As moving day for me approaches in 3 weeks.. I'm faced with a hard decision, at least to me it is.. While I have a couple nice LCD TVs, I have one last CRT TV, a 25 inch Samsung in prefect working order and other them some dust, great physical shape too.
I'm moving to a smaller apartment, and have trained apes.. I mean mover doing the move. And I'm so trying to get rid of stuff I don't need any more, but torn on taking the TV to Goodwill or keeping it. I thought about leaving it in the apartment lobby and put a note on it saying 'free".. but I know there's at least two dumpster diver/scraper types in the building that would grab it and cut it up for the copper coils, not caring it was a perfectly fine TV.
I've played my Atari games on all my TV's Defender is amazing on a 60" screen.. but these game when made for CRT screens. And I hate giving up that too..
So this is a babble out loud post.. and maybe get some comments for people that have faces similar dilemmas. I know giving up my last CRT TV won't end my Atari gaming. But it was a expensive TV back when it was new.. Well cared for. Maybe wanting to keep it is one more nostalgia cling to the past.. I keep leaning more toward keeping it even with more limited space at the other end of this move. (and try to avoid watching the mover carry it to the second floor apartment with no elevator..)
