    Man...I read all about the HD CRT downsides to pre 480p era gaming but now I see someone selling the elusive Sony KD34XBR960. Does anybody think this TV is worth getting?

    If you're just gonna use it with retro stuff, no not really. But the 960 looks good with 1080i content, and 720p upscaled to 1080i didn't look half bad. I haven't seen it natively ingesting 720p but IIRC all the Sonys downscale to 720p to 480p then linedouble.

    Better off getting a nice big SD Trinitron with Component video connections if you are going to play 240p games.

    I am at the point where I no longer use my WEGA for gaming. If anyone is in the Denver area, please let me know as you can have it FREE. It is a 32" monster!

    Yeah for SD stuff i'd skip the widescreen wegas or almost any of the widescreen crts and go for like a 27" inch 4:3 crt. The only widescreen crt monitor i'd consider is the BVM 32 inch and that's only because it does 240p really well with the added bonus of doing higher res just as excellent if not better. I will say that newer gen games look beautiful on a high quality crt monitor and maybe the KD34XBR960 is great for HD games, but for 2d probably not as great. Not to mention that those widescreen crts weigh about 200lbs.
    Insert funny sig here.
