Man, just a day or two ago I mentioned here that I had been looking for a high-res PC CRT monitor, and while cleaning out an outbuilding at work, here one is (with a friend)!
A Viewsonic A90f+! It’s a 19" Flat Tube, (Samsung as a matter of fact). up to 1600x1200, though I use 1440x1050. I got it cleaned up and dialed in in a couple hours, man these things were filthy. I have to say, aside from a locked green level, the adjustment layout inside the case and on the OSD are some of the best I’ve ever used. After working on cheap Dells, HPs and Gateways, it’s awesome to find a monitor with decent, accessible controls.
Also, I recovered a smaller Mitsubishi DiamondScan Plus 74sb. It’s a 17" screen, only up to 1280x1024 by default, and the anti-glare coating is in bad shape, but it also works! Not the best picture or adjustments available, but the tube is strong and I think the look and external design is the best I’ve seen on a CRT PC monitor.
And then there are games! I try to pick up a couple every payday, here’s Digimon World 3 (probably my second favorite PS1 RPG) with some bootleg art, and Area-51. I had the demo of this one back in the day and liked it, but never saw the game at any stores. For $4 why not?
