and tweak combo a bunch less.
