same old (crt) or same oled

I realize that this question gets asked in many places and in many ways, but I still would appreciate some thoughts. I have a Sony 34XS955, about ten years old. It may be my imagination but it feels like the luminosity/brightness is fading and the colors are washing out a bit, but otherwise it's going along. I still prefer the image to virtually every LCD/LED tv that I've watched. My friends all have flat screens and can't stand the SOE, the depthless picture, the artificiality of the image. But of course I lust for a bigger screen and I have to admit I've been very interested in the development of OLED.

So my question is simply: is there a consensus that OLED has in fact a better (or "better") picture quality than CRTs? Or, putting aside the screen size, is the CRT still competitive in terms of pq? Or is it just too subjective to say?

Again, I know this is an old question. My answer for the LCD/LED years was: I like my CRT. But OLED has me rethinking things ... and wanting a new tv.

THANKS!

Some of the Sony 960 guys went with plasmas in the past couple of years, claim the same or better PQ than their 960s. Specifically I think the plasma of choice was the Panasonic VT series (higher end), I think they got 65 inchers.

Whoa, somebody with a properly functioning pair of eyes and non-dysfunctional visual sub-part of their brain. How *rare* indeed.

"the depthless picture"...absolutely, this one is quite noticeable to me as well.

"the artificiality of the image"...I refer to this one as the artificial sheen.

"SOE"...Motion issues.
This one is so unbelievable. People are dropping north of $5k on some of these higher-end panels and they don't have problems watching fast or near *still* motion on them??? And there ok with Judder???


Sorry to say this but my solution has been to acquire replacement 34 XBR's as I see them come up for sale. I have a number of them now so that when one dies out, I can replace it with another set for quite some time.

OLED is *not* going to be the true replacement of the CRT. Although, the colors and black level should be a close match to CRT's, they still suffer from all the motion issues of current flat panel tech.

SED would have been the true successor to the CRT incorporating the best of both technologies, but sadly, Canon has decided not to go into production with SED.

Nothing will match crt for the depth of the picture and motion. But you do not get the big screen movie experience.
