I Forgot...

that CRT's way so much. My 36" Sony weighs 250lbs and is in a cabinet and I don't want to take it out, but it died last week and I have it's replacement.

The 40" died last year and was 400lbs.
Take it apart and make it easier to move.
Advise: Go to store, buy a new TV, pay for delivery along with old TV pick up. You may not save a lot of money but you will save your back!
No way!
How do you dispose of a CRT? I heard that it has to go to a recycling center.
I had the same 250 pound Sony die years ago, and bought a new HDTV, with a pick up and disposal deal, as part of the purchase.
just get out your skill saw and cut it into 4 or 6 pieces, then you can move each out individually ;-)
I liked those big HD CRTs they still have the best picture quality
I've heard a lot of people say that, but I had a high quality Hitachi CRT, and as nice as it was, it couldn't compete with the Samsung LED that I have now.

All joking aside. Over the last two years I’ve replaced our CRT and 55” projection TV’s. The CRT was a 32” Mitsubishi, what a beast. I purchased a Samsung 46” Monitors from Amazon at a great price. I called Goodwill and they didn’t want the CRT. It sat next to our front door for a year. A few weeks ago I purchased a another Samsung TV to replace the big projection unit. This time, I went to a local Brick Mortar store and paid for delivery with old TV pick-up. I got rid of the CRT and Projection TV’s. I had to tipped the delivery kids 40 bucks to take the 2nd TV. I could have saved $200.00 buying from Amazon but it was worth the extra cost to getting those heavy beasts out of the house.

That may have been true then, but not now.
