I don't know off the top of my head, but most any 22 inch CRT should be able to do that; and if it is an aperture grille it would likely have
either a late model Trinitron or Diamondtron tube.

Anonymous 01/15/16(Fri)02:54:41 No.52431725

Of course, but it depends on the person. I personally can't use anything under 85 Hz on a CRT because I notice the flickering and it gives
me a headache after an hour or so. Most people I have talked to are fine with 75 or 85 and don't need to go higher. 60 is really a no-no on
CRTs, though, which may come as a surprise if you have only used LCDs.

another 1600x1200 on craigslist that I gave to my brother. It was a pain in the ass to figure out how to calibrate it right though.

I'd like to say though that the whole "You'll get true perfect uncrushed blacks thing is basically bullshit. You get pure black when
you're displaying a pure black square in a pitch black room but anything amount of light or color diffuses over the whole glass
screen and turn your black sorta greyish. Pic is exaggerated by the camera, but you do get a clearly visible halo around shit
displayed against a plain black screen. Still better than an lcd screen. I use this for movies more than my 3000:1 static contrast

I got a Phenom II X4 940 for 20 €, I guess you could get something better. At least a 500-600 series card with "GTX" in its name.

old station. I stopped using the FW-900 because it went out of range and was unfocused besides. fixing it would mean
setting up a pc just to use the special cable and software to edit the internal settings and hopefully get it right. also opening
the case to turn tiny knobs where if you fuck up you could potentially kill yourself with electrocution. I actually have another
271 KB JPG one, but it has a nick in the glass.

CRT is fucking amazing as a display tech when everything is working right, not so much when they develop their little problems. I went back
to plain TN (though good TN) and went triple monitor for desktop and I don't regret it. I don't miss the great blacks and colors since I watch
all video content on the fancy plasma I got, which is close to as good as CRT. I'm probably not going to go back, I'm looking at IPS, OLED,
plasma now. prob going to sell these to someone.

>widescreen CRT
My main drive for wanting to use CRT was for higher gaymz hz, but the main game I wanted to play wouldn't output anything but 16:9, so I
just said fuck it. It's exceedingly common among games today.

you can just play with black bars. CRTs that are widescreen and not televisions are pretty rare. I can't think of a single 16:9 monitor, only
TVs that max out at 1080i. there are only a handful of widescreen CRT monitors and they're all 16:10, still, they support 16:9 resolutions.

>Did graphic design exist in the crt era? Did artist use them?

Yea, umm.... so what specifications should I look for in a crt for visual editing?

Anonymous 01/16/16(Sat)02:00:54 No.52448511

>you can just play with black bars
No, I can't. Even if I got the game to output at 4:3, it'd be a reduced size, though I would have made the compromise for the increased Hz.

It's fine though. My 42" LCD at 60Hz will do.

Sure, it'd work, but there's literally no advantage to it these days. Better color repro, I guess? but the number of people seeing your work on
CRT is going to be minuscule. Get a nice IPS panel instead.

Anonymous 01/16/16(Sat)02:07:21 No.52448579

theoretically a really good plasma or OLED (hell even an IPS, VA, or that laser shit) can look better than the best possible
CRT, but it would have to be extremely high-end. and you still run into the problem of every pixel-based display tech that
the resolution is fixed so you always have to scale non-native sources. it's also very hard for those technologies to be as
fast as CRT. even the fastest TN monitors still have persistence problems compared to CRT.

you want to get info from display forums like hardofrum and AVSforum. generally though start out by searching for anything branded as
trinitron or diamondtron, those are the best ones. like >>52448511 said though, the advantage is speed, for art work there isn't much point

you mean you just wouldn't want to play like that? most games can still use 4:3 resolutions and some CRTs will accept many signals that
aren't their native aspect ration and will auto scale or black-bar them.

Anonymous 01/16/16(Sat)02:08:40 No.52448596

See if you can force the resolution with your graphics control panel. I managed to get my 1280x1024 monitor to 1600x1080

>you mean you just wouldn't want to play like that?
Yes. The display I was trying to play on was just a hair shorter than the 24" LCD I had sitting right next to it. So rendering a widescreen
image on this CRT produced a usable picture that was about half the height of what I get on my LCD. Tiny.

> most games can still use 4:3 resolutions

50/50. The one I wanted the extra frames for didn't. Others I have tried didn't. Generally, FPS will, but I don't play FPS as much anymore.

>CRTs will accept many signals that aren't their native aspect ratio and will auto scale or black-bar them.
You have to run the games in full screen to bypass the windows display manager vsync. The game would let me choose 4:3 or 16:9
resolutions, and the game would add in the letterboxing in-engine to achieve the 16:9 look if you chose 4:3. It was almost playable if I set it to
display a distorted 16:9 picture by choosing a 16:9 resolution in-game and turning off display scaling.

sorry but this is 2016.

only a hardcore PC gamer and need that instant reaction time of a high speed refresh rate with no room for error should be the ones
bothering with CRTs.
Everyone else that just uses their computer for normal tasks should be on LCD by now. You can get a used one dirt cheap on Craigslist or
eBay if you can't afford a new one for $80...
The electricity savings going to an LED monitor that you sit in front of a lot is a good enough reason to switch. Not to mention the bigger
screen sizes and resolutions available.
And no CRT whine either (omg, hated that on dying tubes)

I kept my CRTs because the refresh on LCDs seriously gives me motion sickness.
I have a first gen PSP and straight up can't play anything 3D that isn't a fixed camera (granted 1st gen had a REALLY bad refresh).

Take off the shell and there will be a smallish black box near the back with knobs on it. The best way to get it good and sharp is to display
some text and adjust the knobs while it's on.

Do not under ANY circumstances touch anything attached to the tube, do not tap the tube, do not touch the tube, don't touch the thing at the
end of the tube or you are very very likely to die. That tube operates at 10A 300V and will kill you instantly, and tapping the tube could hard
enough will make it implode, and will scatter glass everywhere, including your eyes. TAKE EXTREME CAUTION.

There might be a way to abuse the blanking intervals or something to gain more vertical scan(various crt monitors can be pushed to higher
resolutions/refresh rates this way)

Some games don't work like that m8

And also who said this was exclusive to games?

It'd be cool for TV Shows/Movies
Like for example you watch a 16:9 movie and then later you watch a 2.35:1 movie and the display shapeshifts so there's no black bars and
aspect ratio is preserved at the same time
