There, I actually found the pic from back in 2004...I don't miss that aspect...that huge CRT monitor I had weighed way too much...but...I had another one, brand new from Future Shop at the time (long time ago...around 15-20 years back)...I spent $450ish CAD on a "flat" CRT, I think it was 19"...well...I brought it home, so psyched, hooked it up, got about 20 minutes or so of Quake or something in before it shut off and wouldn't turn back on again. I had purchased an extended warranty (scam) on top of the price...I was a teen, and this was a lot of money for me to have saved on my own. Anyway...I contact Future Shop, and they tell me I have to ship the monitor back to manufacturer...and pay for shipping, possibly both ways. Keep in mind the weight of these things, that I just purchased it brand new with an extended warranty. So...being a teen unable to drive with a crumby family, I had no way to deal with it other than bringing the thing back to Future Shop myself with all the paper work...so...I put it in a shopping cart...and took a bus an hour across town...to return it. They wouldn't take it. I wanted to ram that heavy thing through their front display window. I took it all the way back home and kept if for a couple years and looked at it out of sadness until I finally got the nerve to send it to the recyclers. I did get some people to help me return it several times, and got the same runaround each time.
Oh, I had that HD CRT TV, must have weighed around 130lb, same with a 36" standard def TV I had...well in the 130lb range. I am also in the 130lb range, so imagine me lifting those things lol I did though.
TLDR - CRT monitors are far too heavy to deal with in most cases, but I had a doozy of a time with one in particular.
The one on the left (obviously lol), with Logitech QuickCam on top. The very same QuickCam from yesterday, now paired with ADI 4P
