What was the highest resolution XGA standard CRT ever mass manufactured?

The largest CRT I ever had was a 21" Mag Innovision XJ910 (native resolution of 1920 x 1440) and I bought it used because new it way too expensive. It was as heavy as a boat anchor and was a space heater, but it had blacks that were black and no color banding problems or input lag issues.

24" Sony FW-900 I guess.It said to be 2304 x 1440 max.

But good luck with finding some higher-end FD trinitron in good condition and for acceptable price.I wouldnt take it even for free.

Amazon has a "refurbished" Sony GDM-FW900 for sale @ $2290!

Some of the comments indicate the users couldn't find video cards that could support the maximum resolution of the GDM-FW900.

What's interesting to me is that my old Mag Innovision XJ910 CRT used to noticeably heat up my room, but according to ASUS's specifications for the PG-279q, the difference in power draw is only 40 Watts.

It's possible that you, like many of us, ran your CRT at a frequency higher than the "recommended" one, which is probably what they base the power draw on.

I used to have a 21 inch 1920x1440 CRT. Getting rid of it for a wide screen LCD was great. Why would you want one now?

Superior contrast, black levels, and color accuracy.

I'd only add noticeable color banding. In games a bright color (e.g. a light) against a dark background creates noticeable color banding. Then there's input lag, which was non-existent on my CRT.

Except when it decreased to 400:1 when the darkest parts were next to very bright parts, which made the blacks gray.

When properly calibrated, like any display, but mostly limited to sRGB.

The first monitor i bought myself back in 2004 was a 21 inch CRT Samsung SyncMaster 1100DF which had a resolution of 2048x1536 at 75hz which was massive for the time
Thing was heavy as a beast but i loved it and had it for about 4 years before it became so blurred that it was impossible to see anything on it

Replaced it with a Syncmaster 245B which was only better because it was widescreen
