post your CRT battlestations boys
fact: crt is objectively better than led
Kek I have that picture saved too, the middle crt is what I have wet dreams about. 100 pounds of pure cancer inducing high quality picture.
I'll just have to make due with my shitty Sylvania f74
dat bezel tho
If they weren't so heavy, and didn't have chubby thread bezels I would agree, until then I'll stick with the "flat monitors"
The prime mode of the 2070SB is 1600x1200 @85Hz. That's 624,000 more pixels than your shitty Gateway.
Also, a higher refresh rate.
Also, also, no sample and hold blur.
You know you want one, anon ~
>that pathetic attempt to use a wide wallpaper
mine - 480i does not bother me, honestly, and the computer is a bit more modern than the case would appear
Wish my desk was strong enough to use more than one of my CRTs
I don't know off the top of my head, but most any 22 inch CRT should be able to do that; and if it is an aperture grille it would likely have either a late model Trinitron or Diamondtron tube.
Not a hipster. I just detest sample and hold.
That's what braces are for.
agreed. Now i've gutted it (most of it's insides are now in a much bigger generic tower that's going to be used as a server. Inside this tower is an eMachines Mini-ITX, as well as it's Athlon II X2 3 gHz CPU, 3 gigs of DDR3 ram, 500 gig 3.5" SATA drive, and 5.25" DVDRW, along with an old BFG Edition GeForce 250 GTS. I've got a brand new 680 watt PSU powering this all. It'll do me for another month, til i can afford a DX11 card to throw in this. But i'm keeping the Pentium 4 sticker on it!
Ya I thought CRTs were the shit too, until my eye doctor told me I aged my eyes by 15+ years by working on a CRT monitor for two years.
That shit burns your eyes.
Now granted every type of monitor is bad for your eyes, but modern technology doesn't scorch it as much as CRT
Of course, but it depends on the person. I personally can't use anything under 85 Hz on a CRT because I notice the flickering and it gives me a headache after an hour or so. Most people I have talked to are fine with 75 or 85 and don't need to go higher. 60 is really a no-no on CRTs, though, which may come as a surprise if you have only used LCDs.
Old station from early 2015, fucking thing turned green and I'm not really sure what to do.
experiencing the inexpensive bleeding edge works of technological art of yesterday is more exciting and educational than dicking around on the overpriced low end facebook/vidya appliances of today tbqh family
>How do you get your bird to "like" you?
Pay attention to him. Talk and whistle to him. Feed him with your hands. Shower him (a squeaky clean spray bottle with warm water), they usually love that.
>And doesn't he poop everywhere?
N/A. Birds shit everywhere all the time, that's just what they do. Larger and more intelligent parrots can be trained to use a designated shitting spot by patient owners.
Man, I need to dust and wipe down my Obsidian.
Also, I like Mugi.
I plan on getting a custom made wall scroll of the Moogs to replace that camo blanket at some point.
>I aged my eyes by 15+ years by working on a CRT monitor for two years
toplel, the fact is LCDs bombard you with more photons because the backlight must remain at a constant brightness to maintain peak contrast
You little princess, "muh bezels" is why displays are in such a bad state with uniformity problems and weak driving circuits, display manufacturers are laughing at idiots like you
obv hipster like pretty much all /g/ ... wearing fedoras while get pooped in the mouth by birds in the basement.
The only time I saw crts being useful was at a lan ~8 years ago cause CS 1.6 players wanted to have high refresh rate in order to react faster... placebo if you ask me but it was already outdated back then.
>see glorious high-res CRT
>you only have a CRT that can only do 1280x1024 at 60Hz or 1024x768 at 85Hz
Feels bad to be me.
okay, rather soon ten years i've switched to a LCD, it was in 2007 for a 1920x1200 24"
Enjoy your cancer.
>b-b-b-but muh no latency
Enjoy your unnoticeably faster cancer.
>b-b-b-but muh le retro geek old-school arcade I like counting monitor lines because I'm a huge faggot
Please kill yourself.
I've never had use for computer CRT monitor, but I used quite a few TV for retro- and PS2-era gayming, as well as Laserdisc home theater.
Picture is gross because I didn't clean, but you usually don't see anything because I have blackout curtains. Keyboard is broken so I'm using the on-screen one. Don't care enough to get it fixed or buy a new one.
Dat [email protected] tho. I usually have it in 1920x1080 for 1080p content and use the 1440p k-screen for 720p. I also put in 480p for dvds and such. The flexibility with a nice CRT is really great for more reasons than just "pure black." It was only $10 bundled with another 1600x1200 on craigslist that I gave to my brother. It was a pain in the ass to figure out how to calibrate it right though.
>tfw yr liter of lube is empty
are there separate pins for the top and bottom halves of the picture? The effect is that there's a middle line that's super-bright while the bottom half of the image is non-existent.
I'd like to say though that the whole "You'll get true perfect uncrushed blacks thing is basically bullshit. You get pure black when you're displaying a pure black square in a pitch black room but anything amount of light or color diffuses over the whole glass screen and turn your black sorta greyish. Pic is exaggerated by the camera, but you do get a clearly visible halo around shit displayed against a plain black screen. Still better than an lcd screen. I use this for movies more than my 3000:1 static contrast tv.
No but I do guzzle down copious amounts of cough syrup and watch vaporwave idols on it

Not him, but looks like a Cockatiel breed. Good beginners bird.
