    Hi Folks!

    I am looking for perfect flat CRT screens (BULB Screens, NOT LED) for my xp and was wondering what kind of
    problems or connectors I must avoid.

    I have a pro view now that has the best color rendition I have ever seen on anything,
    but its been on for 17 years ha ha

    THANKS

    when I typed in crt monitors on duck search engine a lot on ebay came up, that is probably the only place left that will still sell crt.

    I have run across crt monitors quite often on Craigslist, but didnt notice if they were "flat". All crt's I have ever had or seen were with VGA plugs.
    The 1st led monitor I got was a Microtek 19" for about $800.00. That was the best image screen ever for me. About 1½ yrs ago I bought this EIZO 21" 4x3 monitor, Its better than all the rest, except that old Microtek. EIZO cost about $1,000.00 (I have more money than good sense!)

    i have a 400.00 LED that looks like tin foil and puts out 4 times UV light then the sun and weird-ed my sleep out exactly as the American Medical Association says they do.
    I like the format, but I am not a plant.

    My Pro View CRT is hypnotic, it conveys emotion and feeling and i have never been able to find a "Dot" on the screen. The flat screens are very thick with leaded glass, lowest radiation of any screen out there-Period.

    QUESTION what does 4x3 mean ????????

    4x3 = aspect ratio: 800x600, 16x9 = 1600x900, etc. (or whatever resolution you choose)
    Mine is "1", 4x3 ratio =1024 x 768 ie desktop area, ("2" disabled is 16 x 9 "fullscreen")

    4x3.jpg

    Old b/w & color crt's are were 4 x 3 aspect ratio "standard" [black bars on both sides of 'movies' on your led tv]
    majority of led & plasma tv's are 16 x 9 " "full screen"
    Movies with the black bars top & bottom are typically 2.35 x 1 'wide screen"

    Most folks dont notice this:
    4 x 3
    4² x 3² = 16 x 9 {not mathametically!}

    A lot of europeian movies are 16 x 10, very narrow black bars on both sides of screen.


    On line, I prefer my 4x3 monitor

    I yam ramblin'!!

    crts are more reliable than led displays

    My microtek led lasted almost 10 years.

    My Olevia 42" led tv is still going strong at 11 years old.
