Found a cheap LCD that works with the Apple-1/Mimeo

I needed a portable monitor that I could take on an airplane so I took a long shot and bought a $79 19" LCD TV at Best Buy.  Was amazed it worked with the Mimeo and an original Apple-1.     It fits in my old 17" laptop bag from the early 2000's.    All I did was set the video pot to the middle and then adjusted it once video was displayed on the screen.  The best part, it's light and the power supply is built in.

I know finding a cheap LCD that works with the A-1 is pretty much impossible, so I figured I'd share.

 

Cheers,

Corey

Thanks for that Corey.  It works great.  If you keep an eye on it they sometimes run a sale at $59.99.

I saw the $59 sale on Sunday

I saw the $59 sale on Sunday but was really busy and when I went to buy a couple on Monday, I apparently missed the sale.  Hopefully it repeats.  For a single monitor no big deal, but I want to get a few so it adds up.

 

Cheers,

Corey

The sale is back at $59 with free delivery in the USA. Don’t know how long it’s on for but I just grabbed 3 more as spares.
