Lcd is cleaner, but has problems too..crt provides some degree of depth to the picture...it's smaller, but it just delivers....for me.
As for depth, bulk or weight...it's only an issue when you move it. Which shouldn't be that often.
Some may love the huge brightness of an lcd...and it is bright and it is huge...but it just doesn't deliver the sense of reality of watching a great crt.
Agreed. Every single Plasma that i've owned looks flat, dull and lifeless.....I've always compared them to my Sony wega CRT SDTV(Via compnent cables) mid 2000's model and my CRT has blown every single one of them out of the water. the CRT provides realistic depth, pop and a far more immersive picture with PERFECT motion to boot. Plasma on the other hand still suffers from motion blur(not as bad as LED/LCD), dithering, noisy picture, dirty wites, ABL and a unaturally flat picture. I'd rather settle for Full array LED at this point just to get a super bright picture with POP, 'white' whites, no ABL and a cleaner/crisper picture.
I truly miss my 32" Sony Wega KD Trinitron, which i gave up 3 years ago when i took the stupid HDTV plunge, which has been an absolute miserable ride since 2011. I've been through about 6 plasma's now(exchanging them here and there) Thankfully i picked up a 27" model of the previous Sony wega CRT i owned. Now I'm in HEAVEN.
it makes my panasonic S60 look like total trash in comparison. watching movies and playing games on my S60 just depresses me, where as on my CRT they come ALIVE, they're full of life, pop and offer Stability in the picture which no LED or Plasma can do(Motion blur, ABL, poor viewing angles)
I'm selling my 60" plasma and getting a FALD/full array 50" vizio(For Wii U & Bluray) for my living room, yet my CRT is still going to be my main display(DVD, VHS, NES, SNES, Atari 2600, N64, GCN & Wii) Seems like 'OLED' is going to be the only tech that will truly satisfy us CRT fan boys.
'Sony' CRT > Full Array LED > Plasma.....imo
