Works for me. Typing this on my 19" NEC MultiSync FE950+ CRT from ... 2001? I was very unhappy when CRTs started being phased out in favor of LCDs. Or actually, I didn't give a hoot that CRTs were being phased out - but it bothered me that CRT research
was terminated in favor of LCD research. It has only been in the last year that I thought the quality of any LCD monitor was close to my CRT - and this is not
a professional-grade model, nor do I find it perfect in any way! But even though still images finally look good, the huge flaws of fixed resolutions using a too-small pixel pitch, very low fixed refresh rates, input lag, flicker (which most people claim not to exist, because they don't understand how an LCD works), bad viewing angles *or* being kind of too slow, horribly implemented RTC done by marketing departments instead of engineers, "extended color gamuts" that don't even fill all of the color triangle of normal backlights (let alone a CRT's), and so forth... mean they still are not ready. LCDs have just not quite been ready ever since I first saw them - so if the industry moves on to OLED (like they have promised for many years now), which at least has the potential to supercede CRTs in most important aspects, I will be very happy. Then again, every mini-OLED I ever see (like on cell phones) looks like crap, so I'm not holding my breath.
I'd probably prefer the thin-panel multicathode CRTs, if anyone ever makes one.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Field_emission_display
