I’ve been doing most of my gaming on a CRT TV or a CRT monitor for the past couple of years…. and there are several reasons why. We’ll discuss the reasons. There are 3 questions you need to ask yourself to determine if you should get a CRT:

1. How much do you care about fluidity of motion?
2. Do you care about the picture quality?
3. Is nostalgia important to you for old gaming?

There are several other questions we could ask, but I think those are the primary things we should go over when talking about CRT monitors.

I used a 27″ Sony Trinitron CRT TV, a Magnavox 23″ CRT TV, a 27″JVC I’Art CRT TV, and a Gateway VX1120 CRT monitor. The TVs were all hooked up with component (RGB) connectors and the monitor was hooked up using a Delock display port to VGA adapter.
