    Trinitrons rule even now, too bad Sony is pushing LCD's down our throats...
    But be aware that aging can be a problem - trinitrons lose focus and color saturation with years, so be honest. ;)

    Trinitrons give much clearer, distinct dots than traditional CRT.

    Reason for that is, each red, green and blue phosphor is a rectangle - each dot on the screen has 3 of them, making a square dot.

    Trad CRTs have the RGB phosphors in a triangular arrangement, usually called a triad. These overlap, rather than having a distinct boundary.

    Colours might fade, brightness might dim, but the underlying geometry means they are still give sharp distinctions between on screen dots.
