        I have a Goldstar CRT in my room that I took from my grandma’s house.
        She had been using this everyday since the 90s when she bought it.
        It’s still not burnt, and it’s not even a "good" one, just a cheap scrote CRT.
        It’s still great for PS1 games.

        I have a GDM with 11k hours and it’s in a flawless condition. Picture brighter than my LCDs and uniformty better than anything I’ve ever seen.
        11k hours is 6 hours a day for FIVE years.
        And I know of a exact same model that has 30k hours and it’s still fine.
        One anon once posted an iiyama with 70k hours.. needed some servicing but it STILL worked .. okay. 9 freaking hours a day for 22 freaking years.

        I think it’s fair to say that CRTs can last a damn eternity. But not all CRTs were made equal, these units have survivor bias on their side. And couple thousand dollar MSRPs.

        Meanwhile OLEDs burn in under year in desktop usage! HIlarious!

          Exactly, it’s not 24/7 for 5 years. Your point?

          I got plenty of dim or burned in tubes, it’s more common than young people these days think, since most of them get thrown away and don’t show up in their CRT hunts.

              I have such a chaotic sleep pattern as well as chronic exhaustion so I never know when or how long I will actually be lying down or sleeping, so there is no good time to turn it off.

                First, fix your sleep, you’re gonna feel much better. These cute 2hus should motivate you.
                Second, get an LCD to be your daily beater. There’s no need to burn phosphors for most of the things you do, cathodes are too precious for web browsing.

                  >Oh no no no :DD Dont do this to OLED shills :DDD
                  I just want to know if I made a poor financial decision by buying a QLED as I haven’t seen any comparrisons prior (the deal seemed good).

                  You’re wrong and should feel bad

                  OLEDs don’t even get that bright, at MOST around 800-900nits using tiny-ass 5% screen size boxes.

                  Full screen brightness for OLEDs caps out around 150-200nits, even for the newest panels.

                  […]
                  Biggest difference between OLED and QLED is brightness, QLED gets MUCH brighter, which is why they’re recommended for rooms with windows and other ambient light sources, and OLEDs are recommended for home theater rooms with blackout blinds or no windows.

                  QLEDs get bad haloing in dark scenes with bright objects however.

                  >QLED gets MUCH brighter, which is why they’re recommended for rooms with windows and other ambient light sources
                  Ah, well, seems I’ve made the right choice anyway, then.
                  >QLEDs get bad haloing in dark scenes with bright objects however.
                  I haven’t noticed when watching films. I’ll look for them next time.

                      I tried Halloween (1978) and Blade Runner (1982) and altough my subtitles were not like the one in your picture (from what I assume is a hardcoded sub as a character speaks another language) and were roughly in the black bar space, where I’d see the most difference, I saw no halos.

                      […]
                      or scenes in space with bright objects, the QLED simply can’t deliver a dark inky black of space, because the LED array simply isn’t capable of dimming fully AND allowing for bright objects (like stars and the head lamps) on screen at the same time, so you get a murky grey instead of inky black.

                      Ah, well, I just got rid of my copy of Alien (the original and Covenant) and the only space film that I have now is 2001: A Space Odyssey (which is quite bright, even in dark scenes).
                      In your picture it looks quite jarring, but I didn’t notice it at all without something to compare it to.
                      Maybe if I made the switch to OLED I would then notice.
                      Thanks for posting the comparrison.

                      If you just let the QLED loose it would outshine the OLED, make it look dull like the plasma one. But on closer inspection OLED is easily superior.
                      OLEDs live much shorter lives than even CRTs though, while there really isn’t a lifetime limit with LCDs, including your QLED. Until some IOT service shuts down and bricks your TV anyway.

                      >while there really isn’t a lifetime limit with LCDs, including your QLED
                      That’s great to hear. I only bought this one because I broke my last one’s panel while reassembling it after a backlight repair. It bent a little too much and cracked in the middle. Me and my grandma cringed at the sight and sound of it.

                      >Until some IOT service shuts down and bricks your TV anyway.
                      I never connect it to the internet. It’s been a couple of years and I’ve never had any "connect now to update or don’t use your TV :^)" prompts.

                  As far as I was told, it was supposed to have been left open with the shut down dialogue. Someone clicked shut down but forgot to turn it off and it stayed like that for days.
                  The text box is longer because it was a non English MacOS installation.

                    One of my doctors gave me his old SE/30 when he finally decided to upgrade his office. He was using that thing until 2010 and it has burn-in like you wouldn’t believe. I’m not sure he ever bothered to shut it down every night. Unfortunately after I got it the old Connor gave up and it has been sitting since.

                        Yep. His whole practice used old Macs. I forgot why he upgraded though, I think it was because he was worried about the age of the computers. I do remember him saying he hated newer Macs and PCs.

