These days, you might be hard-pressed to find an older CRT TV or computer monitor in the average home â€“ most people will have adopted newer LCD or plasma-screen TVs, which are lighter, thinner, and take up considerably less space. Keep searching though, and youâ€™ll be surprised by how many CRT monitors and TVs are still floating around!
Popular in offices all over the world due to their lower cost, CRT screens are highly valued by competitive gamers and film enthusiasts! Thatâ€™s because the older screens are much better at handling multiple resolutions, and can display colours far more accurately than their newer counterparts. Theyâ€™re also less prone to input lag â€“ the tiny fraction of time the TV takes to respond to input â€“ which is especially important in computer and video games that demand rapid responsiveness, such as fighting and shooting games.
