Our Loewe CRT TV gives a brilliant picture and with the little amount of television watching we do (particularly if TVNZ7 finishes) it could well last us a lifetime :)

I did find the comment of brighter (garish?) colours on LCD monitors interesting though as I do find that such TVs are better suited to animated and other such CG viewing content than the natural scenery that we more often watch.

How does it cope with Widescreen (16:9) pictures though?
That is usually the problem with CRTs, which are pretty much all 4:3. If the aspect ratio is correct, it means that you are missing 25% of the picture. Many people adjust their TV or STB to squash the widescreen picture down to 4:3, and in doing so end up with "skinny vision" where everything looks very tall and thin.

It depends entirely on how the Contrast, Saturation and Colour Temperature is set up. In the shop they usually opt for very saturated colours to make the displays more eye-popping. In the process of course, the reproduction of natural scenery looks unnatural with over-saturated colours.

The Loewe is a 32" widescreen so copes with all formats, (without 'letterboxing' movies) :D

Our wides screen flat panel crt does a great job.
Takes a lot more space then the LCD/Plasma versions but until it :eek: it has a job here.

Great info site. Thanks.

I thought Sony stated a few years ago they would no longer produce Plasma screens ??

I guess LED/LCD is the near future.
