    I had a fucking expensive as shit, high quality CRT at the end of their reign. Fuck that goddamn eye cancer and fuck all modern kids who want to be different for the sake of being different because they want to be special little snowflakes and use fucking shit CRTs.
    No one wants to stare at that trash all day. Thank fuck for modern display technology.

      show your crt's perfect black level then, zoomer. crt having perfect black level is a meme. you can have perfect blacks but it will also skew the gamma making it impossible to see near-black colors.

        I worked in a broadcast studio for over 30 yrs. Tech quite literally went from black and white to trinitrons (which as anyone who has worked in tv in the past will tell you - used to be the epitome of broadcast quality)

        just because you've been memed by LULZ doesn't mean you're an expert, smart or right.

        Broadcast monitors are little different from these PC CRTs that can run at 1440p at flicker-free refresh rates.

                How retarded are you? Displayport is a digital interface, which is immune to noise. Using an adapter does not add any more noise than a traditional ramdac. If the adapter is as well designed, which they appear to be.

                Also even if that were true, your DyAC garbage fails spectacularly, even in your picture there's crosstalk. It also doesn't work properly at 60hz, which is a requirement for me.

                It's as if that was my point.
                These anons use pictures of PVMs literally sold specifically for dark rooms, thus have no coating what-so-ever.
                There are lots of PC CRTs with really good coatings.

                >he thinks analog to digital (with an adapter) adds no signal noise...
                Digital to analog, retard. And that happens regardless if you're using an adapter or not.
                You could even argue external DACs can be better for noise as the converter isn't inside your noisy PC.
                In fact with a male-male vga piece you can completely eliminate the VGA cable and plug the DAC directly to the CRT - there's actually even adapters specifically designed to do this.
                The picture you can get with CRTs is better now than ever before.

                If you're arguing that LCDs don't have these issues at all, that's a different argument and preference. Many like the smoother gradients and lesser posterization of analog displays. Even fucking LTT noticed this.

                any crt with vga is ANALOG, any *modern* graphics adapter is DIGITAL
                so, based on the pic I used the signal is going from a crt (ANALOG) to an hdmi connector (DIGITAL).

                zoom the pic on any current oled phone and you can see its not perfect black. and its not camera noise, you can clearly see the shadow mask pattern in the near blacks. the point is, if you cant see the near blacks then its either:
                1) your eye sight is fucked
                2) your "perfect" black on your display is overcrushing the near-blacks

              Arguing with crt trannies is waste of time. It's absolutely irrelevant if crt monitors has some benefits over lcd or not as they aren't being manufactured for 20+ years at this point. They're not coming back and they're not getting cheaper, more obtainable or reliable as the time goes by. It's a museum technology which fades out from existence as we speak. If I can't get FW900 for ~$600 max this is where the conversation ends as there's much better monitor options above this price point. Motion clarity isn't the ONLY thing which matters in monitor. Most people prefer at least 24"/27" 16:9 or even 21:9 as these are more comfy for productivity tasks and content consumption than ancient 19" 4:3. Brightness is also something crts (~100cd/m) can't even compete with modern displays measuring at 300-500cd/m which is a lot more usable in brightly lit conditions. Color gamut on crt is also limited to sRGB at best which lcd monitors has perfected a decade ago and moved on to a wider ranges. The fact you're clinging on a singular aspect of image quality only portraits your severe autism and lack of rational thinking.

                current ips motion clarity performance isn't enough for everyday computing and gaming. We're talking literally subpixel blur with no ghosting or overshoot here.

                proof? I don't know why you're comparing peak 2.5k~5k phosphor brightness to being able to light up a whole screen to that brightness
                CRTs barely do 300 nits on a good day of fullscreen brightness

                >proof?
                Has to do with strobing which reduces brightness. You're correct that tubes don't get higher than 300 nits, but the phosphors themselves glow at several thousand nits for a very short time.
                2500 * (1/16.66) is approximately 150 nits.

