Anyway, yes, CRTs are vastly superior in picture quality to LCDs at anything other than native resolution, and even there LCDs mostly win out on non-picture aspects like footprint and power consumption.

OK, thanks for the explanations. Yes my CRT is a Sony Trinitron TV.

I've a Sony PVM (14M4E) and frankly I prefer the 1084. The image on the PVM is sharper, too much for my taste at least, whereas it is soften on the 1084, like a kind of natural antialiasing, but still sharp enough for pixel art which is what I use my Amiga for.

However, the problem with 1084s is their fragility. I broke 3 since 1993. OTOH, Sony PVMs look indestructible (and weight a lot !).
