Ooh, yes, I missed that.  I don't miss their size either.

I'd have to look at the particular devices in question to say anything
relevant.  Certainly a good modern flatscreen will beat an old beat-up
unmaintained CRT, but that doesn't say much about the relative merits
of the two technologies.

In my experience, CRTs do that too, and do it better in every respect:
they recover faster after a change, they mangle non-native-resolution
signals less, and they handle differing sync details better.

It is to me too.  It's one reason I keep a few CRT monitors around.
