Despite their amazing response times they were. I can still get headaches from displays with really bad PWM, but for the most part I don't unless I'm looking at monitors for 18+ hours which does happen.Crt were absolute trash. Haven't had a headache due to monitors since switching to led.
CRT's were terrible. They had bad geometry and noticeable flicker compared to nicer LCD's. Aside from the response times and better blacks, they weren't good. The Trinitron was the gold standard and all of them had a clear visible flaw in the image and yet it was praised time and time again. They also generated a ton of heat and weighed a metric ton. I had some of the best CRT's that ever existed and you couldn't pay me to go back.I have to know, do you use the gentle glide tampons as well?
It's only been in the past few years that I could live with LCD's. For me the response time was critical. I love CRT's.CRT's were terrible.

And the ghosting was pretty bad too when LCDs were just becoming mainstream in offices if I remember right.The early 13-15 inch LCDs had extremely terrible input lag, very low refresh rates, and were mostly using VGA inputs. It took a long time for LCDs to catch up to CRTs in a lot of ways. People compare current LCDs to CRTs and forget about passive matrix LCDs and how terrible the color was on early LCDs. You could have 2 of the same LCDs side by side and the colors could be wildly different between them.
WoW documentary turned into CRT discussion
Anyway I started in vanilla like many. I'm still playing, and actually even raiding, but I'm going to quit in a couple of weeks when my sub expires.
The game is too much repetition.
Repetition, repetition, repetition.
Raids, dungeons, daily quests, Torghast, the other activities. I'm not autistic, I have issues with repeating things.
So I'm going to give New World a chance, play that until it starts feeling repetitive/boring, quit then find something new to play. There will always be something.
I still haven't touched the new ESO expansion or finished my season char in BDO. I also want to give the new SW:TOR expansion a go because I find the single player/story rather fun.
Yeah I am in the same boat here with WoW, Ive been playing since 04 and have played nonstop and never cancelled my sub for all that time....and I am thinking about finally doing that. My guild offically died this expansion, my sever is basically dead, and I am burned out on farming old content and transmog. You are correct that the game has become a grindfest of repetition, and everything you do for a patch doesnt matter for the next patch...you then start over with the grind again. The only patch that seems to matter now is the last one of the expansion...by then they seem to have fixed a lot of system issues and the game is mostly out of beta by that point. Then the next expansion starts and it repeats itself again...the game seems designed to waste your time in systems then being fun to keep you playing...
No, it wasn't. It was the maximum refresh rate for the resolutions I was running, which were the maximum the monitors could do. Looking at this type of monitor caused me severe headaches if I did it for long enough. I can go considerably longer on even a 60Hz LCD without the same discomfort. However, mintors or TV's with bad PWM will cause me headaches rather quickly.your refresh rate was to low.
You aren't telling me anything I don't know. I remember as I was buying these things and using them we they were new. When I was an onsite service tech, I used to sit down and adjust every customer's display to 85Hz or better for whatever resolution they were running. Most were at 60Hz and I have no idea how they tolerated that. I'm well aware that CRT's have a sweet spot and it wasn't necessarily their maximum rated resolution. That said, I was running some of the best CRT's ever made and I wouldn't put up with less than 85Hz at any resolution I used. As for the glowing and ghosting effects in low light conditions, this never really bothered me as much as some people. I ran IPS displays for years after the CRT days. It has to be pretty egregious to be an issue for me.Many CRTs support resolutions with too low of max refresh rates to prevent screen flicker. This is why CRTs were marketed with a optimal resolution that was often far below the max resolution wile sporting a higher refresh. Etch CRT is different but a good rule of thumb is no less then 70hz, 75-85hz if not higher being preferred.
That being sad I'm a little amazed you did not state anything about phosphor glow/ghosting effect you get from a CRT in low light settings. That always drove me nuts with CRTs. Noting funner then crowing in a under ground cavern in fallout NV only for everything on the screen to gosh like the response time is over 100ms.
