I've put this in the gaming section as this product is really only of interest to those who have older retro consoles and ideally want a CRT to use with them.

Probably one of the last sources of a new CRT set. It features a pure flat tube and built in dvd recorder. It's a basic Chinese set but with a good feature set. As far as I know there is no freeview tuner just the old style analogue type.

Stock running down low now so last chance I think. I have no connection with seller.

Important retro features.

1. Works with lightguns etc from older consoles.
2. Features a RGB scart input.
3. Can record gameplay onto DVD+R, DVD+RW discs. Not sure if it will record in RGB quality or composite only though.
4. Can be made multi-region for dvd playback
5. 60Hz frame rate compatible.
6. Gives improved images with older consoles over flat screen panels
7. 0ms latency. Has no ability to process images. Literally the signal goes in and immediately goes to the guns of the tube so many games will play better and be more responsive.
8. A rare brand new CRT so the tube has its full lifespan ahead of it.
9. Provides a headphone socket.
10. On screen menus and service menu access for altering screen.
11. Works with RF output from earlier 8/16 bit computers and consoles.
12. Compact size meaning great for a retro corner.
13. Side AV terminals for composite/audio.

Ideal for;

Playstation 1 and 2
Nintendo NES, SNES, N64, Gamecube and wii
Megadrive, 32X, Mega CD, Saturn and Dreamcast
Original Xbox
plus many other devices.

Also other later hardware possibly running emulation that will benefit from 0ms latency for the emulated games.

Doesn't look that flat!
Would it run Kodi?
Is there some weird time warp on HUKD?

Someone posted a deal for VHS tapes the other day that went hot.

(Joking aside, I heard that CRT are better for some gaming that requires low response times. You don't get that with most modern TVs now.)
The flat screen ones dont work well with Light guns, which is one of the main reasons to own a crt
Heat added because I love anything retro games related.
why is this in gaming?

The latency is mostly caused by the image processing of the television, something that you can usually turn off, or use a dedicated PC or console input setting that tries to bypass the processing and reduce latency. its the same reason why the old light guns wont work, they relied on a crt refresh rate that had a predictable frequency, something that isn't as predictable in modern tv's.

Takes me back to the 70's. I used to wear Flares.
I'd just like to thank you for the thorough post. Might be a bit niche but I can see the need.
will this have hdmi arc?

will this have hdmi arc?


that would be a big fat no, lol
Agreed. Anyone who uses MAME or console emulation need to have a CRT. The games simply look better.
Assume this will support NTSC over composite. S-Video would have been a nice touch as well but can't have it all right.

A LOT better, CRT screens had natural anti aliasing built in.
Probably wouldn't support Duck Hunt Zapper

you buy a gramophone, and try to convince everybody that it sounds better than tape?
Ideal for Rob the Robot on the NES
He wont work on LCD screens

Or you could just get an upscaler with HDMI output for your current TV.
alternatively head to your local car boot sale over the weekend, or check freecycle
Sega Dreamcast, House of the Dead & two light-guns............that was the true definition of multiplayer gaming
I have reclaimed my 15 inch Panasonic flat screen CRT from my little nephew for this exact reason! Going to hook up N64 and gamecube to it....never did complete zelda....

​Agreed. Great post but small screen size for gaming. Try multi-player on mario kart on a 15''!
If you're convinced you can see a latency of single digit ms you've lost the plot.

Actually for an old TV BNIB this is great value... Classic xbox running Coinops and you are set !!

Head to youtube and search Coinops 7 - (8 is due soon)
Go to your local dump and find one for free

That's pretty much what we all did back in the day though. A real challenge would be 8 player Bomberman on the Sega Saturn on a 15" screen

No. Its flat
That's like a babies toy..
For Dreamcast it would be better to get an old monitor, use the VGA output for improved resolution.
What is it?

Neither of which would be likely to get you a new set though.
