CRT's will be dying out, but I hope not 100%. 20 years ago, when the CD just started we all thought vinyl record players would be dead in 10 years. Look at it now, they're still in production, and are getting more popular again. For a relatively low price you can get very good quality players.
However, for the CRT the situation is different. You don't have a physical medium that can be played on it....The most recent LCD's seem to do a pretty good job at hiding it's problems of the beginning. The black is getting better, angles better etc.
SED should have been on the market this year.....shame it may not make it...
I still don't want a LCD as my main TV, (also because I don't watch it that much
There is still a market for CRT's now. I can still buy (very cheap) CRT TV's at 20" (€80 !!!) and use them as great arcade monitors here, but for how long
They are at the extremely low level in the market here now. I guess markets like Africa, south-america etc. may still be wanting CRT's. But in the end, it will be more expensive to produce a CRT. Also think of shipping. One CRT takes the space of 10 LCD's.
It's a shame, but we will witness the end of the CRT over the next 10 years. SOoooooo, grap them while you can. The good thing is that (for Europe) people are literally giving away their CRT TV's, which make great arcade monitors
Maybe we will also see the flexible displays develop further. Than we put a foil over the CRT's front and have (almost) the same picture
