CRT Monitor - ridiculous prices!

(1/3) > >>

sigh:
I bought a Sony GDM-FW900 widescreen CRT monitor many years ago for around £200. It's use was for my 3D animation work and Open Office. I then quickly realized that it was awful for text as it was all blurry. I left sitting around doing nothing for a few years while I worked using an lcd monitor instead.

I then started using it for gaming a few years back on my PS4 via an HD Fury X4 and it's been serving me really well. It has nice black levels, an array of different resolution options and the lagless play on fighting games is a welcome addition. However:

NO.....just no.....

I think someone else may have posted this, but lol... Off by a couple of zeroes...

I like the phrase "IMAGINE HOW GRAN TURISMO 7 (PS5) / FORZA MOTORSPORT (XBOX SERIES X) WOULD LOOK ON THIS MONTOR!?"

Surely for that price he could have organised a picture of both games running on the monitor. In fact he could throw a PS5 and an XBOX into the bargain and still turn a profit.

Yeah I posted this. I can only assume the seller was breathing deep on their crack pipe and hit the zero key too many times when they listed it.

sigh:
It's insane! Don't get me wrong; it's a really nice monitor, but even knocking off  a "zero" on that price and I would struggle to support such a price tag.
It also weighs 7 stone.
