Those who have owned CRT know that display technology took a big step backwards in motion performance when we moved from a bright impulse-mode display (CRT) to a relatively dim sample-and-hold display (LCD).
Time flies. Soon that demographic will be seriously diminishing. I feel it will be more a matter of "this is the new feature you have to have because we say so". The fact that the benefit will be real is going to be completely coincidental.
Although, I have to admit I don't have a clear picture of when CRTs ended being THE market. Beginning of the century? Earlier? Later?
Seriously. AVS is a place where you go to learn to be unhappy. - Bear5k
