I used to hate CRTs for all their faults, and never thought I would go back to using them. But now I have several. Trying to get all my retro machines looking correct on LCD was just too much hassle.
Maybe it's down to emulation of retro hardware in Windows, but I've had no problems. However, I can understand that users of real hardware would have problems if they're using LCD panels with their Amiga 500s (for example) - I've seen YouTube videos of the displays that do look very messy and drained of colour.