                > modern displays measuring at 300-500cd/m
                Keep in mind that your 500 nits with 1000:1 contrast ratio means your blacks are at ridiculous 0.5 nits.
                >Motion clarity isn't the ONLY thing which matters in monitor.
                Yea, we like good overall picture quality too, not your half-a-nit blacks that become 5 nits when viewed from the slightest angle thanks to IPS glow.
                >Color gamut on crt is also limited to sRGB at best which lcd monitors has perfected a decade ago and moved on to a wider ranges.
                First, there's absolutely zero utility for wide gamuts in a gaming monitor when absolutely all games worth caring about are sRGB.
                Second, you're not a photographer, and even if you are, you're not printing your works, you're posting them on the interwebs where everything is sRGB.
                Third, wide-gamut gaming monitors are particularly garbage at sRGB because they're gaming monitors. They have not been produced for color accuracy. Even their wide-gamut modes are usually quite all over the place. It's literally an oversaturation gimmick.
                Fourth, actually color-accurate decent LCDs are absolute dogshit for anything interactive. You cannot eat your cake and have it too with LCDs either.
                Fifth, monitors did not master sRGB. My decade old AdobeRGB Eizo monitor has an atrocious gamut and cannot cover anything properly. This is a late-game CCFL, once we switched to blue LEDs with yellow phosphors we went 5 years backwards in progress.

      Laser DLP projectors are great but as you said ambient light kills them. It's really something you need to build an entire room around and understand quite well in order to get a good image.
      Given we're heading towards absurd resolutions and refresh rates I don't think multisync is that big a deal anymore. Starting at around 16K you could nearest-neighbour scale anything arbitrarily and the pixels would be so small that you could never notice the errors.

      Actually overrated as hell.
      The multisync of a CRT is far from ideal.
      CRTs have a fixed pitch so for example a 240p or 480p on a High End PC CRT Monitor looks like emulator with fat scanlines.

      With 8K+ Resolution you can emulate a variety of CRTs for each scenario you could want with a simple click.
      This makes it superior to CRTs which could never hope to achieve such a feat.

      Laser Scan Projection is dogshit because of the speckling issue and nobody working on it.
      Laser DLP is just DLP with Laser backlighting and doesn't have most of the good stuff from Laser.

      I can see Laser Diode Displays become a thing in the far future since Lasers offer:
      >the widest color gamut
      >the fastest possible response time(picosecond compared to a few nanonseconds for MicroLEDs)

      And we still have NanoLED after MicroLED before we ever get there. But all in all I don't think you guys realize just how much of a big jump MicroLED will actually be for display technology.

      • 1 week ago

        Splitting hairs over picoseconds vs. nanoseconds is pretty pointless. MicroLED is so fast that you can already have any refresh rate you want with strobing and the works and it will never be an issue.
        Gamut is also not that big a deal on even current displays, we can almost do 100% Rec. 2020 already.
        Laser projection my stay around for very large displays, but I honestly don't think we will get something more optimal than microLED unless we somehow design an even better lighting technology. LEDs are even within an order of magnitude of perfect efficiency.

          The bigger reason for why they would ever use Laser Diodes would be the wider color gamut.
          Quantum Dots and Laser have wider color gamuts and they could cover the future Rec 2100 standard which I don't think MicroLED can but that's far in the future anyways.

          But it is. 21" CRT monitors are usually around 100W. Later CRT TV's were fairly efficient. My 29" CRT TV is rated at 100W. There's probably no CRT above 200W except for those fairly rare and gigantic 36" ones.

      Many CRTs can do 1200p though, some 1440p and 1536p, that's a lot more than your 1080p.

      We haven't had a single good thread in years, I've checked out most of them, even the ones I missed out on I've gone thru on the archive. It's all shitty zoomer shitposts and arguing. The zoomers not being able to ignore shitposts and constantly just re-posting the same few CRTs pictures of their has made these threads into unbearable garbage.

      >implying le olde CRT threads weren't just the same dozen rEtRoOmEr pictures over and over again

      I'd hardly call 96kHz low end.

      In 2000s CRT markets got flooded with cheap sub-par 19" 96khz monitors. They're super common and qualify as mid-low end, as they don't even have stable voltage regulation.

      I keep hearing about crt flaws but whate actually are the flaws?

      Looking at this thread the only flaw they can mention is worse light-rejection.

          Considering the amount of 130-140kHz monitors I've picked up over the last half a decade for free, I'd consider it overpaying and I'm from a pretty small country in Europe.
          Your experience may vary though.

          To be fair I only lurk listings and don't engage with whatever local community there may be, but for now I'm not aware of a single other >130khz unit here.
          I've seen couple =130khz units and they've gone for 160-180 euro on AUCTION sites, so the market value here for these monitors is approximately that.

