Any one here will still use the C.R.T tv's for every day wathcing tv?

Any one here will still use the C.R.T tv's for every day wathcing tv? (not just for nostalgy).
I will try to use the C.R.T. tv as long as I can. After my 2000 "Sony" Trinitron will pass away I'll try to find an used C.R.T. tv still working...

I currently have a CRT Samsung 26" HDTV that is two years old. I will continue to use it until either I can no longer service it of my wife insists on a flat panel. As far as vintage sets go, I want to always have some kind of converter box even if just a cheap one so I can always use them. I have no plan or desire for a flat panel set. I like LCDs for my computer and portable entertainment devices but for TV at home, CRT is the only way to go.

Won't be getting rid of my 4 round screen color CRTs any time soon.

nothing beats a CRT for color reproduction

I have a 27" Philips that is going on 18 years old. Works like a champ and plan on using it till it dies.

Same age as my 27" Zenith that never skips a beat. Plus three other CRT TVs. When they die I'll probably replace them with a flat panel in the LR, but stay with whatever is cheap everywhere else.

Love my Sony FD Trinitron WEGA, but because of space/weight constraints, when it dies, it will probably be replaced by a LCD/Plasma that can be hung on the wall...

Bed room TV is an 1988 Monkey Wards. Have no idea of the manufacturer but it works as well now as it did new.

Yep. Why replace a perfectly good working TV. In fact you can buy really nice CRT tv's off of craigs list for little change right now. Excellent value.

We have three of them, and I doubt they will be replaced with anything but another CRT when they go, assuming we can find good replacements for them.

Two Sony Trinitrons here, the BR 20" set is over 20 years old. Both still have great pictures, and I'll use 'em 'til they give up the ghost, or I'm forced to go digital.

I only watch on crts as does my whole family. i can easily get the biggest screen I want in my neighborhood just by cruising on bulk refuse day. The crt ends up on the street with the remotes and they usually are next to the large screen lcd empty box. Eventually the lcds will find there way to the curb as they don't last as long as crts.
