Why? Is it blur or what?

Motion blur and scaling are no problem, as far as I can tell (flight sims do work fine).
Before that, I used to have a grey Belinea LCD screen (sorry, can't remember model number).

CRT is WAY bigger and larger LCD screens obviously are bigger as well and that's sure worth something!
