I still have that behemoth Sony sitting on the floor in the room over, haven't turned it on in probably 10 to 12 years.

Not sure how I'm going to judge a CRT panel when I'm watching the videos on a flatscreen anyway. I have only skipped through the video, but are there any shots where they've got the CRT sitting right next to an LCD to at least try and show some of the difference?

I tried this a few years ago when my LCD was in for repairs.

It was BLURRY as hell. I did not like it and would rather a 540p LCD than a 1080p CRT

My NEC FP2141-SB is on its last legs .

The screen turns black when the background isn't a bright white screen. Don't know if it is an easy fix.

Been using a LCD screen for the past few weeks. Miss the CRT.

I've been getting more into CRTs for retro consoles. I currently have 4, of various sizes. I haven't gone down the retro crt computer monitor route yet (and don't really plan to). Also haven't gone down the RGB/PVM rabbit hole.

The Sony FW900 is a better gaming monitor than almost any flat panel. LCD is an inferior technology in many ways, particularly motion resolution, black level, and viewing angles. High refresh on CRT trumps pretty much everything else. LCDs are great for static images, web browsing, sort of stuff, but only when used at native resolution; CRTs don't have that limitation....
