We actually discussed that and we felt its okay to assume some tech in the BMRF is ahead of whats available to the general public ;)

Also, the game doesn't take place in 1998. It was confirmed by Valve as well...

Doesn't make much sense for Half life not to take place in 1998. I remember the rooms in half life have Kind of a 90's atmosphere.

The closest reference you caan find regarding the date is summertime, 200X, so it's quite possible to assume that the takes place in 2009, when flatscreens are readily available.

Bingo. 2009 is the latest possible date HL1 could have occurred, and the most likely year as well. Just like how Half-Life 2 most likely took place in a ravaged 2029.

Considering they have holograms, teleporters, tau cannons and industrial robots I figure Black Mesa also managed to fit LCD screens in their budget. :P

I don't think so. BMRF incident is around 2001-2003 since all equipment is old-style. AND IF there slim LCD why all other monitors is CRT? But if you change all monitors to LCD, game will lost a bit of atmosphere, since in all the sources include HL2 is bulky CRTs from BM.
