The seller must be crazy, $200 for 24" CRT is WAAY too much, you're getting a Screen that's 24"-27" 1080p LCD with HDMI with that money these days.
If i were you i'd ask a mod to delete your post because you have no idea what you are talking about.
That CRT has been capable of running resolutions that LCDs just coming out do... for the last 12 years WITH good contrast and image quality all at over 60hz. not only that because of the LCDs work they don't work as well with 2D things like classic games. like AOE 2 (orginal) or StarCraft 1 or Command and conquer Tiberian Sun etc etc.
So before you go flaming in thread do some research first. That monitor is not ordinary SUPER DUPER ULTRA quality CRT it has been know to be used in special studios, like video game studios or Pixar or Dream Works. Also that last I heard those go for 400 bucks.
I know I'm flaming pretty hard, however, you are right about 1 thing technology is constantly moving forward and ONLY NOW is it catching up high caliber CRTs like the FW900. Some what soonish we will have some really nice LCDs that might compete.
That said OP I see some eBay listings where says buy is responsible for shipping/freight. I think there may be services in which pay that will pick it up and ship it you?
oooorrrrr like I said earlier find a low/mid grade trinitron for free locally. I know at work we have some and are more than likely gonna throw them away (though not with out their issues)Edited by cdoublejj - 4/12/13 at 5:35am
