One excellent CRT TV. Have been using is at least 3 days a week for 3 to 5 hours a day. The cover design has little or no flaws. No protruding parts that can break off. No grooves that are hard to reach when cleaning the cover.
The image has remained sharp and with deformations. The on screen interfacedesign is basic and easy to understand without use of the manual (which defines good interface design!). A lot of the more detailed functions I never use. They're 'handy' but a shut-off delay ...well, having it without needing can be fun too.
One note though, the sensitivity of the PAL-B signal reception can cause problems when trying to hook up a computer with the CRT as a second monitor. Use a high quality cables & scart plug, it can make the difference between an acceptable image and an image without color.
Anyway, since Plasma and LCD have steadily been pushing the CRT towards extinction for the last (ca.) 5 years, yhis particular model still hasn't given me a reason to switch to a flat screen.
Ofcourse there is always a specification wishlist:
- a video-put option
- a more powerfull remote controle. The signal is weak. Controling the TV from 9+ meters becomes a problem.
