Default Re: Remember the Vacuum Tube Era

10 years after the phasing out of CRT, and still, nothing can compare...

LCD is too slow.
Plasma is too sensitive.

I wish they'd bring back projection sets. Last I heard Mitsubishi and Pioneer were discontinuing them. The only decent TV is the Panasonic VT50/VT60 and those cost a fortune and are difficult to source outside the US. And then even if you have onw you have to be constantly vigilant that you don't leave it on a channel with a corner logo or else the image burns in.
...Their plight, in fact is even worse, they don't realize that they're cantonists, they think they're free men. What a slavery that is - to confuse slavery for light, and bitter darkness for bright light.