They're also Stallman approved.
I'm jelly of ops pic a bit. I can't wait till I have room to use this. I've been working my body hard so I can get strong enough to move it around (77 lb). I managed to pick it up and carry it into the closet
old station. I stopped using the FW-900 because it went out of range and was unfocused besides. fixing it would mean setting up a pc just to use the special cable and software to edit the internal settings and hopefully get it right. also opening the case to turn tiny knobs where if you fuck up you could potentially kill yourself with electrocution. I actually have another one, but it has a nick in the glass.
CRT is fucking amazing as a display tech when everything is working right, not so much when they develop their little problems. I went back to plain TN (though good TN) and went triple monitor for desktop and I don't regret it. I don't miss the great blacks and colors since I watch all video content on the fancy plasma I got, which is close to as good as CRT. I'm probably not going to go back, I'm looking at IPS, OLED, plasma now. prob going to sell these to someone.
My main drive for wanting to use CRT was for higher gaymz hz, but the main game I wanted to play wouldn't output anything but 16:9, so I just said fuck it. It's exceedingly common among games today.
you can just play with black bars. CRTs that are widescreen and not televisions are pretty rare. I can't think of a single 16:9 monitor, only TVs that max out at 1080i. there are only a handful of widescreen CRT monitors and they're all 16:10, still, they support 16:9 resolutions.
I need a monitor for graphical editing. Would one of these work?
>Did graphic design exist in the crt era? Did artist use them?
Yea, umm.... so what specifications should I look for in a crt for visual editing?
>you can just play with black bars
No, I can't. Even if I got the game to output at 4:3, it'd be a reduced size, though I would have made the compromise for the increased Hz.
It's fine though. My 42" LCD at 60Hz will do.
Sure, it'd work, but there's literally no advantage to it these days. Better color repro, I guess? but the number of people seeing your work on CRT is going to be minuscule. Get a nice IPS panel instead.
theoretically a really good plasma or OLED (hell even an IPS, VA, or that laser shit) can look better than the best possible CRT, but it would have to be extremely high-end. and you still run into the problem of every pixel-based display tech that the resolution is fixed so you always have to scale non-native sources. it's also very hard for those technologies to be as fast as CRT. even the fastest TN monitors still have persistence problems compared to CRT.
you want to get info from display forums like hardofrum and AVSforum. generally though start out by searching for anything branded as trinitron or diamondtron, those are the best ones. like >>52448511 said though, the advantage is speed, for art work there isn't much point anymore.
you mean you just wouldn't want to play like that? most games can still use 4:3 resolutions and some CRTs will accept many signals that aren't their native aspect ration and will auto scale or black-bar them.
>you mean you just wouldn't want to play like that?
Yes. The display I was trying to play on was just a hair shorter than the 24" LCD I had sitting right next to it. So rendering a widescreen image on this CRT produced a usable picture that was about half the height of what I get on my LCD. Tiny.
> most games can still use 4:3 resolutions
50/50. The one I wanted the extra frames for didn't. Others I have tried didn't. Generally, FPS will, but I don't play FPS as much anymore.
>CRTs will accept many signals that aren't their native aspect ratio and will auto scale or black-bar them.
You have to run the games in full screen to bypass the windows display manager vsync. The game would let me choose 4:3 or 16:9 resolutions, and the game would add in the letterboxing in-engine to achieve the 16:9 look if you chose 4:3. It was almost playable if I set it to display a distorted 16:9 picture by choosing a 16:9 resolution in-game and turning off display scaling.
sorry but this is 2016.
only a hardcore PC gamer and need that instant reaction time of a high speed refresh rate with no room for error should be the ones bothering with CRTs.
Everyone else that just uses their computer for normal tasks should be on LCD by now. You can get a used one dirt cheap on Craigslist or eBay if you can't afford a new one for $80...
The electricity savings going to an LED monitor that you sit in front of a lot is a good enough reason to switch. Not to mention the bigger screen sizes and resolutions available.
And no CRT whine either (omg, hated that on dying tubes)
I kept my CRTs because the refresh on LCDs seriously gives me motion sickness.
I have a first gen PSP and straight up can't play anything 3D that isn't a fixed camera (granted 1st gen had a REALLY bad refresh).
>CRT monitor has "low radiation" written on it.
>CRT monitor doesn't have "low radiation" written on it.
Take off the shell and there will be a smallish black box near the back with knobs on it. The best way to get it good and sharp is to display some text and adjust the knobs while it's on.
Do not under ANY circumstances touch anything attached to the tube, do not tap the tube, do not touch the tube, don't touch the thing at the end of the tube or you are very very likely to die. That tube operates at 10A 300V and will kill you instantly, and tapping the tube could hard enough will make it implode, and will scatter glass everywhere, including your eyes. TAKE EXTREME CAUTION.
i wish i had that mulder/scully poster fuck.
If this many people fell for the CRT meme I wonder how many fell for the korean IPS monitor meme
>there's a caution sign next to the max setting on my bidet
Research your CRT
There might be a way to abuse the blanking intervals or something to gain more vertical scan(various crt monitors can be pushed to higher resolutions/refresh rates this way)
Some games don't work like that m8
And also who said this was exclusive to games?
It'd be cool for TV Shows/Movies
Like for example you watch a 16:9 movie and then later you watch a 2.35:1 movie and the display shapeshifts so there's no black bars and aspect ratio is preserved at the same time
