    Nooooo!
    Good production values may not be noticed. Bad production values will be.

    Thats a shame. Where retro is trending as high as it is right now, those would probably fair well as props or even sell on ebay for cheap as opposed to going into a landfill right now.

    Price on ebay sucked, plus you had to ship them, and they were heavy and delicate. Mine went in a dumpster. I did have to track down like a 15" crt for a project last year. Was ridiculously expensive because of shipping and retro nerd gamers have driven up the price of crts.

    Go figure.

    Years ago (early / mid 2000's) I loved my 13 inch CRT as it was small enough for me to carry with my computer on public transport to gaming LANs on the weekend!
