>Got a decent CRT TV in January. 15" Toshiba from 2004 or something like that.
>HDMI to CRT converter
>Plugs into laptop, looks great, runs great
>Only costed about 40$ + 20$ shipping, the ebay shop raised their prices to 99$ for the others of the same model in stock shortly after.
<Can't adjust overscan so any reason not video/retro console related has disadvantage.
On one hand, I feel like I got really lucky. There are computer monitor CRTs that go for twice as much as I paid for this at absolute lowest. Can't afford space or get a proper computer monitor. I would like to play PC games that don't design UI for overscan, but this isn't the worst at least. Just a pain that Thief's health pips goes offscreen mostly and Daggerfall has a lot of cropped off screenspace.
Running vidya streams, youtube, and glorious subbed Bluray quality 90s anime rendered at 480p looks really great, though. For its job as a TV, it's really good. I kind of want to take an old mini-PC and set it up with Linux to send commands to watch streams and videos on demand from my PC and pretend it's a 90s in-service TV.
