Default Interesting comment from sales re: tubes

So my 35" 16:9 Toshiba tube (yes believe it or not they actually did manufacture these for a short time) finally died on me. Whew did that weigh a ton.

Anyway, I had always thought PQ on tubes was hands down the best. I was in a store looking at LEDs and Plasmas this past weekend and commented to the sales clerk that while it was bulk, I will be sure to miss the PQ of a tube and he said "oh these will blow tubes away". Is that just a sales line? Can an LED/plasma ever measure up to and or surpass the PQ of a tube?

I think that is a matter of opinion. CRT tv has been made for many years, ironing out all the little bugs it had, like horz/vert. hold, color etc. The new flat tv's are just that new. They still do not have the PQ I have come to expect from a tv. My son has a sharp aquos. I wanted to watch a movie and ended up taking it back to my CRT. The PQ on leds is less than I want. Plasma is better. I think they need more time to develop and work out stuff, like black levels. Of course new tech. is coming out with OLED and others. The whole thing was a crt was impractical being so big. Big tv neeeds HD. Me, I think they have a ways to go before they can say the PQ is "better" than CRT.
I still use a Sony XBR HD CRT 16:9. It's huge But I love it!

Back when the post was made, it was definitely a sales line. Since then the new flat screens have improved well beyond the old tubes. Also back then they were comparing 32" 16:9 HDTV tubes to 50" LED and plasmas, so naturally the smaller size picture will seem clearer.
