Dude, totally. SED is the bomb. Hm, "PlayStation 3 on my SED" has a nice sound to it, no?
Yeah, I know what you say, I can't believe too that LCD big widescreens have taken off sooo much. Plasmas had such an intangible, soft, rich, velvety quality to it. Get a good 1280x720p Plasma, 30inches or something, and sit back with a bit of HalfLife2:Episode1. Now that's real viewing pleasure.
Nonetheless, you obviously are very used to your CRT. I had 3 dead pixels on my Sony, my mum badgered the service centre people until they caved in and got a new panel part shipped in from Japan. Took two months, but now the 17" Sony LCD is dead-pixel free, and like I said, PC games are rich, exciting, smooth and crisp. The latest PC games increasingly have better support for higher definition pictures like 1600x1200 and widescreen support as well, AFAIK. One has to check on a game-by-game basis though what the support is like. I'm happy the games I like have excellent smoothness and responsive quality at 2xAA 16xAF 1280x1024. And HDR+AA, as implemented brilliantly (pun intended!) by Valve's HalfLife2:Episode1. As I've said many a time, on my AMD64 Venice OC'ed 6600GT OC'ed.
If the size or curvature of the CRT doesn't bug you, then certainly, hang on to it, and enjoy your CRT until SED shows up. Or maybe there are some delicious 720p plasmas out there
but not in the 19" range though
