I know this is a three year old thread, but I find it interesting since I just today, 11/23/12 bought a 60 inch LED to replace my 40 inch SONY XBR CRT. This CRT was the largest retail CRT ever made. It still works nicely but the largest wide screen it can display is 36 inches and not as crisp as today's LED's. I would move it to the basement if it wasn't for it's 300lb weight. I'm going to list it in Craigslist just to have it moved out. I think the CRT is 480i HD. It would be perfect for gamers. 12 years ago I think I paid $2800 with the extended warranty.
