Searching for retro gaming CRT tv

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey AVS forum people! I know you guys are the experts when it comes to TV (this is where I got my info to calibrate my Samsung HDTV back in 2008 after all) and I am now looking to buy a CRT television for retro gaming.

I'm looking for one that has an Svideo port, possible component and maybe RGB all that at around 27" or lower. Flat screen or not, not much difference except for lightguns. Is there a TV like that that was ever produced, my initial researches provided nothing sadly except a really rare hospital monitor made by Sony that is like 1000$ on Ebay...


If anyone has info, please share it with me, I really want to make an awesome classic gaming room and for that, the CRT television is a must.

Thanks!

Yes but they would not be optimal, probably won't have Svideo or RGB and also I live in a small 3k village :-P.

IF you want a really nice monitor this one is 20" amd is a broadcast quality monitor. This was probably over 2k new.

I just bought a JVC 15 inch for my CCTV security and its awesome. This sony would be better and has the inouts you want.
