For anything 32 bit or below go with a CRT.....anything more recent I'm not sure. By that time I was addicted to the Amiga software and huge gaming library....

I've got my OSSC, so for me I could actually see myself going for it.


I should also mention that I recently picked up an HDMI to VGA converter that does the job of getting my current systems hooked up to older PC crt monitors. This with the OSSC is a great combination for a number of workarounds in terms of compatibility, but I also took notice that a lot of retro games are being line-doubled to 480p and that is perfect for getting them to show up properly. Add in a scanline generator and you got yourself the perfect retro setup that only a Sony BVM can match.

I don't know if you guys ever look into the stuff that comes out from the retro hobbyist community, but you should check it out since it's all starting to become perfected at this point.
