I have returned to a CRT monitor
NEO-GEO man
And what a HUGE step up from digital rubish....

This is like opening the screen door and seeing the REAL world!!!

Many years ago a bought a then brand new LG F700P 17 inch CRT monitor, which is one of the very few CRT monitors that is a TRUE flat screen, as most are only flot on the outer surface, the inner surface is still curved. The LG is flat on the inside as well. Anyway, after around about 20,000 hours of operation, it was not only rather badly burned in ( will explain how soon ) but it was starting to suffer a vertical deflection failure that at the time i didnt have the knowledge or time to fix.

The burn in occured due to the previously mensioned issue ( vertical deflection failure slowly coming in ) which in the early days would go away after the monitor had been on for a while. After a couple months, it would take 20 minutes or more before the issue would go away, and for the first 5 minutes it was near unusable due to the bottom of the picture folding over. So ofcourse, i left it running 24 hrs a day, which solved the issue for ages after that, til it shut off due to power failure... It never recovered, the fold over was covering half the screen after warm up.

Even with the monitor turned off, you could still reasonably clearly see most of the desktop background picture, and could very clearly see the start menu and quick launch icons.

All that considered, it still had the best picture of any monitor ive ever owned or seen...

LCD monitors of today will still not touch the ultra fine dot pitch of this electro-magnetically focused beast, and even the finest of LED lit high contrast digital displays will not go close to the contrast ratio of the CRT.

And itll do all this ultra sharp imagery at up to 1920x1440... What more could you ever want from a display???

I think that CRT is the way to go, but couldn´t you have avoided the burn ins by using a screensaver?

No cause the screen saver wouldve caused other issues with programs i would sometimes leave running. By the time it got to that stage it was just dragging out the death anyway cause i couldnt fix it at the time, and leaving it running meant it stayed warmed up.

The burn in was bad, but it didnt bother me a whole lot cause the monitor was near dead. If id have known then that i couldve repaired it, id have kept it!!

Being electro-magnetic focus meant that it was still razor sharp even after those thousands of hours had been put on it. By that many hours, an electro-static focus monitor ( which is most of them ) wouldve probably been way too blury to use on 1280x960, yet this burned in old dog was still sharp as a tac at 1920x1440.

Hard to say how id think of the picture on it now considering after that many hours i had the contrast and brightness both set to 95 and sometimes both on 100, but i sure was way sharper!!
