      You won't convince these disingenuous morons who never played these games back when they came out.

      I have only played FF7 as a child shortly after it released, naturally on a CRT, and it doesn't look anything like that filtered screenshot on the left.

        that's correct. these threads are always populated with zoomers and genAs who have never used one.

    I can't find an 8-9 inch one, I want something small
    I don't want any bigger
    Scalpers caught onto the trend online so they're jacked up in price
    Looking around my area periodically at listings so I don't get bent over by overpricing

      I once found an 8" PVM at Goodwill for $20. Granted, this was five years ago.

        The few I was able to drive to as of late were all filled with older flat screens, didn't see a single CRT
        I'll find one I want one day

      8-9 inch is too small. I got a 13 inch one and think it's too tiny sometimes.

    No good filters for emulators, and it's honestly a pain in the ass to get ahold of and store an actual CRT tv

    CRTgays are the vinylgays of video games. They don't improve the experience by any objective measure, people only prefer it due to nostalgia and psuedoscience.

      That's actually a great comparison. Both are cheap to get into if you know what you're doing. They give you the means to enjoy media that would otherwise be collecting dust. Critics act like there's no appreciable difference because you can't really see it unless you've experienced them firsthand. They simultaneously complain that those into it are nostalgiagays or young people who don't appreciate how good they have it.

      >CRTgays are the vinylgays of video games.
      Pretty much this. I am a 45 year old middle-aged gay that played NES and SNES as a kid on on CRTs, and I can tell you the difference is negligible. In most cases you won't even be able to see a difference unless you are sitting five centimeters away from your monitor/TV.

      The only thing I have noticed is that proportions of some sprites might be slightly off if you look very closely, but that is quite honestly not a problem at all if you aren't an autist.

      Furthermore, I think it is fine to buy a CRT if you really want that ultra nostalgiagay feeling, but you are going to be greatly disappointed if you are expecting a CRT to vastly improve your gameplay experience.

      All said, I would personally always choose an OLED-panel over a CRT.

      No, that's moronic, you can measure audio quality in exact measurements to say there is no difference but you can't measure two technologies like that other than pure resolution, which is not the reason people use crts at all and then if you measure things like contrast and refresh rate the quality of crts shows through easily but that's still separate from how the pixels are displayed.

    I use a 1440 x 900 monitor and I worry about what I'll do when it breaks. They don't really sell these anymore. I was given a minotor that was like 2k x some shit or other once but I never used it because it was too big. I don't want to have to turn my head to see shit on the screen.

    Don't fall for the Sony meme guys.
    I have multiple of them - they might have been great 30 years ago but they are EXTREMELY susceptible to geometry and convergeance issues, which get worse over time.
    And those issues are almost impossible to fix.

    In a sony service mode there are dozens of geometry parameters you can tweak, and if you change just one of them, all the others have to be adjusted too. It's a nightmare.

    And convergeance can only be adjust by applying magnets to the back of the tube while it's switched on and running.

      *tldr, avoid sony, get something like LG Flatron instead.

    The CRT method of AA is basically the effect of FXAA or low-res texture filtering. The image on the left is blurry as shit.

    I have one, but I have reasons I'd recommend against getting one:
    -Space/Setup: CRTs take up a lot compared to flatscreens, and require a sturdier stand to mount. Most stands available at retail stores are designed with newer TVs in mind, which weigh less, and that's something you need to take into account. A decent-sized CRT weighs around 100 pounds.
    -Maintenance: Even back in the 90s CRT repair techs were getting harder to find, as the screens were just starting to become passe. Everyone was shifting over to all-digital stuff. This problem has only gotten worse in the 20+ years since it took at least six phone calls to find a TV repair guy who could get to you to fix a problem you couldn't. If your TV goes to shit, getting it fixed is *not* going to be easy at all. You have to know a guy, or be the guy.
    -Urgency: Do you already have a NES/SNES/N64/Gamecube/Wii Genesis/Saturn/Dreamcast, Atari 2600/5200/7800/Jaguar, PS1/2, or og X-Box sitting around you'd like to play but can't/want the original image for? If yes, then get hunting. If not, if you don't have those old games already or aren't already starting to build a collection, then don't bother. At the very least, wait.

    i grew up with CRTs. they are fine, but unless you are playing with a lightgun, completely outclassed by LCD screens.
    zoomers are like a cargo cult when it comes to old tech.

    Shaders can be good, but you need HDR + a high refresh rate + BFI for them to actually replace CRTs. 1080p or 1440p is good enough for a CRT shader but 4K is ideal.

    i like 31khz displays but that's only for motion clarity, you'd still need filters for retro games

    Why are filtergays so obsessed with the visual preferences of other people? Its like they enjoy messing around with filter settings and talking about filters more than playing the games.

    We get it... you like CRT filters when you play old games, big frickin deal. Don't be so insecure about your choices that you need to seek validation from others that your preference "looks great". Its like going to an amusement park just to admire how all the rides look with your low tint sunglasses vs high/no tint and then leaving without riding anything.

      The only preference that matters is my own. That includes visual, musical, and sexual.