          This is true. at 60hz crts are quite bad
          >grainy quality that impacts image clarity from results from the nature of AG/SM array that starts to become noticeable at high resolutions (greater then 1600x1200)
          Havent experienced that personally but possibly on coarse masks
          >needs frequent tweaking and calibration if you want accurate colors and minimize screen distortions (This what killed them in the professional graphical circuits)
          Not really a flaw, even brand new lcd monitors usually need to be calibrated for better color accuracy

          >grainy quality that impacts image clarity from results from the nature of AG/SM array that starts to become noticeable at high resolutions (greater then 1600x1200)
          He keeps repeating this but I've ever seen this effect on mediocre shadow masks. Even .30mm aperture grilles don't appear grainy at all. They just becomes quite soft at 1200p, though still resolves everything really well (thin single-color lines don't vanish like on SMs). Mode modern .24mm/.22mm AGs are extremely sharp even at ridiculous resolutions.

          How can I get a CRT for free?

          By waiting and putting up ads. I got my 300SF for free like that.

        >In 2000s CRT markets got flooded with cheap sub-par 19" 96khz monitors. They're super common and qualify as mid-low end, as they don't even have stable voltage regulation.
        Sure but it's all about context, is your 300SF low-end as well due to it being 85kHz? Is a GDM-W900 low-end because it's "only" 96kHz? It's just a spec that cant tell the whole story, and more often than not most mid/high monitors are 96kHz, in my experience.

          I agree with all you're saying, and I was only talking about those cheap 00s units. Older monitors are a different story, the fastest monitors Sony had for most of 90s were 96khz afaik.
          You can't really use khz at all for judging quality except at the extremes. Thus I usually tell new anons to just get the biggest monitor possible.

          why are crtfags so obsessed with their shit? it's like homos pushing their agenda on everyone. just enjoy your crt and leave me alone

          Why are you on LULZ if you don't enjoy the forced memes? CRT posting is a lot more sparse and innocent than a lot of the other bullcrap on this board.

      For longevities' sake, sure. Make sure it's on it's own small power supply thought straight from AC.
      Something like those 220V AC to 5V DC adapters that you can velcro onto some other part and wire a fan up directly and attach it to ventilation holes on the case.

      There were some CRTs that came with inbuilt fans. Might be an alright idea to add one, although it will probably speed up dust buildup compared to their usual convection cooling so keep that in mind.

    Its cause lcds suck and need to compensate with stupidly high refresh rates.

      at low fixed frame-rates and variable resolutions which were commonplace when CRTs were the only option.
      We aren't here anymore as a consequence CRTs have greatly been marginalized to point that they aren't worth their known faults (NuCRT pretend don't exist) in the vast majority of use cases.

        What flaws do crts actually have though?

        • 1 week ago
          Anonymous

          They're fat as fuck.
          Besides that though, their flaws were pretty much ironed out on high-end units (ones with digital regional adjustments for convergence, geometry, focus, etc.). Deranged anti-CRT posters have probably never seen anything better than their old bargain bin 15" HP compaq.

          >it's just a sub-optimal experience.
          It is practically the same experience but the warmth of your childhood memories clouds things and your hyper OCD/autistic selves cannot accept it.
          >crt is perfectly smooth at 60hz
          Nope, it is a flickering mess. 60hz is objectively shit for motion accuracy.

          >Nope, it is a flickering mess.
          It's literally fine unless you stare at a mostly white screen for ages, like a light web page or document (something nobody shills CRTs for anyways). Most games are a mix of light and dark; stuff will be moving around and you'll be distracted from any flickery areas. Your eyes get used to it too, I used to be a lot more bothered by it than I am now, although I never thought it was as bad as you're making it out to be.
          >60hz is objectively shit for motion accuracy.
          This statement is objectively false, or at least very poorly worded. Even if your eyes are super extra sensitive to flicker, you would still see how much better the motion is at 60Hz on a CRT. You would just find the flicker overly bothersome on top.

          inconsistent geometry for one. imagine having to manually set scale, rotation, skew, pincushion and a slew of other non-linear transformation on a display to get a perfectly square pixel. instead of true square pixel per rgb leds on modern display. and its not a set it and forget it thing either. the geometry will drift over time and if you actually work professionally in broadcasting or video production in the 90s/00s, you'll know that even travelling to different geographical location will also drift the geometry. fucking magnets man how do they work?

