long phosphore monitors?

        Some one on the Ami-Hard list had mentioned long phosphor monitors, and
I was wondering what they were used for... i.e. what benifits do you get from
them verses the standard 1084S and VGA monitors?

They make use of the interlaced modes more practical for text or graphics,
since the long-persistance tends to average out the interlace flicker.

They  can replace a flicker fixer - if the phosphor lights long enough
-  for  applications that do not change the display fast.  For example
an editor only needs slow reaction to changes on the screen and can be
used with such a monitor.

Playback  of  animations  and  most  games are impossible because they
change  the  display very fast and the phosphor will show the old dis-
play for some time after a change.
