Wow, I'm surprised to see good old RGB do so well. I thought I was the only one... Wink

It's an easy win... The outcome will not be so spectacular as the fray vs zaad poll Wink

I'd have expected emulation with monitor simulation (scanlines, blur, afterglow etc.) to score more points. Boy am I glad I've barely a reason to look at my old MSX monitor anymore.. Tongue

Basicly anything that is not CRT/TV jags the hell out of me. CRT/TV is fast responsive and reminds me of the good old days. O did I allready mention Duck hunt.... Wink

My MSX is connected to 50" plasma TV using RGB SCART. What should I choose ?

I'm viewing my MSX on a 13" laptop screen using a Pinnacle USB TV stick. It's small, blurry, and slightly delayed, but terribly convenient :-)

Way to go, NYYRIKKI, this is quite what I had in mind with the drastically failed MSX around the world contest. Ahwell...

Nothing can beat emulation with those hq2x, hq3x scalers on a IPS Panel modern flat monitor...
BTW, someone knows a photoshop filter/irfanview plugin or something to manually apply those filters to bitmaps?

A Sony KX27 with multi video 8 din connector still the best for me

My Sony Trinitron PVM2030 (20" Screen Anaglog RGB) is the best.

I only use MSX via emulation nowadays (because it's simply way more convenient),
but purely visually speaking I still prefer RGB SCART (not just for MSX, but for pretty much every console/home computer before the current generation of consoles).

And now... 3 months after the beginning of this Poll I think the outcome is clear. Maybe it's time for a new poll???

I wonder if the poll were repeated now, if we would get very different results.

I am missing "original legacy hardware" and "new/one chip/fpga hardware" in the poll. A good small composite monitor doesn't have to be a disadvantage, but for me nothing can beat the look and feel of the real original hardware . But maybe i am old.
For developing software emulators are great.
Why not start the poll again?

And maybe the use of emulation on mobile devices?