        This is true. at 60hz crts are quite bad

              No, you need to specifically support strobing at 60Hz. Unless you have a monitor with such a high refresh rate that you can do a very silly software BFI.

                Answer the questions, don't deflect.
                Nobody is talking about software BFI. My comment on the compositor was about running the display at 120Hz+ (with BFI if you will) and having the compositor simply double the frames from a 60Hz source (a game or w/e "content" requires it). This will result in the same clarity as the 240Hz display you originally replied to.

                This will cause double-strobing artifacts, no good.

                Yeah so what's the point in claiming it's brighter than a 1200 nit OLED for example?

                It is brighter when we compare an equivalent strobe, Hitler.

                No it won't. For 120Hz display you output 120FPS with the compositor displaying the frame from 60Hz twice. This is not rocket science.
                If anything it will improve clarity because it will strobe twice.

                Absolutely wrong, use your fucking peanut brain for a sec.
                Your eyes move smoothly while the object stays still and is flashed twice. This leads to a double image like this

                On a non-strobed display it would just be a smear, because the object is not moving for 1/hz seconds, while your eyes are. On a single-strobed display, the flash appears in the exact same spot on your retina, so it looks crystal clear, like things in reality look.

                What's so special with 60Hz? It's an arbitrary artifact of the analog era.
                120Hz+ on LCD simply feels better.

                It may be little arbitrary but it's a good cutoff for animation smoothness* (different from motion smoothness, with animation I mean things that cannot be visually tracked, like legs of a video game character).
                You'd also be surprised how responsive and smooth things look on a 60hz CRT. Needing to push framerates is a brute-force way to compensate for shortcomings of modern displays.

                * phantom array effect still applies tho

                You don't understand what happens in . My solution results in the last part of that image - frame rate = Hz.

                >It may be little arbitrary but it's a good cutoff for animation smoothness
                But it's not. Media is released at frame rates indivisible with 60Hz. So if you're not running at native refresh 23.976Hz most content is you're getting artifacts in some form.

                CRTs also have a lot of limitations that were already described in this thread.
                The "60Hz or death" is a stupid requirement for many reasons.
                That 240Hz with BFI will look way better than a CRT even for 60Hz content - just quadruple the source.

          current ips motion clarity performance isn't enough for everyday computing and gaming. We're talking literally subpixel blur with no ghosting or overshoot here.

Hence the dogshit 8bit 165hz od and not running it at 12bit 60-120hz which apparently drastically improves color and shit.

              Gayman benefits the most from good motion clarity. The fact it's a monitor specifically for gayman, but it gets beaten by decades-old office CRTs in one of the most important game-related metrics, is an embarrassment.

                No, high refresh rate and FPS. I'd pick 360Hz 500 FPS over 120Hz 500 FPS any day, even if the first has worse motion and picture quality. There's really no games that require better motion clarity than what good displays already do, even if they don't have very good motion clarity.

              You asked about 4k. It can do 3840x2160 60Hz, that's a 132kHz mode, not hard for any CRT above that, like 137kHz.

                I want NATIVE 4K as in no black gay bars. I want to be able to utilize the full screen with no squished pixels to make it look worse than if you had simply stuck to the native 1280x1024.

                Then I'm afraid you have look somewhere else, if widescreen 4k is an absolute requirement for you. You should have known not to make such a dumb request in the first place. Why are you looking at CRTs anyway? We never said these are good productivity.

                Its native with black bars, better to think of a crt as a mini projector you can use less then the complete crt and the image still wont be squished or have artifacts.

                That's not 4K though. I want to be able to watch my 4K blu-rays on my monitor and that requires at least 3840 horizontal pixels. Yeah sticking to my IPS screen. I could care less about black level autism.

                Then do 3840x2160? You'll have black bars anyways since the blu-ray is widescreen.
                Even on a 4k 16:9 or 16:10 screen you'll have black bars watching 4k blu-rays.

                That's fine granted the display is actually 16:9. On a 4:3 CRT it will just look like I'm squinting.

      Time is money, anon. Especially when dealing with the absolute best CRTs ever made, you cannot be too picky about the couple if any opportunities you'll ever get.
      I've myself got really nice CRTs for free and cheap, but these monitors are in a different league.

