CRT monitors OoO

How many?

Well... 1,2,3 ?

It is hard to chose. 3 would be optimal.
But I might stick with one, easier to lan transport. :-)

I preer my samsung crt... 240hz in 640x480 !
But in fact any crt will do
If you just go low enough in res, all crts are good

Then all crts are gamer monitors.

It's just a question of gaming in low enough resolution

And all the progamers use 640 resolution in quake and unreal etc. (fps games)

It's because it makes you aim better

Less strain on graphics card
Faster redrawing
More accuracy
Faster hz (100+hz)
Faster input, you could tune that ps2 mouse to 240hz too... with overclocking tool for mouse for windows

It's just best, overall

Oh, why, oh why, did I sell my crt
I did, didn't I?
Nop... it stood on my balcony for like 4years, and when I tried to get it to work, it stank of cat pee (all those neighbor cats used it as a nest :(
And it almost exploded when I turned it on

Cat pee 1
Monitor 0

They really don't build them like they used to
Not even samsung

And my bro had this big expensive 22" designer crt monitor
it could do bnc cables, 1600x1200 in 120hz and all. Really high refresh and huge desktop space

It's likely the best monitor I've ever seen, tried

I don't remember who made it.

But if it can do 1600x1200 in 120hz, it gotta be good...
It also costed like $2000 from new... but he got it used for cheap

My wishlist.
Would love to game on such one, above all

Though if I cannot afford that, may stick to a noname brand 17"
All crts are good for gaming, same technology.
Bigger != better

It's just less strain on the eyes for desktop work, programming. It's clearly the best monitor I've ever looked at, tried

If only I could remember the brand.
One day if I ever get the space, will get such one. No, not the big 24" sonys with nasty trinitron technology with lines on them.
This designer crt my bro had.
Trinitron is a flawed technology.
But I'm pretty sure that monitor was flawless, it looked like perfect coding, gaming monitor.

And I usually don't say that.

I would not use a trinitron sony even if I got it for free I think
And they go up to $3000 from new... or more

But this one was just perfect. I would not trade it for any other monitor.
But I would like to find one like that one day, somehow.

Most monitors I find, tend to disappoint slightly...

Tfts... too slow, input delay
Crts... either too big, or too small... 14 inch vs 21 inch

But 22 inch seemed perfect

It was not good for lan though
Seems we cannot have it all ... not so easily

I must conclude that 17" crt is still best overall. For gaming.
And if you don't care about lan partys. Get a 22" model.

Above that is just too big I feel.
