It is faster to send a packet to Europe than a pixel to your screen

Bias has nothing to do with it. CRTs do almost everything better, except size and weight.

To send mail to Europe from the U.S it will take 2 weeks or so. If an LCD was that slow then nothing would be on my screen now...

We're Americans! We don't quit just because we're wrong.
We just keep doing the wrong thing until it turns out right.

My monitor has a 1ms response time. I call shenanigans.

If you're using an LCD, then that's a made-up number.

Response time is just one of many numbers LCDs scam you with. Along with contrast ratio and (in the case of HDTVs specifically) refresh rate.

From Boston to London it takes about 17.5ms, so he is technically correct (assuming it is a direct line). Dat speed of light

And power consumption. And no native resolution.

As of the second decade of the 21st century, everything else is so close as to be negligible as far as I am concerned.

CTRs are awful. They occupy a ton of space, weigh a ton, and are far more damaging to the eyes. The better response time isn't even remotely close to being worth it.

looking at a screen does not damage your eyes
