A buddy of mine just bought a 701 s that has the words 'It is now safe to shut down your computer' burned into the tubes, the red tube is most affected. If anybody has an extra red tube for the BD 701 s, let me know ;-)
This is the worst blue I've ever seen. I was told this tube didn't work, but it does, I think its just so burned you can't see any outuput. I don't know if Mr. Gates is responsible for this one, its a blue from a Sony D50, and I'm pretty sure it didn't get like this in the 6000 hours it was used by watching a movie a night.
I just purchased a sony 1272Q with 1800 hours and will be using it for a display device for my computer. I want to beat the burn, any suggestions? Should I have my start bar move around the screen every few days? What color schemes in XP cause less burn than others? I mostly will be playing games (Jedi Knight 2 in high res on a big screen is really fun - also halflife! - and don't get me started on the size of lora crofts tits in tomb raider And probably play a LOT of baldurs gate and neverwinter nights on this thing - DAMN D&D has come a long way from the coffee table!! Thanks in advance.
Most would NOT recommend CRT for computer games because computer games, by their nature , are esentially just static images(majority of the background is static and only a tiny bit of foreground movement). You'll have to expect burn in and can only delay it by running your contrast and brightness settings a few notches below blooming.IMHO.
Most new games are 3-D etc so the image is moving just as much as any movie. However there can still be static images in the foreground such as level meters etc..it must have been a lot worse in the 70's and the 80's...
