Bigger monitor for IIgs

I was wondering, what's the most popular option for a bigger RGB monitor for the IIgs? I have the original one, but it's just a tad too small... I'm thinking of using a Commodore 1084S, but I'm not sure if the picture quality compares...

It does not.  You might

It does not.  You might consider one of the Manilla Gear RGB converters that Henry Corbis at ReActive Micro sells. combined with a good 4:3 RGB flat screen.  Something like maybe a Samsung Syncmaster 710N.

I run a 1084 monitor on my IIgs and cannot tell any difference in picture quality, and I've got a bigger screen and AV input.  I did have to solder a resistor to one of the monitor wires to get it to work properly.

Thanks, that's the route I'm going to go I think, and build my own connector.

IIgs to scart

I use a IIgs to scart cable. Since I don't have a scart monitor I use a HDMI adapter with a 20 inch monitor. Have also used it with a 47" LCD TV
