Analog 4:3 aspect ratio curved CRT TV's for classic gaming use will make a comeback in the future! My 27" Sony Trinitron CRT TV is 14 years old, and it is still working great! Also, widescreen CRT HDTV will also make a comeback in the future! Will these CRT TV's be made in America or imported to America? Do you think CRT TV's will make a comeback in the future? I think so.

Thanks,

I like CRT TV's and CRT Arcade Monitors the most.

Doubtful, and that's being generous.

Last I recall they're still being made for India and other countries. But why curved? 4:3? Analog? (I assume you're referring to the inputs, worrying about HDMI-only but that's far-fetched).

Here's a realistic thought... It ain't gonna happen.

The majority of North American folks don't want TV's that:
Weigh 200 lb.
Take more space than a small refrigerator
less than 40" diagonal
No one cares for 4:3
can't produce 1080p or better (native resolution)
affordable
... and quite a few more reasons

These are the types of threads that make me both laugh and cry. I laugh at the idea and cry that someone actually believes it will happen.

He does this every few months, not a lot new going on. Plenty of us get it, but I think even those among us who prefer a CRT for the image it provides aren't delusional.