                        I had planned to get around to it eventually. I disassembled it like five years ago for cleaning/recapping/retr0brighting but never finished. It definitely needed some TLC. Hopefully I’ll actually put it back together before the end of the year since I’ve felt some motivation to finally finish it.

          lol you do realize that why the LED displays failed was the PWM drivers failing and not the lights?
          same like the CRTs that failed, failed because of failed H/V circuitry ot flybacks, not the tube wearing out

          sure I’m might be wrong but anyone with a brain would easily take this on a bet

                scrote, even a $1000+ CRT from back in the day could shit the bed for any number of reasons within a few years.

                Yeah, if you learned how to repair it, good for you. But you have to realize 90%+ of people will never bother, and the minute it doesn’t work, it’ll get tossed.

                  Early technology that is not widely produced and only owned by two companies.
                  LED =! OLED though. But even within the OLED market, you get what you pay for, there’s a difference in lifespan of the panel for identical time used between panels of different price classes too.

        I have a shitty 2yo 4k hdr400 65" bhaun from aldi aus and it’s unkillable its on 60hz so crap for gaming (not that my 2080ti can do any better) but it’s good for kino and hdr Suprisingly works well on mpc

        It even shits on the 2k sdr projectors at the local kinoplex Suprisingly but obviously isn’t near as good as oled even my 2k vr odyssey+ and phone look better but not hdr sadly

        All the CRT devices I’ve owned (2 monitors and 3 TVs) had some kind of malfunction after 3 years, and kept constantly failing after 1 to 2 years. The LCDs I’ve used had their first failure after 10 to 12 years.
        The tube lasts a shitload but it makes no difference if you gotta service them all the freaking time.

          This, CRTs are piles of crap, had the picture tube go out on lots of TVs back in the day. Unlike LCD TVs which I still have some from 2007 that work great.

          and this is compared to OLED, which is the dimmest of the modern high end displays.

          >brighter is better

          it’s not JUST brightness, also, modern content is created with HDR and higher brightness in-mind, so a display that can’t get bright, and can’t decode HDR colors, is obviously inferior to a modern high-end display.

                  Not that I know of.

                  There really isn’t much point in making such comparisons because you can’t exactly go out and buy a CRT or Plasma in prime condition.

                  Even this test Plasma scrotes love to come in and claim that the guy who did the comparison clearly just loves OLED and hates plasma, and sabotaged the plasma to look worse in the test. Or that it’s too old and has run too long to represent what plasma’s COULD do in their best state.

                  You’re never gonna convince plasma scrotes that their TV isn’t the best thing ever.

                      Sure, and even then you’d get people claiming it’s invalid because the comparison monitor didn’t ALSO sit in a warehouse for 10-15+ years.

                      You’d also similarly get people who claim the tester is biased to begin with and any comparison they do is invalid.

                      the screen on the left is too bright!
                      Turn your screen brightness down in dark places.
                      You can literally see it reflecting off wood.

                      The point isn’t to showcase optimal image settings, the point is to show the difference between the two panels.

                        Way to contradict yourself. Which one is it? Are all modern TVs better than plasmas, or only high end ones? Are your comparisons supposed to show better image overall, or just compare max brightness between two screens?
                        You complain about plasma evangelists but come across as an HDR evangelist yourself.

                        HDR is an integral part of the modern media being produced. Ignoring it because your shitty old plasma can’t do it doesn’t make you a purist or anything, it just makes you scrotebrained.

                        If you think ALL that those screenshots showcase is max brightness you’ve already confirmed you’re a scrotebrain anyway.

                  this is a delusion, OLED has better contrast ratio, brightness, and shadow detail.

                  About the only thing plasma does better is pure grey uniformity since consumer OLEDs have streaking

            Modern displays are incredibly painful to look at. I have no idea why anyone would want such extreme brightness. And as for HDR, I would rather not have to continuously adapt to massive changes in brightness, properly exposed SDR shots do that for you.

              You’re wrong and should feel bad

              OLEDs don’t even get that bright, at MOST around 800-900nits using tiny-ass 5% screen size boxes.

              Full screen brightness for OLEDs caps out around 150-200nits, even for the newest panels.

              […]
              […]
              Do you have any QLED and OLED comparissons?

              Biggest difference between OLED and QLED is brightness, QLED gets MUCH brighter, which is why they’re recommended for rooms with windows and other ambient light sources, and OLEDs are recommended for home theater rooms with blackout blinds or no windows.

              QLEDs get bad haloing in dark scenes with bright objects however.

                  Wrong. You can go die in a hole, we had several decent threads a month, now we have shitloads of CRT threads but they are all shitposting. No wonder people shoehorned themselves into LULZ CRT general, since even that is a better place to talk about CRTs in general than here these days. I don’t care about retro threads, go and talk there if you want, I just want comfy CRT threads back that weren’t full of zoomer shitposting and reddit tier scrotery.

