Signs your CRT is dying? - Page 3

post #21 of 23
I remember my first computer... an old pentium 166 mhz with a turbo button. i had a 17 in CRT monitor with it. It probably weighed about 45 lbs. Yeah, it went up in smoke, literally.

Dont feel bad, i ran a CRT for a long time. id say get a lcd monitor only if you can get a killer deal. i got a 17" BenQ in 2001 for $289, which was a pretty good deal at the time. Just recently I got an even better deal, a SyncMaster 245BW 24" for $400 bucks at Costco. My advice is shop around til you find a bargain, then pounce on it.

The last CRT I had that was slow to start, ended up needing a multi attempt to get it to turn on and then. POOF.. a bright light and a scar right in the middle of the screen. So long old and great 21'' CRT. you were a great screen to game on
how much did you have to spend on a LCD to get the same quality? i tried useing a cheap dell lcd to game on and the response time and ghosting were so bad it was had to even tell what was going on.

i think my crt is going it too. every line and letter number, mouse pointer, has little ripples coming off. it sometimes goes away temporarily. i have loved my crt for gaming it is very fast. any of u know what might be causing this ripple effect?
