Used a pair of Trinitron P1130s for a decade or so. Moving to LCD was mostly a step down, until I got the Philips BDM3270, which has more accurate color and higher resolution, though it has almost nothing on them for gaming purposes.

Every display technology has downsides. When the first flat panels came out, people flocked to them in droves largely because they were the new thing, but others held on to their old premium CRTs, because they knew that the image quality was better, especially in terms of motion resolution, response time, variable resolution/refresh rates, contrast ratio, etc.... Today's flat panels are certain much better than they were in 2003, but still well behind quality CRTs in many areas, whilst superseding them in others.
