options are good. still using my 21" Viewsonic CRT monitor. 6 years and going strong. happy to replace with a skinny CRT replacement. if the price/performance is good.

Great news. It’s interesting to see how some giants pull back, while others innovate.

A few things I’m curious about, but am too ignorant of the technology to deduce. The first is energy consumption. I know LCDs use less electricity…will these new slim CRT’s use less than a conventional unit? Second, the article states a 30 inch TV would be 16 inches deep, but what about something smaller like a 19 or 21 inch? I’m curious how much difference it will make there. Anyone have a clue?

My 19 inch is 20 inches deep btw.
