I do a lot of retro gaming, with my SNES, PS1, and N64 regularly hooked up, and I've started to wonder if it's worth grabbing a CRT for these systems.

They really don't resolve well on my HDTV, with a lot of artefacts like ghosting, and noticeable input lag. I've kinda just learned to deal with it for the last 9 years or so, but recently I've started to wonder if I'd be better of "rescuing" the next decent CRT a relative goes to throw out, and giving it a new home as my retro gaming setup.

Has anyone else here shifted back to CRT for older systems, and was it worthwhile?

Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.
