Wow!  I don't, but I remember when I got my 21" IBM Trinitron to upgrade my 17" monitor many years ago.  I thought it was the ultimate in monitors.  I almost wiped out carrying it up the stairs it was so heavy and unwieldy...

I still have a couple of small CRT monitors up in the loft as spares, that's about it though.

lol I used to have that exact same monitor. It sat in my closet for years after I quit using it because I dreaded carrying out to get rid of it. >_<

Yeah, I read the wiki pages about them because I thought old consoles were the only reason anyone would want one but apparently there are other reasons and industry which use them.

All 3 of the TV's I currently use are CRT and I have 2 others just setting around. 1 of those was used strictly for the kid to play games on, but he doesn't use that one anymore.

 

Of the 5 desktop computers I have,  3 are still using CRT monitors.

 

All of them work just fine, so, if it ain't broke, don't fix it!! Not a darn thing wrong with them. :)

I have an old 19" Dell Trinitron that I picked up for free a few years back. I don't use it, but keep it around because it's awesome high resolution. I also have a few older Macs (iMac and eMac) that have built-in CRTs. Again, I don't use them very often.

Last year I finally pitched out the 19" Dell CRT crap monitor that was still hanging around, it was good when I got it in 04, but it was quickly replaced with a half decent flat panel, they're useless in the consumer market and slowly dying off the few manufacturing applications that still haven't upgraded

Only glass CRT left in the house that's still in use is a little one in my daughter's bedroom. Got an old ViewSonic 22" under the test bench, "just in case", not that I'd want to lift that thing anymore at my age. Everything in the house/office otherwise is all LCD panels.

I have a 21" Panasonic CRT TV in my bedroom  :shiftyninja:

Using for nothing... just it's there I hope to find a way to get rid of it.

Better picture actually then poor excuse for HD my Asus has.

If I had known, never would have bought my Asus, sight unseen.

Two CRTs left - 27" Sanyo (guest bedroom) and 32" SONY Trinitron WEGA (family room) - that's it.

 

The FPTVs are 32" Emerson (kitchen/breakfast nook), 40" Sony BRAVIA (my bedroom in the basement), 32" Samsung (upstairs sitting room off the master bedroom), 40" Samsung (master bedroom) and 55" Samsung (basement media room) - the last two are "smart" TVs with wireless capability.  Both tower PCs use FP displays - 23" and 24" Acer flat-panels (XH233H.bmid and XH243H.bmid - the only difference between them is screen size).

The living room in the original part of my house has a antique wood cabinet that houses a 32" CRT that still works nice and goes with the decor of the room. The renovation has the living room with the HDTV and 5.1 set up

Have 4 large crt monitors and a Sony crt HDTV in storage, and a 14" crt preview monitor in a video edit bay, but otherwise it's all panels. Lots of them.
