Why? LCDs are better than they ever were before! What was disappointing was the LCD market in 2005 and 2010. Even then you were better off with an LCD than a CRT despite the minuses. CRTs are very bulky and impractical, and harder on the eyes due to the way the screen refreshes.

If they still made CRTs a 34 inch 16x9 CRT would weigh like 150lbs, draw 150-200w to run and might not even fit on the desk because of how deep they were. There's good reason that CRTs died. Despite having a few small positives (which are exaggerate since most of these retrospectives look at absolutely top of the line CRTs), they had so many more negatives.
