Don’t need any more Tvs buddy, I charge to take them away now, that was a limited time offer.
Funny you should mention that actually as I had a 14” Sony Trinitron outside in the rain, snow etc for over a year down our yard, pulled it out last month, stripped it, cleaned it, rebuilt it and it’s still working.

I am now after CRT computer monitors which I will pay for, the more the better sir!

Soon I will pay someone to wait outside the tip for me to retrieve all the computers people are stupidly disposing of.
I pay for junk, the tip don’t.

Feel free to tell me to mind my own business, but why do you want them?

Surely flat screen monitors are better in almost every way. I was glad to see the back of the damn things!

I am a master at restoration, flat screens are rubbish unless using new hardware, why would i want an IBM PS/2 with a flat screen monitor?

New pcs will not run old games or software either, original hardware is best to be used unless of course you emulate

Today we live in a throwaway world, technology doesn't last as long as it once did nor does it have as many components, theres hardly anything in televisions these days.

Hook a NES up to a flat screen tv and then hook it up to a bang & olufsen mx7000 CRT and you will see the downside to flat screen.

Dont get me wrong here, i use both, plasma in the front room, led in the back room, crt and led in the office, lcd projector in the bedroom, plasma in the garage/workshop for repairing pcs, but the old hardware is what i use the old monitors and tv's for, its also a hobby of mine saving them from extinction and restoring them when works quiet.

Unless of course they are phillips, lg, saisho, ect, rubbish i am not interested in then that gets thrown or used for parts

Fair enough. Perfectly good reasons.

But why do you prefer a CRT? I think modern flat screens are higher resolution, faster refresh rates and better colours Also they don't suffer from nonlinear scanning so a circle really is a circle not slightly egg-shaped as it is on many CRTs. Also they are not going to suffer from falling emissivity from the cathode in the gun, or emit X-rays. And they are so big and clumsy.

Years ago, on a whim, I went looking for the Quay in Connah's Quay and a bit further on from the quay found myself in a small industrial estate. One of the businesses was - I think - reclaiming gold from them and they had a pile of monitors and computers about fifteen feet tall! I have no idea if the company is still there, but I imagine the reclamation value of a single monitor must be tiny, so they might be open to an offer to part with one. Go carefully if you visit, though. The heap was guarded by a pair of the most vicious dogs you've ever seen! If it's still there you'll have no difficulty finding it. Just head for the sound of furious barking and snarling!

For the same reason you wouldn't replace this with a modern LED dashboard if you were restoring it.

Well, we clearly differ.

I don't see a computer - or a car - as something I would dream of restoring. They are things I want to use, and performance and convenience come first. Best wishes anyway.

Yes there are some people out there that reclaim precious metals but the quantity you would get and the purity is not worth the effort given the time it would take, it is a long boring process that requires certain chemicals and a LOT of time, filtration and repeated processes, not something i would be interested in.

I don't prefer CRT as a whole, i prefer to run certain software/games on a CRT, if i set up the two side by side and showed you a comparison you would see the difference, also i only use 4:3 format in CRT not 16:9, i use a specail program much like a test card to get 100% perfect orientation of the picture.

I have a 1983 bang and olufesen beovision 7702 here which runs 240p @ 60hz in full RGB, it has crystal clear picture and the sound quality blows all other tvs away, quite a feat for a tv of that era, i don't use that , thats just a showpiece, i use a 1999 bang and olufsen mx7000 with custom firmware (yes its a CRT), again sound quality is out of this world.

The amp i use is a 1976 pioneer sx-850, it blows away most new things from today, cd player from 1984 marantz electro magnetic floating motor. Most things i use cost thousands of pounds originally, top quality stuff, not rubbish.

Moral of the story, just because its old it doesnt mean its crap, the cd player would cost you £150, amp £600 (if you managed to find one), tv probably £75-£150 depending on firmware, theres a method in my asking for this old outdated electronical stuff, i know what i am doing exactly wink
