Q Our trusty ol' 27 inch TV is on its last legs and we would like to replace it fairly soon with a HD set of approximately the same screen size.

Are you kidding that CRT is better than LCD or Plasma? In eaither case, the picture is better (and not just if you have a had version). If you have 20" LCD that is ED or SD, you'll see a nicer picture that is easier on your eyes. Just make sure to look at specs like the refresh rate (8ms or less) and the contrast ratio (very important if you're going to put it in a bright area). Don't get a CRT, they are also worse for the environment (use more electricity and the tubes have dangerous chemicals that are difficult to recapture). Don needs to take his head out of his you-know-what and see the 21st century improvements side by side.

CRT has BY FAR the best picture quality compared to SXRD, DLP, LCD, and Plasma. OLED, Laser, and SED may equal CRT eventually but as of now nothing can beat CRT. That's why they still used $43,000 Sony 16x9 24f/1080p CRTs in hollywood for film editing. CRTs have the BEST contrast ratio(infinate), they have the best motion resolution, least motion blur, best color gamut, highest color resolution, best viewing angle, and basically the most lifelike image. The only thing they suck at is weight and physical size.

Yes in many aspects of performance and specification, the crt tv still holds out very well and although it's slowly aging, It still outputs the best picture so far.

Recent improvements in flat panel technology such as with pioneer's kuro range of plasma screens and sony's high end lcd tv's show that flatscreen's in general are vastly improving all the time and some decent performing flatscreens can rival a mid range sony trinitron, but still not quite as good performers as a high end sony trinitron or loewe crt.

Forthcoming technologies such as oled, laservue, sed and fed are promising true successors to the crt and many of which could very well surpass crt's picture quality, particularly fed tv.

A good move currently in the tv marketplace would be to invest in a decent high specification plasma or lcd, keep it for more or less than 8 years and then purchase an oled, fed etc as by that time the technologies would have greatly matured and would be well established within the consumer tv market.

Or another option would be to hold onto your crt until oled, fed arrives.

Hope this info comes into account for decision making and purchasing.

physical size and electrical noise... but to say LCD is nicer is wrong, its frame surely fits well but its main function is neonlike overcontrasted and bidimensional that is beginning to lack the intrinsic value in the joy of screen watching itself, despite it is exactly what it brought following the previous decade making its presence fun expressing diversity and killing the mad snob quality value. OLED is nicer than LCD but I agree on FED being the true successor of that big screen I want to get rid of. Now we need to move on a more natural being for the new decade.

The one thing that Plasmas, LCDs, DLPs, etc may beat CRT's at is picture without distortion. Of all CRT's I have seen, they all had some form of distortion which I found very annoying.

CRT's are still better.

People can get caught up in all the hype they want. But clearly they have never sat a 1080p CRT display next to a 1080p LCD or other newfangled tech. There is no comparison. The CRT has better contrast, more vibrant color, no viewing angle issues, a lighting fast response time, and an overall image that just jumps out.

The only advantage LCD has over CRT, is size and weight. I own a 1080p CRT monitor and I've also owned 1080p LCD's. I laugh at anyone who thinks LCD is better, because they've clearly been brainwashed by marketing hype.

I am Facilities coordinator at IMSE electronics recycling. And I have to say, for anyone to say that a CRT TV is the way to go is mistaken.“Not a moron” if that is your real name, is correct in almost every aspect. For one, overall quality is better with everything other than a CRT. Cathode Ray Tube TVs are horrible for the environment, the tube itself contains Lead and Phosphorus. I say it’s time we all move to the 21st century. Everyone turn in their old CRT TV and get with it! Let’s keep these nasty CRT’s out of landfills and turn them in to a recycling program!!

Hey Murph the Smurf. The topic is "Sharp T.V. Picture" not which T.V. is greener [sic] You and Moron should stop preaching that green is better in every way till that is in fact true. You can say all that you want about crts being bad for us, but until the engineers get it together ctrs are still what the professional wants.

Can anyone comment on how the competition compares to CRTs in regards to their neutral gray? Which has the most neutral gray. Lets see some comparisons because anything else is just the viewers subjectivity.

Nothing beats CRT, nothing ever will. Remember it wasn't until 1982 that Sony brought out a stereo betamax, which, at standard speed was like twin channel AM (8-12,000Hz). It took a genius at National to double the audio head speed and around 1984 the world had true High Fidelity on a VHS deck the NV 850 & NV 870, not many could afford this super luxury. A full 20,000Hz frequency response. In reality very few CRT's with TRUE hi-fi have actually been sold. You may have two channels these days but how high is your fi. Sadly it probably is not true hi fi. Manufacturers generally want to get the most money from you and the idea is to give you the least weight. Anyone who believes otherwise has illusions, of course there is always the "loss leader" or a genuine bargain. You either lead or follow. Just think seriously for a moment, you will probably end up having to pay someone to take your LCD away, long before your Japanese built Trinitron or Panasonic even has a minor problem. I don't think too many people will get too many fault free hours out of any flat panel so just be cautious and don't follow a trend that has been set by mortgage brokers who wanted to make a small room appear larger by getting rid of a CRT.

Ok lets rock about crt and lcd. I own Crt and Lcd.
