How does an HD CRT compares to a modern high end display?

 

How does a HD CRT tv compare to today's HDR OLED TVs, maybe even high-end Plasma, and 8K TVs? Brightness output, contrast, color, and motion performance. Compare from HDR sources such as 4K Blu-ray, streaming, and gaming, also from lower fidelity upscaled sources and older media. Could be a good video for @LinusTech to do. Would love to know how an HD CRT tv or monitor stacks up against modern TV tech.

 

It would be cool to see some discussion about what you lose (like HDR and higher resolution support) vs what you gain (no need to upscale, better motion resolution, no input lag)

100% worse for anything that has sound. I know crts have those fancy sub 1ms response times, but that high pitched

eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee would make it unberable to game on.

I am still TechWizardThatNeedsHelp, just less of a mouthfull.

@HelpfulTechWizard i gamed on many a CRT back in the day and never had coil whine so bad it would be heard over the game / computer itself. I have two LCDs in my office that make way more noise however... bad power supplies.

My lcd tvs are fine, but all of the crts ive seen recently have a bunch of coil whine, and i get headaches.

CRT monitors and HD CRT TVs are 31kHz or higher which is way above what humans can hear.

Most SD CRT TVs are 15kHz which you can hear if you aren't too old.

 

 

 

Good CRT monitors have really good motion response, ~0ms response time, high refresh rate, really good colors, no native resolution, good depth (picture looks like 3D), good contrast (in a dim room, in studio lighting CRTs and Plasmas look washed out).

Cheap CRT monitors usually can't do more than 60Hz on higher resolutions and the colors and sharpness might not be as good. 

And worn out CRTs can be quite dim, washed out and blurry

 

HD CRT TV's usually have a bit of lag caused by scaling etc. and they are only 50Hz or 60Hz. Even 100Hz CRT TV's only do frame doubling to get the high refresh rate.

 

It would be nice if Linus could make a video of Sony GDM-FW900 which is a 24" 16:10 CRT with 2304x1440@80Hz "native" resolution. At 1920x1200 it can do at least 95Hz.

They are pretty hard to find, especially one that doesn't have a lot of power on hours
