I guess it's personal preference, but I have a 20L4 and -used to- have a consumer set and I love 480i on the 20L4. 

PS2 and Gamecube stuff has never looked better imo! 

 

480i gamecube? No chance! Mostly all the ntsc library is 480p and that’s were a vga monitor/multiformat bvm comes in. Your eyes would melt if you saw f-zero gx running in 480p on my Sony F520!

I'm sure it looks absolutely spiffing on your prog scan BVM, but I don't have one. 

Never looked better as in, this is the best I've seen this 480i content.

I don’t have one either, but I am always on the lookout!

I see digital foundry have finally realised that crt is better than lcd..

 

 

‘Motion handling on CRT is on another level compared to modern technologies in that every aspect of every frame is rendered identically, to the point where even a 768p presentation may well be delivering more detail in motion than a 4K LCD’

That sony fw-900 was the exact monitor I used to have. Makes me sad thinking about not having it anymore. Used to run all sorts of different systems on it; 360, ps3 and even prog scan ps2 games etc. I remember being quite pleased with myself for using it to play shadow of the colossus on the ps2.

A quick snap off my rough and ready CRT, 21 inch Sony trinitron I picked up for£40 and a variety of consoles and controllers. Also have a Mister FPGA sat out of shot.

 

Very much gone down the rabbit hole as a result of picking up a modded xbox again a few months ago!, It's great for watching 80's cartoons on!

Shame they weren't 20". I'd have took a punt on that. I had a 25" Panasonic TXMD3 a few years ago ,unfortunately, the Scart socket packed up so I had to take it to the tip and that was heavy as fuck, I could just about lift it on my own.
