I kind of manage an apartment building. €100 - €125 is roughly the cost I'd assume for having some service company remove a CRT TV from the basement and dispose of it.
So, CRT computer screens are somewhat less heavy in that size, but that's roughly their worth in the real word: Minus 100 to 125 €.
Of course, I'm nonetheless happy to own three smaller CRT monitors and a token vanilla CRT TV.
But, if and what you'd pay for that, is utterly your subjective preference. So, don't regret your choice. Case to be made for that sale:
- CRTs have a limited runtime. Hardly used is surely a pro.
- So, that sets it apart from "just any random CRT". The moment it has anything special about it, if the seller doesn't want to get rid of it, he's in a bit of a fix: If he's going to keep it for the right buyer, he may as well charge real money for it.
There is a certain bonus to late, quality 15" today:
- They're not that bloody heavy and bulky.
- They run 1024 x 786 just fine and any game that will do more at decent fps is probably modern enough to support 19" TFTs or widescreens.
I used a 15" Hyundai from 1997 for well over five years. 1024x Windows was ok.
Refresh rates were fine, since it was rated at 70 kHz horizontal, that was pretty decent for a 15" back then.
Below 70 kHz, it will not do flicker free at 1024 but let's face it, you're not going to do a whole lot of spreadsheets on it? 😉
