"It's 2018 and millions of people all around the world are throwing away their cathode ray tube television sets in favor of flat-screen TVs.  Sadly, retro gamer Dallas Cox, a big fan of CRTs, is now replacing his first tube TV...with an LCD???  Is Dallas finally going with the flow and upgrading to a modern display?"

I think that's your best video yet!  I laughed, I cried, I marveled at the production values.....

I've kept one CRT.  A 13 inch beauty with a VCR built in.

Wow! Thank you so much for those kind words! My goal was to mess with the viewer's emotions and showcase my editing skills in a video discussing something I'm quite passionate about. The 1991 Goldstar I bought for the video is a 13 inch, but sadly it doesn't include a VCR :)

I think mine is a "Funai", which is tremendously fun to say.  "Foo-Nigh". 

I do love the flat panel TV's for their light weight and space saving.  I keep that one CRT mostly to be able to play light gun games.

That makes sense. As long as I use S-Video, retro games look good on my LCD. Too bad I smashed it XD

Wait...how do you use S-Video?  Some kind of mod to your systems?  I just use the old yellow/white/red composite.

If the system supports it, I do. As shown in this video, I have a 3-in-1 NES, Genesis, and SNES console by Retro-Bit. It supports S-Video and plays every game I have perfectly (the Genesis sound is actually good!)
