The high end trinitrons are pure sex. A million times better than any of your normal sub 900 dollar LCDs, and even then these things can be a lot better for gaming than those +900 displays, or even image editing.
no lcds sold well because they are far more practicle for the average user, 99% of all screens will not be used by a twitch gamer requiring 120hz or by image proccessing professionals requireing the most perfect colour, they are mostly used by normal people checking thier emails and typing in bloody office, For those people an lcd makes far more sense they take up less space, less power and are readily available.
The top end IPS screens are better now for editing than even the top end crts were, or are at teh very least that all the proffession graphics people i know now use IPS, But they dont get the refresh rate that some people desire.
I have an old trin in storage somewhere, which I used to use but it didnt come with me to uni for practicallity reasons and I was "stuck" with an lcd and sure it annoyed me a bit to start with but im pretty glad i weened myself off it, I dont really notice ghosting and my ips screens are way worse than tn panels for it. I think some peoiple are far more affected by it than others.
End of the day 120hz tn screens are cheap readily available and practicle, are there 2 models of CRT that are better for gaming, yes but sugesting everyone should get them is like trying to get everyone to buy IBM model M's because they are the best keyboard ever made, its not practical and for most people its not even true
Hell I suspect 90% of people would not notice the difference between 60hz and 120hz.
