      M8 they haven't been sold in more than a decade, the only people pawning them off will do it over Facebook marketplace where they'll see the demand and increase their asking price.

      Also you have vintage collecting frickers who own price gauging stores and make it their day job to find shit like this in pawn shops so they can buy it first. You're never just going to stumble into a second hand store and come across a CRT on the spot.

        It depends where you live, sometimes i go to small towns. I found a 3DS sealed for ~120$ because it was collecting dust for a decade.
        One time I found a store doing a clearance because it’s closing up for good.

          It's worth trying to put something out there for "old TV with red, green, and blue connectors". Worst you get is a TV that has component, best you get is a studio monitor. I'd also ask at electronics recycling centers in your area. I've never tried it but seems like it might work.

              That’s where I found mine. I sorted by nearest distance on eBay and found one about 100 miles from me at a recycling facility, and I bought it from them. It was a Sony security monitor that didn’t have PVM in the model number but used the same tube as one of them.
              It’s still pretty trivial to find consumer sets in my neck of the woods. They’re still easily found in pawn shops, and people do still occasionally throw them up on craigslist or fb.

        No, it's the fact CRTs have instant response time. No lag is a side effect of that.

          Response time and input lag are completely unrelated concepts.

          It's not the scaler moron, it's the display technology itself.

            OLED and CRT input lag difference is negligible compared to LCD and OLED or CRT input lag and you know it.

            Only technically.
            CRTs are just beams, literally bright dots. They move fast and our brains interpret that as an image.
            That fact the image is drawn this way both explains the extremely low response time and extremely low input latency.
            The only time the two are decouple is when you have digital CRTs that have a framebuffer, which increases latency without pixel response. That's the sole exception.

                No, it also explains why there's zero input lag. You're controlling an analog circuit to control the tube. Compare that to LCDs or OLEDs which need to wait for an entire frame before they can update the screen.

          Pretty much everything is fixed by now, check the video about RetroTink 4k.

          I'd still wait for mLED though, before update the electronics. The upscaler costs 750 dollars.

        Upscalers are a meme, you can hook up a sub $100 computer with an emulator to get better upscaling and filters than one of the joke boxes. If you are willing to pay for an OLED for the best emulation experience outside of CRT is is a different question.

      Ah, I gave that fricker a click on accident since I’m phoneposting. Yuck
      The 4K is a special toy for Mike Chi’s most dedicated paypigs. It’s obviously very nice but complete overkill. I own a 5X, and as long as HDMI is going to be around I will never have a real reason to replace it. It does what I wanted it to, which is to upscale the signal from all of my old crap and be able to change between interlaced and progressive scan without the screen ever going blank.

      The 4K exists for people like this guy I saw on Twitter who owned four different 5Xs and had them all plugged into his TV and consoles at the same time, all the time, even though the 5X can swap between different profiles on the fly with a remote. He just wanted to own three extraneous upscalers for some reason.

      I saw that fricking video and the beginning where he has the lcd monitor going on about how great crts are I could tell immediately that shit looked really weird. Upscalers just don't fricking work if you're going to play on original hardware grab whatever cheap crt you can find. If not just frick with settings on pc that more than covers it on a 4k screen.
