I am, it just seems like lcd (or any hd monitors for that case) are a waste. Anyone else here with me?

I've still got a CRT but I haven't used it since 2009. I had an LCD monitor break down on me (crappy capacitors!) and for a short while I thought about going to get the CRT, but then I remembered that it's smaller than my LCD and weighs 70lbs, so I went and bought a replacement monitor instead.

I have a couple kicking around, but the only time they get use is for setting up a system or testing/fixing someone else's when they bring it to me.

I would love to, but they are just so impractical and I don't have the space for one. I do remember them fondly though...

I tried to use the one I had in the attic for a test boot on my current system but then I remembered that it doesn't work and that's why I quit using that entire system hehe. My current system is my first non-laptop in forever.

Hell no, with prices on TV's currently, why would you?

I used to have a huge, bulky, 200 lb CRT HDTV, and I loved it. Absolute black levels. It was just so stupidly bulky I only used it until I was able to get a more modern TV.
