Ya had a 19" Hitachi way back when but the sony's were amazing... Just too pricey. But going to lcd my eyes thanked me. I doubt they will reopen the crt factories and the few remaining vintage tubes will eventually burn out. Kinda impressed by the release of IPS 240hz 1ms screens recently. I dont think they are that far from the glory days of crt quality.

It's a little overly rosey... But it's true, aperture grille CRT's look stunning and can still out class an LCD's in some ways... But I'd be hard pressed to go back. Even to a legendary Sony Fw900.

I picked up a Craigslist 30" Sony WEGA widescreen CRT years ago for my home theater. Video picture quality is amazing. Desktop not so great as it's native 1080i and quite fuzzy up close. It also weights 150lbs which makes lifting it off the floor a challenge as your knees and the TV can't occupy the same physical space.

Imagine how far along CRT tech would be if it never died.

Hell, plasma screens still look damned nice vs. all but the priciest modern LCD/OLED panels.

Plasma died because of the inherit issues with ghosting and burn in.

If you were a gamer you didn't use plasma anyway, because plasma sucked for gaming. Great for movies though.

Input lag ruins most serious gaming on TVs in general. But most LCD TVs had similar input lag on-top of terrible motion resolution. So it was kinda pick your poison for plasma vs LCD.

It's funny, every display tech is still a pick n choose which short coming you can live with

Dunno if gamers were a significant reason behind the death of plasma. What I heard from industry people was that the technology was not able to easily/economically move to 4K production. Also, I gather that margins were higher for LCD sales, plus LCD panels were generally lighter and brighter in stores. For movies and a more natural image, along with wide viewing angles, plasma was much better... until OLED came along, and the best plasma sets still beat OLED for motion.

What I don't understand is the obsession with making everything with a display thinner and thinner, yes thin is great compared to bulky crt, but at some point what's even the purpose for getting screens and phones thinner, I'd prefer they fill the depth with useful viewing tech than getting thinner (and bigger batteries for phones).

Is my assumption real? Can you make lcds better by stuffing them with other tech stuffs rather than making them thinner?

For LCD's yes. By having a thicker display you can more easily implement full array backlight dimming tech. Which is totally worth it for LCD's as it can massively help LCD's do HDR better.
