from plasma to crt.

Has anyone ever gone back to watching a crt after having a plasma as their main set? I watched a crt for about a week,and really enjoyed the picture. It seemed too pop with rich colors and more depth to the shows.I just really enjoyed it.When I returned too the plasma it seemed dull. I have not made the switch back too crt, but am thinking about it. Just wondering if any body has ever done this. Thanks for any feedback.

Well If you have a CRT why settle for that??????

CRTS are analogue...... They are warm,beautiful and missed out on by many today who think that stuff is better which is sad.......

CRTs are AND ALWAYS HAVE BEEN the best!!

A dude over on the Sony 960 CRT thread bought a upper end Panasonic plasma and loves it, says it's a little better than his Sony but admits the much larger size may have some influence. I think a 65" VT series. He's a diehard Sony 960 lover too.

I don't know as his was one of the most recent and last plasmas and an upper end model (I think top reviewed too). He loves it and this from an owner&lover of one of the best CRTs made; he said it exceeded all those PQ issues you mentioned plus some, and he appears to be an audiophile (he paid good money for calibration of both TVs before the comparison, and from an expert calibrator). Maybe your Samsung is just old tech, I do see it's only 720p.

Still enjoying the crt. Colors just seem deeper than on a plasma.

if it were possible for me to buy a crt, I would switch back to crt...


I just don't think they make them anymore, I know they don't sell them locally, and the nature of crt makes it nearly impossible to ship.




there are some advantages to plasma, but the only issues I ever had with crt were NOT pq related. so it's kind of sad to compromise picture quality for convenience.

Oh they're out there in force but I suspect he's referring to a new one. This is the time to be watching the used markets as it's TV replacement season.

I still have 2 Sony Trinitron CRT Tubes here, but they don't even have a chance against plasma tvs. Even with DVD SD content.


Some picture showing DVDs (not Blu Ray) upscaled with the Playstation 3 to the 50 inch Panasonic ST60. Put a tube next to that and It has no chance.

Good to know, how's motion compare? Of course not all upscalers are equal, looks like the P3 is pretty good at it. I think you have a better plasma too, sounds close to the upper end one I mentioned the other guy has (I think a VT model). Panasonic made a pretty good plasma from what I read.

If I have the right movie there, we also need that famous underwater pic of Jessica Alba's bikini butt to tell for sure.
