How come these CRT TVs are selling for so much money? $72 - 180, plus
or at least including substantial shipping cost. I thought they were
worth no more than $25 by now, and that they could be bought locally
(after testing) at Goodwill or yard sales or craigslist, or that the
money could pay half the cost of thin screen. ??

Here's another batch
These ar called Magnavox CRT Televisions and the page I gave first was
Magnavox Not Supported CRT Televisions
What do you suppose the difference is....
Oh, "Smart TV Features: Not Supported"
But I'm sure the second batch doesn't support Smart TV either. Does
any CRT support it? It's just that those who listed the ones in the
second batch didn't bother to mention what iiuc everyone knows.
The weird thing is still I have one of these Magnevox 20"
They want $169 and I only paid $99 for mine, new in the box.
Maybe I should list it and buy a 32" flat screen in a super bowl sale.

If it works, it works.
A friend moving abroad gave me one yesterday. The thing is so big, I
thought the screen was 23 or 25" but when I dl'd the manual I saw that
it was only 20. it's still awfully big.
But it has a DVD player and a VCR. For complicated reasons, I haven't
been able to play either for a while, so I'm happy to have it.
I have two broken CRT 20" and one 14" that the sound goes out on once in
a while, and I have to hit it to make the sound work. Just like in the
old jokes. BestBuy now charges 20 or 25 to take them so there is only
one place that will take them for recycling and that is 20 or 30 miles
away in the next county.

You can go to advanced search and select "sold" The high seemed to be
"Disney" with ears for ~$150 but $50 or so is common plus shipping. A
few went for pennies ... plus shipping.
I didn't look past the first page.
Asking price isn't selling price.
Looking at some of the descriptions they state good for gaming. LCD TVs
don't have a screen response as fast as a CRT.

that's the way to do it.
Until I bought the new cell phone, I didn't own anything that cost more
than $100 that wasn't more than 10 years old.
And my "new" magnavox tv, it turns out it eats videotapes.
It plays DVDs well, but darn, there were ads for other movies first. I
*paid* for the DVD but still they make it play ads first. I think I
could FF through part of it.

My brother's dog would go nuts with some TV images, like birds. My dog does not notice a cat right in front of him on TV, but he can spot one out the window a block away and goes berserk.
What I think makes the difference is that some breeds have a foveal streak and some a foveal spot.
I have both CRT and flat screen TVs but my dog can't see either.
