Retro CRT TV: Love It or Leave It?


As televisions (and gadgets) get thinner and thinner, LG is bucking the trend and releasing a retro-style CTR television (that stands for cathode ray tube . . . you know, old school), complete with dials, rabbit ears, and a 14-inch screen. For now, they're only available in Korea and retail for about $216.

I like its retro feel, but think it's kind of funny that the same company who announced a super-thin digital TV at this year's CES would release a brand new, old-school TV. What do you think?

While i dont necessarily agree that flat panels are a "big flat eyesore" considering I love the way mine looks, very sleek and mod, but crt tvs are very useful for lots of things, and stand up very well against the test of time if from a respectable brand. The main reason I switched to a flat panel HD tv is because with newer video games and the demanding graphics of newer gaming consoles, you can no longer play a game to fully enjoy it on a crt tv

I like the idea of having a television that is part of the decor rather than a big flat eyesore.

Vintage is a powerful trend that keeps getting bigger and bigger. Old school more than anything, evolves and transforms into new styles and mediums for art and technology. I think its great!
