    When I needed to get rid of my last CRT TV about four years ago, despite it being in perfect condition and my willingness to give it away, there were no takers. It went to the junk man.

    When my 22" Sony trinitron broke down I got a 28" wide-screen Sony WEGA set for free from a local woman on Freecycle. I'm very pleased with it.

    In my house in Canada we still have the 19" Sanyo I bought in 1980. I watched last winter and it still works.

    Me. Still have a 27" CRT in the living room and a 19" in my bedroom. They still work, why replace them? I am not about to dump stuff just because it's not bleeding edge technology. When they wear out/die then I'll upgrade. I don't watch that much TV anyway.

    I still have my old CRT tv. I'm rarely home, so I really don't need anything else. 90% of the time, I use it to watch DVD's.

    I have a Aiwa crt stereo tv in my computer room. The picture and sound are amazing. I also have 2 LCD tvs. One for the bedroom and one for the living room. I have 3 crt monitors and one LCD monitor for my computers. I prefer the crt on all. The picture quality is better and easier to keep clean.

    Yup. The one in my bedroom is CRT. The one in the family room is a big LCD. I'll keep both until they die!
