Re: Digital Foundry - CRT better then 4K OLED

It's probably too small an amount to register on the geiger. But because there is NO SAFE quantity of radiation, the dose and its effects are cumulative over a lifetime. All those years in front of CRT playing quake, it has increased the odds of us getting brain/ eye cancer. :lol:

Re: Digital Foundry - CRT better then 4K OLED

I understand what you're saying, but I can't buy back my time. Might as well enjoy the best CRT while they still work and I'm alive.

My point prior is only to emphasize that one should use-CRT-responsibly. :lol:

There's also the radiation risk, minor x-ray emission from CRTs. :mrgreen:

Re: Digital Foundry - CRT better then 4K OLED

In terms of eye strain, Most CRTs will generally peak @ 60-100 nits full blast white screen due to Power limiter. People use LCDs at 120nit, 200nit + will definitely feel the burn more after a few hours. CRT also softens the image somewhat, reducing high-frequency information could lead to reduced p...

Re: Samsung's new 240hz VA

Indeed. IPS image quality is terrible. It looks completely flat and washed out. There's no depth at all. We started the journey with 600:1 TN panels, IPS only gets up to 1000:1 on average and at best 1300-1400:1 on big panels, Disgusting. Va, chugging along 2000:1, then 3000, now ~6000:1. If it were...

Re: Digital Foundry - CRT better then 4K OLED

@ bill, Visual judgement of image quality is not meaningful if none of those devices are calibrated. CRTs and LCDs typically run a different tone curve as well depending on the era of the crt, era of the lcd. As for the photo comparison, print photos only have 300-500:1 contrast, it could look close...

Re: Digital Foundry - CRT better then 4K OLED

I am a Proud owner of an FW900 and i1d3 pro. I've gone through the whole spread of CRT tweaks and calibrations. There is simply no way CRT can match the Vividness of LCD for Bright scenes. On their own, without side by side, CRT looks pretty good, but place it next to a VA or even crappy IPS, the di...

Samsung's new 240hz VA

The new CRG5 240hz VA panel

Is it legit new tech, or just marketing ?

Haven't seen much news/reviews about it since Blur-Chief named dropped several months back. :lol:

I love deep blacks.

Re: Digital Foundry - CRT better then 4K OLED

The Video doesn't talk about a "Disadvantage" of CRT tech. I am 100% behind CRT gaming. However, it is not an appropriate display for all games due to very low ANSI-Contrast. Ansic is simultaneous contrast of the brightest white and darkest black each occupying 50% of the total screen area. On LCD /...
