Does anyone here still use a CRT?

 No.7

I've heard they're great for gaming on account of 0 input lag. I've also heard they're bad for your eyes. I don't even have a desktop! :D

I hate you!

If it is bad for your eyes then you must not absorb enough light anyways. Try sun-gazing and eye rolling for strengthening exercises. I like to use a flash light on my eyelids with my eyes closed.

Some monks were throwing theirs away so I got 4 for free.

 No.66

Is there any advantage to CRT aside from being retro?
Screens are small, but they take a lot of place and I imagine also a lot of electricity.

 No.67

>>66
i just want some free screens honestly

 No.68

>>66
You'll want one if you are into retrogaming since the aspect ratio will be correct and there is no upscaling and so on. Otherwise I don't know why one would still use a CRT. If they are free and you can use them for something then why not though.

Still using my Dell Trinitron, working like a charm.

>Screens are small
This one is pretty big, and it supports 1600x1200 resolution (i use 1280x1024, because that's the highest resolution that can display in 85hz)

Hell yeah! Not mainly of course, but for retro games.

I've been interested in finding one. Haven't used a CRT monitor since 2006. But I have plenty of CRT TVs around me.

 No.150

Not for PC, but I have one that has all the consoles before Xbox 360 hooked up to it. With the exception of the Wii, which is also hooked up to the CRT just because.
