Previously I remember (but couldn't easily locate) a discussion on this board about using LCD monitors with composite inputs for use with the Apple ]['s. I think Tom Owad made the comment that due to Woz's tricks to get the video out, the results weren't quite up to standards of NTSC and so many LCD TV's with composite inputs had difficulties displaying this signal (with vertical hold, IIRC).Well I have come across two LCD TV's that seem to work very well with a ][e's video output and I thought I'd share.
The first model is an institutional grade TV from Zenith-LG. Made in 2008 it has a big screen, holds the video signal in a steady, very clear manner. It's also heavy for it's size, but has a VESA mounting layout, and offers some future proofing features like an HDMI in port, and both analog and digital broadcast TV reception. The other downside is that due to the fact that it is meant for institutional use, it's default settings are for not allowing the user to modify the inputs. It requires a special technician remote control and some jiggery-pokery to change the settings to work (at least for me from the hospital where it came from). However, because it's institutional grade, I expect it to last a long time. I think that it's pretty tough. The manual is available online, and if anyone wants specific instructions on how to most easily set it up for use with an Apple ][, PM me.
BTW, in the images below you may notice a large black border around the video displayed. The monitor does have different ratio settings for display (even with composite input). I did have it on the smallest viewable area. I'm not sure but I think it might cut-off some of the screen output and would have needed further adjustment to bring the edges back on screen. This machine is highly adjustable/programmable.Note the dual voltage input and the low-ish 68 Watts of power consumption. So this model is suitable for use in international markets.
