Waiting for local sales is preferable to shipping -- it costs several hundreds to ship overseas. Ouch.

I have a tentative local loan from spacediver, but I'd love a permanent specimen (a model matching one in flood's cherrypick list) as i now have the laboratory space for a permanent 'reference' CRT.

well like
crt's are great and all but for purely testing purposes, i don't see the benefit of specifically using a top of the line crt.

like
all crt's have 0 input lag
persistence/motion blur for crt's doesn't depend on refresh rate in any way
some crt's might have shorter persistence phosphors but i don't think any particular one is outstanding

I've been wondering: maybe the clarity of CRT (apart of its technology) could be related to having a "glass"?
I think it could be that because of an article i read some time ago. I never liked glossy TFTs but with the CRT i don't see it as "reflective" as these glossy screens that are almost mirrors, and on that article seems it has a glossy layer but better (no idea why don't do more with these).

As you know a lot (as you showed on last pages of the thread :D ), maybe you know about this too :) .

ya crt's have a film with an antireflective coating (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anti-reflective_coating). (totally different from the antiglare on most lcd's). it's similar to the coating on eyeglasses.

if you look a specular reflection from a crt, it will appear blue because of this.

I've seen that type of coating on camera lenses more often than eyeglasses.

I'd like to see a LCD with a glass (and the coating you comment) and see it improves somehow (and i'll be easier to clean :D ).

By the way is there any easy way to find if a CRT is good (without looking for its specs on internet)? or it is a list somewhere of good CRTs? (just in case i find one to know if it is worthy) ;) .
I guess that it must have flat screen-glass, but apart of that i have no idea :P .
