Color wise it's the same as IPS or better, but the big difference is brightness/greys/blacks.

Since CRTs can shut off electrons from coming into an area of screen, you get true blacks/greys.

LCDs are unable to do that because the backlight cant be shut off, it's why if you run a fullscreen black picture on an lcd you see the backlight bleed cause the screen is never truly off.

>>
>>69315377
Valid point, but it's likely the difference we see in the photo, the black contrast on the LCD and CRT, is pronounced. I mean, I can see the LCD having a bleeding back light and CRT showing a better black, so the photo and my phone's display shows it well.

Consumer grade CRTs were limited to the sRGB color space, so no, they just can't beat modern tech. Even iPhone 7 sporting an IPS panel has better colors and contrast than your antiquated garbage under normal lighting. It never ceases to amaze me how retarded CRT fags are.
>>
>>69315377
You can see it happen when you make your entire screen black. The effect above then becomes clear as day. Small areas of blackness look ok on LCDs, but it cant handle full screen blacks or any large black areas.

Cancer isn't even caused, everyone has dormant cancer cells. For whatever reason people will assert that any and everything causes these cells to become active and multiply.
From the sun to wifi radio signals.
Smoking is the most obvious one and it's instantly invalidated when you see multiple 90 year olds who have smoked their entire life.

Like almost every disease, it's purely genetic or arbitrary mutation. You're either going to die from cancer or not, the only influence is in stopping it, not preventing it.
While this may not be correct, nobody can disprove it either. Nobody fucking understands this shit. If they did people wouldn't be dying from it.

OLED is just the first tech that is a real upgrade from LCD and everyone wants to cling to it.

Is MicroLED not just an inferior version of FED/SED? Is this just to avoid patents?

I still don't know why LVD (laser displays) never took off since it was supposed to be cheap. Same concept, different range. You could use LVD for giant displays and SED for smaller ones.
>>
>>69316544
A (color) CRT consists of 3 electron guns that beams red green and blue light to the same spot to make a certain color
If they don't converge correctly, instead of getting a yellow dot you get red and green dots that intersect like a Venn diagram.

It's when your 3 electron guns are not in alignment and they don't converge correctly to give the colors that was intended you end up with something like this

>>69316668
CRT convergence was set at the factory to be perfect but over time it can get out of alignment
In some cases it can be solved with the monitor's OSD but if you can't it's either live with it or service it
I've yet to find a CRT with perfect convergence all around

It turns out I'm now using my old CRT to edit my photos since none of my LCD screens can show the lower and higher RGB levels, also compared CRT with a printed photo and the CRT looks closer to what lab printed.
Also my old CRT has the gama at 2.2 while my LCDs have gama all over the place depending on color.
Not to talk about how black is much darker on CRT too and color, oh color is much better on the CRT too.

Of course I don't own any IPS screen, I think those expensive monitors would easily blast away that old CRT, also LCD is much sharper (obviously), but seriously that CRT is amazing to edit photos if you want a cheap monitor for graphical work on a tight budget an old CRT seems the best way to go.

>>69317754
What do you mean by better blacks? They don't even commit crime?

It also means you have a fixed pixel grid, something that isn't an issue on CRTs.

>>69315171
Yeah that LCD is from 2001 tho.
>>
>>69315244
You can buy it in the year 2020.
>>
>>69316709
Something like this could actually be fixed by a software solution, by sending pre misaligned Color channels to the monitor and the monitors own misalignment would actually fix the image, you could do the same for geometry issues etc. You would need to do it on a driver level though with calibration profiles made using some type of software plus camera solution. In fact using so.ething like this could probably give a CRT better picture quality than it ever had

idk, I haven't compared them, a buddy says budget IPS screens are better than the best CRTs, some people on /g/ and IRC says the oposite idk who to trust since I haven't compared, I only know my CRT beats away all my cheap TFTs and NTs at everything but resolution.
>>69319713
Yeah, but that's the lowend ones, a 1080p CRT most cost a fortune I assume
>>69319759
As long as there's a niche audience there's always a niche market for everything so I'm sure there are, but that results in extremely high prices due to economy of scale
>>
i was of the impression that resolutions around 2megapixels was standard for CRTs from about 2000 onwards
>>
imagine what crts would be like if we didnt stop producing them in 2005
>>
>>69319899
TNs would be long dead for their garbage colors and contrast.
IPS and VA would have actually evolved.
240Hz monitors wouldn be considered common tech.
>>
>>69319819
Nah, I can feed a 1080 lines signal to my CRT but that's just because CRTs don't have pixels, they don't have a fixed resolution like LCDs do, I can feed a 1080 lines signal to my CRT and the image shows on screen but due physical factors like the shadowmask and idk other factors? limit the actual resolving power of the screen.
I'm sure there are people here who understand this better
>>
>>69316099
Just go to detroit then.
>>
>>69319929
>IPS and VA
would be as dead as TN
>>
>>69319899
Considering that at that point they were optimized for mass manufacturing, they'd be pretty cheap and close to peak of how good they are, while flat panels would be expensive backlit garbage. Who knows, based on image quality, flat panels could end up being a niche product just for laptops, but normies want their shit to be flat, regardless of how good it is.
I wonder if this would make OLED and similar panels more popular, as they actually stand a change against CRTs when it comes to image quality.
>>
>>69315532
At the end of the CRT life cycle you could get top models for cheap cause everyone was jumping ship to get to inferior LCDs
