Me too! I fear the the day it goes out and I have to find somebody willing to lug 160 pounds out of a 3rd floor apartment and all the way to Ewaste.
I don't know what to do with mine if it went busted. I keep hoping it won't, so that I don't have to drag these thing to the junkyard. Honestly, it's heavier than me!
What's wrong with CRTs? My PC has CRT and it produces black which is better than all my LCDs. LCD sucks as a technology.
The colours went washed out on the CRT. It's been more than 10 years already I have these and it becomes quite blurry. Some of my older CRTs have the very high pitch whine and the flickering which can be very annoying.
However, talking about LCD, even my 6-year old Samsung LCD colors get washed out. It can't be fixed anymore, so I have to live with it.
OLED, at another topic, is quite dangerous especially in tropics like where I'm living. Two (2) of my Creative MP3 players have these OLED panels which gets discoloured and then broken down and I do not have replacements for these anymore. Therefore, on my desk is these useless pieces of shit. I barely own them for just 1 1/2 years after purchase and I felt that it's made to commit suicide after 1 year. Daaaamn.
