Well I don't think the radiation from a CRT monitor or TV is really a concern. I used to repair them for a money making hobby and was exposed to plenty of open and running TV's while trying to adjust and repair them. Most had the X ray warning on the high voltage cage area and that was always shielded with some tin to protect folks.
I doubt just sitting in front of one would ever give anyone problems. One of my monitors had the older RGB color phosphor tube, the last one had a Sony trinitron tube in it and was pretty glossy but the reflections never bothered me.
The friend I gave it to loves it as he was broke and had a crappy monitor and mine was a pro model Iiyama, he loves gaming on it, so did I.
The text just was never as sharp as a good LCD at native resolution and I mostly am looking at text and forums and things like that all day any more rather then gaming a lot.