                        What, everyone serious about this, including me, has no shortage of good CRTs, half of those people I met here but we rarely ever talk here anymore since the threads get flooded by shitposts, even though sometimes we try.

                        Even if you somehow managed to find a high-end CRT with a limited number of hours on it, it still can’t be expected to last all THAT long in the grand scheme of things.

                        At most you’ll get ~5-10 years of solid use, and realistically you’ll get less than that as the odds of finding a high-end CRT in 2021 that’s been treated lightly are pretty slim anyway.

                        Not to mention, the people with the nice higher end CRTs all basically know what they’re worth these days, so you’re paying out the ass, or hunting around for months, if not years until you happen to get lucky and find one being thrown away or sold for dirt cheap, and in those situations, beggars can’t be choosers, and you’ll very likely find one near the end of the component lifespan and it wont last more than a handful of years anyway.

                        There are simply no real compelling reasons to bother hunting for CRTs these days unless you’re just autistic. The time for that was ~2010-2015.

                        Get spares and cycle the usage between them while looking for new ones to replace the shittier ones.

                        I’d pay a premium for a 21" tbh but thats just the reality of a limited resource. That said good deals are still out there, I got both of my 19" for next to nothing (only paid for shipping) and they have relatively low hours (one had 10k hours last year and the others has 2000). I’d say it’s an issue if you daily drive the monitor, but for occasional usage it lasts forever basically.

                        Haha, then how do you explain so many people still finding NOS monitors recently? Sure, not awhile ago people were throwing 21" monitors out and even willing to pay YOU to get them out of their houses, but never too late, you NEED to be persistant. The GOOD deals are still out there, avoid the "RETROGAMER 1080P MONITOR" guys and look for "old monitor" listing and you may have some luck.

          Wrong, CRTs reached an apex back in the late 1990s. They ran into scalability issues. You couldn’t the screen make larger since the weight of the glass becomes a big problem when fitting and blowing it. You the tubes would need a lot more power to drive modern resolutions and refresh rates and would necessity the need for active cooling like projectors.
          They were at an evolutionary dead-end. The technology was already decades old. We would stuck with same 22-24" units limited to 4Megapixel resolutions at best.

            same with plasma in the mid ’10s. they couldn’t make them 4K at any reasonable size, they were maxing out how bright they could get while maintaining good contrast and not burning in/eating 1000W of electricity etc, there’s so many limiting factors to plasma that OLED has a way higher ceiling on that’s it’s dumb to think that manufacturers are just "greedy and don’t want to make quality products anymore" lol

        I still remember in the A+ study materials they had a section on CRT repair with big emphasis on how easily it could cause you to become an hero and how to discharge the capacitors with a big freaking bang. The fuckers wore out on the regular, the surviving monitors in good condition are mostly premium models owned by rich people who only owned a TV to entertain guests.

        I also recall for years how nerds were well aware of the inferiority of early LCD’s and insisted on sticking with CRTs for years longer than normies ESPECIALLY because DPI scaling was literally not a thing when LCDs came out so you were often forced to stretch the displayed resolution to get your OS at a usable size, but demand eventually completely collapsed as software support improved and we started to see LED backlit IPS in esoteric sizes like 27" 1440p. Since then we now have like 4k120hz OLED which just wipes the floor with CRT. A 27" CRT drew like 200w from the freaking wall and weighed 70 pounds while flickering and irradiating you.

        People who realize that CRTs are yes, still better than modern displays in some respects are just missing the forest for the trees because they really want to feel smart by being contrarians and playing old video games on a 19" display to flex their intellectual prowess. They’re so obsessed with the theoretically better picture on the screen (which isn’t actually better) that they bring old ugly heavy hunks of shit into their house because they totally lack taste. I can’t imagine anybody but zoomers could actually buy into this spec whoring over common sense nonsense.

          People wanting to replicate the aesthetic of low resolution CRTs with filters or other nonsense almost exclusively don’t actually use good CRTs or understand their benefits. I’m glad you’re not included in that group. Wanting to view content with averaged pixels as it was intended just makes you not scrotebrained, which is fine. I’m a CRT scrote and am insulted to be grouped in with idiots who think that phosphor trails, excessive bleeding, and shit geometry are soulful and worth preserving.

            Woke af scrotebrain. Wtf do you mean anime wouldn’t match the refresh rate of a CRT. For one thing CRTs don’t care about specific refresh rates, the other is that all dvd/VHS/broadcast sources are outputting at standard NTSC/pal refresh rate no matter what.

