I work at Currys, and I am a salesman, mostly on computers and televisions... and I tell ya, I would take a LCD over a CRT any time. LCD generally has a much better picture quality in resolutions terms. CRT does produce alot more colours but has a poor resolution to display them in. You can get a perfect picture on an LCD, where as a CRT the picture can be distorted, zoomed and stretched. The picture is sharp, there is no glare and no picture burn, something that CRT's can get if left on too long.

Also, with HD on the move, it's better to be watching High Def on an LCD TV than a CRT TV. Not because the quality would be better but there is hardly a choice for HD CRT set's. And the only one we seem to have in the store is a crappy, Samsung model.

So, if you are looking for a new TV, go for LCD and not CRT. It may still be good but they're slowly dying out and being replaced by LCD.

And Jimmi, I don't think there is a CRT set which supports DVI, just HDMI. They still make CRT monitors but it's demand isn't as great as LCD. Go to any Currys or Comet store and you will see LCD's and Plasma's (less of the latter) spread throughout the Television department, but only a small section for CRT set's.

Well, I'm guessing some people are going to say whatever they have is better.

I just upgraded from using a 21" CRT monitor to just using my laptop 17" TFT widescreen. I was going to use the CRT monitor plugged into my laptop because the screen is bigger. But I have to say compared to the laptop, looking at the CRT is awful! Its blurry, the colours are less vibrant, and it puts a strain on your eyes after a while. With the tft theres none of that, so I don't think I'll be switching back any time soon.

Linda Barker was a fucking whore. During that terrible promotion, all you saw around the store was her ugly, shit-eating grin staring at you wherever you went. We do have some terrible promo's and adverts, and we're so strict that I'll probably get fired for saying that.

Anyway, lolzulater.

I saw her once in Manchester. A week later I saw Jade Goody and piggy face from Coronation Street. Still trying to work out what I did wrong.

Simulated Anti-aliasing looks horrible in my opinion. I've also found that the sharpness can be controlled eiher in settings or (if you're a DIY kinda person) you can take off the back and there's often a dial, right next to the high voltage warning sign .

CRTs are cheaper, have a higher refresh rate, have a better contrast ratio, have a wider range of resolutions (rather fucking up anything other than native res), and have a wider viewing angle.

So I'd say CRTs are superior in just about every way. But I prefer LCD since they don't weigh half a fucking tonne which is handy for a laptop.

I'm glad I don't ever have to sell TV's to people like you, one lady asked me why I should buy a LCD instead of a standard TV. I pretty much said the opposite of what you said because it's so easy to sell to dumbasses. I lost the sale though because we didn't have any in stock, bitch.

I mean we've all grown up with CRT's, but they're being replaced in the retail market and slowly they'll start creeping up on the Antique's Roadshow. RIP CRT LOL.

LCD! Not because they're smaller or look better, but because when you poke 'em, they go all gooey. At least the old school ones did. I loved those things. I used to go to computer stores just to screw with those. The sales clerk would come up and say "You can ruin the screen by doing that", and I'd reply "Oh. Sorry, then". I'd wait for him to walk away, and start poking at them again, even harder.

CRT... in general the life of a CRT is much longer, there are so many bad LCD errors like dead pixels etc, those can come at the most simple poweroff. Also i feel more control in CRT, and visual its easier to adjust (taking its digital).
