The thread started with:
Please Bring back CRT TV's Into the Production line Again! Even if it is to a small market. If the CRT TV goes back into production soon or 10 years from now with a retro or regular style, I am willing to pay $1,000 or more for a new 19" retro or regular style new CRT TV when it goes back into production. I like the 1970s style retro look CRT TVs to play Atari 2600 and the NES on. For now I am playing my video games on a 27" RCA flat screen CRT TV I bought at wal-mart in 2008.
My personal comment on that..
Why demand new CRTs for 1000$ when you can get multiple tvs for that amount used..
Any serious CRT lover out there is now living in heaven, not in hell.. The good CRT Tvs where really expensive back in the days.. 1000$ Trinitron, you can get now for free..
I know some retro gaming channels and most of them are collectors or even horders.. They have multiple CRTs, test them, compare them, and keep the best ones.. It is small but very healthy community because you can get CRT TVs for free the last years.. people are glad if you pick one up..
So if you are passionate about CRTs, you can get everything.. CRT PC monitors, Mac Monitors with trinitron tubes, Sony Trinitron CRT monitors, Consumer CRTs, Professional CRT, 4:3 or 16:9, some even have digital inputs.. it is all out there, waiting for you..
Me personally I dont miss analog TV tech.. I want the real picture.. no overscan, no distortions, the correct aspect ratio.. I still have my trinitron.. For every Sega Game I need to adjust the tv size in the service menu.. So if you are into CRTs you also need a lot of knowledge how to use them, and if you possess it.. you propably already own a few CRTs
Life is good.. Great time for CRT lovers..