            CRT motion clarity is easily the hardest thing about them to replicate but I feel like the present BFI implementation on newer OLEDs is close enough for any video content. For old games I still use my CRT because everything just werks and it looks tight/no input delay

              Unless the anime was animated on ones (uncommon), you’re going to get duplicate frames, and when that occurs on a strobed display like a CRT, you can end up with duplicated images as your eyes scroll to follow the moving content. Whether that or motion blur is more "natural" or "fluid" depends on the observer I suppose.

                  How about "but it was, except nobody noticed because a majority of 24 FPS content has motion blur baked into it to help hide it, with the exception of certain animated content e.g. anime". The good news is that very little anime content has movement like that. But for that same reason, most anime doesn’t really benefit from being viewed on a CRT these days.

        Wrong, CRTs died because other display technologies were superior in a large number of ares that were relevant. It did reached a peak in 1990s. It simply wasn’t profitable to make units anymore.
        >"MAH MOTION CLARITY!"
        That advantage marginalized to point that it wasn’t worth the headaches and cost associated with CRTs for 99% of the market.

              more contrast, but less dynamic range
              good tubes can get 99.999% perfect geometry
              and they definitely aren’t more durable, lol.
              you also forgot that lcds have really shit viewing angles, but every tube is perfect. there’s also problems lcds face just by being made as cheaply as possible which don’t even need to be problems, but are, even on expensive ones:
              >uniformity/backlight bleed
              >dead pixels
              >IPS glow

                CRTs are fragile as shit. Go ahead and drop that unit especially if it lands on the screen facade and come back.
                Phosphors do eventually fade away or burn-in if you neglectful.
                You can at least replace the backlight on older LCDs monitors before manufactures started to tightly integrated them into panel assembly.

                You can also damage/scratch the glass if you throw a plastic bottle hard enough. There’s a reason why CRT packaging was caked on and layered. It was fragile as a glassware set. The greatest fear of all CRT-scrotes is having an unit face-plant glass first (CRTs are front-heavy). Seen horror stories among movers back in the day.

                  you can’t ship a large lcd panel flat either due to damage concerns
                  a crt being dropped on its face is bad because it’s heavy
                  an lcd being dropped on its face is bad because it’s flimsy
                  note that i’m not necessarily calling either worse, if you treat them right neither will just spontaneously dismantle
                  but calling lcds more durable… i don’t buy that

      CRTs literally suffer from burn-in and died all the time. Don’t confuse survivorship bias with CRT’s being durable.

      LCDs have become incredibly durable ever since they switched from CCFLs to LED backlights and are more durable than CRTs ever were. LCD’s can last freaking forever if they’re engineered to last freaking forever.

      OLEDs have much better black levels than CRTs. Even LCDs outperform them in this area most of the time. CRTs having good blacks is a complete meme perpetuated by zoomers who have never experienced having to close all of their curtains just to watch TV on a sunny day.

      I know this is completely unrelated but youd need atleast 320khz vertical refresh rate out of a crt to preogressively scan [email protected], 2k is much better and actually doable on high end models at a progressive 85hz, interlaced you could probably run 4k comfortably on a 2070SB or a high end vision master, but then your sacrificing a bit of motion clarity and just general clarity due to having an obsenely high pixel clock

                to a crt, only line count matters, which is why names like "1080p" are a thing in the first place, it’s just line count and scan type
                1080p equalling 1920×1080 is due to it being part of the digital HDTV standard, where the horizontal resolution does have a fixed definition, 1080p was likely made alongside FullHD / FHD for easy comparison with the analog standards of 480p, 567i, etc
                it is both fair and technically accurate to call say, 1440×1080 "1080p" (or 1080i if the case may be), since you are only counting lines, which there are still 1080 of

                    yep, you can feed a crt 9999999999999x1440p (assuming it can do 1440p) and it will display it happily, they have no concept of horizontal resolution
                    now of course, i’m not saying the physical display has the necessary focus or colour mask to actually resolve all of that, after a certain point there just won’t be any visible change, but as far as accepting an input signal, yep, horizontal resolution doesn’t matter
                    this is actually not that unusual a thing to do, some things like retroarch even have build in options for this kind of "superresolution", where you use a very high horizontal resolution like say 2560×480, just because you can and it does make some difference, even on a bog standard old tv

                    both were invented for digital purposes and have no relation to crt limits
                    as for a stretched image, just feed it a squashed 4:3 image and it will come out 4:3, dvd’s 720×480 isn’t square pixels either

                      well, the 720 from dvd is kind of related, while it’s not any kind of technical limit, 720 was chosen as they considered more than that to be not very noticeable on a typical tv

                    CRTs have no concept of horizontal pixels, they are analog devices. A pixel to a CRT is like what a sample is to a cassette tape. You know how you can copy a cd to a cassette tape and it works but does not quite sound as good. Well the same principal applies to the CRT. So if you fed 9999999999999x1440p into a CRT it would produce a picture, but obviously it could not resolve 9999999999999 pixels of resolution.
