LCD's are around 20ms: What is the response time of crt monitors?

What are the response times of normal crt monitors?


The best LCD's are hanging at 20-25ms right now, and i think i'll wait till they hit the crt range, simply because the blurring in fast games is just too annoying.


TIA

CRT phosphors can vary a lot. Typical refresh rate for CRT's is about 160Hz

which implies a refresh time of about 6-7 msec. Some phosphors, though

can have decay times of only a few hundred microseconds. I believe the

decay time is the time for the output to drop to 1/10 of it's full output.

I heard that different phosphors were used for different types of CRTs. I think that the phosphors in PAL TV sets took longer to stop glowing. Greatly reducing the flicker. In NTSC TVs they were faster because of the faster refresh rate. Less smearing.


I have also heard that the red phosphors were changed to one that has an orange color just to get a brighter display. The original red phosphors were deep red.
