The young people can hear the CRT wine and sometimes it annoys them enough 
that they shy away from the vintage stuff.

Plus 4:3 LCD TVs are good for the 8 bit micros if you move them around a 
bunch, or for testing :-)

I sold my non-working Sony PVM cube TV, but wouldn't mind one that works 
someday in the future.