      >Your eyes move smoothly while the object stays still and is flashed twice. This leads to a double image like this
      In my method it doesn't, you misunderstand the issue on that screenshot. If this was the case then static images with BFI would give you nausea.
      >It may be little arbitrary but it's a good cutoff for animation smoothness
      But it's not. Media is released at frame rates indivisible with 60Hz. So if you're not running at native refresh 23.976Hz most content is you're getting artifacts in some form.
      >You'd also be surprised how responsive and smooth things look on a 60hz CRT.
      I don't need to be surprised, I am old enough to have worked with amber mono displays and lived through all generations after.
      >All video
      False, almost no old video is 60fps. Modern ones are, but not movies, and those work better on 120+
      >All 2d games
      False.
      >All old games
      Mostly false.
      Again, concrete examples of games requiring absolutely exclusive fullscreen 60Hz modes please. Any game that can be windowed or borderless fullscreen will be handled by the compositor.
      Bonus: Windows 10 deprecated support for exclusive fullscreen and is emulating it for old games on newer WDDM.

      >If this was the case then static images with BFI would give you nausea.
      In static images your gaze is also static, so the flashes appear at the same place every time. Nothing strange here.
      >In my method it doesn't,
      What is your method? Interpolation?
      >But it's not. Media is released at frame rates indivisible with 60Hz. So if you're not running at native refresh 23.976Hz most content is you're getting artifacts in some form.
      Jitter is another topic, film being 24hz has nothing to do with my argument with animation smoothness. 24hz is never smooth.
      >but not movies, and those work better on 120+
      Are you interpolating again or what the fuck?
      For 24hz content there's nothing that you can do apart from eliminating jitter. It'll always be choppy.
      24hz content looks the same regardless if you're displaying it at 72hz or 144hz, on sample&hold displays.
      >>All 2d games
      >>All old games
      >False.
      Name one, and I'll name you 5 that are locked.
      >Any game that can be windowed or borderless fullscreen will be handled by the compositor.
      What the fuck are you doing with the fucking compositor? Interpolation?

      Cope. Name one CRT that can display in 4K widescreen. Simply not having ghosting (which is irrelevant on IPS) is not worth the extra cost, weight and loss of desk space.

      Yea there are several CRT monitors that can run at 2160p.

      >black bars
      So it can't do ti then.
      >but what about 4:3 playback
      Not the same as using a desktop. Also CRT can only go up to 1600x1200 anyway.
      >you need more?
      Yes.

      bars
      >So it can't do ti then.
      it's still 3840x2160p even if you have black bars
      >Also CRT can only go up to 1600x1200 anyway.
      Wrong, my F520 is designed to do 2048x1536p85hz. It can do 2160p60 too just fine, CRTs don't have locked resolutions.

          But how does a signal go from a CRT to your computer? ??

          There's no way I could have written that post and found an appropriate reaction image in a minute.
          Also while it's amusing it exactly matches the 1 minute post ratelimit, I don't think it's possible to get the delay exactly down to the minute. For a post to get through from the same IP it should have at minimum bit over a minute of delay.

                Their BFI wasnt real BFI anyways, they have a setting for low medium or high BFI which doesnt make any sense, if it was actual full black frame insertion
                (Why dont they just implement that properly anyways should only take a small software update)

                >Their BFI wasnt real BFI anyways
                It is, you seem to not quite understand what BFI means in this context. The black "frames" being inserted aren't strictly the same duration as regular frames, like they would be using a hacky (and inferior, unless you had a VERY fast refresh rate) software implementation.
                The longer the black frame duration (and, consequently, the shorter the regular frame duration), the less motion blur will be seen by your eyes.
                For example, at 100Hz (10ms between each new real frame) it could be like this:
                >Frame 1 shown for 2ms
                >Black "frame" shown for 8ms
                >Frame 2 shown for 2ms
                >Black "frame" shown for 8ms
                Repeat 98 more times, and you've got a second of strobed display output.
                "Low", " Medium" and "High" just adjust the ratio of real frame duration to black frame duration. "Low" may mean 4ms real and 6ms black, while "High" means 2ms real and 8ms black.
                (The actual durations will depend on the display, I'm not sure if any available OLEDs can go as low as 2ms frame persistence, but it's theoretically possible).
