Just wanted to do a PSA for anyone with a busted analogue board or wanting to get SVGA. A guy on ebay is selling a bunch of the monitors that went into the Cube-in-a-CC project. The ebay ad stated "I have received dozens of these from a corporate take-out," but I wanted to see if the seller is a good ebayer and it was in decent condition before posting it here. He took several days to ship it, and sent me an incorrect tracking number, but it was decently packed, wrapped in a multiple layer caccoon of bubble wrap (it survived the UPS guy basically *throwing* the box onto my porch), and it works. The only bad thing was that it seemed out of adjustment- the geometry was a little funky. Luckily, all of the controls are external so I could try to fix it right away without cracking it open; four on the front and three on the back. It looked like the problem was that someone had fiddled with the ones on the back. It's mostly ok now but not quite perfect. That's my only caveat, and I realize that it would likely not be noticeable to someone who hasn't wasted much of the last couple of years adjusting CC convergence magnets.
The other thing is that it only gets SVGA at 56hz, not 60hz. It's disappointing to me because I have a 10" color monitor that does SVGA@60hz, and it makes a huge difference- but that one is not a trinitron, so the face isn't vertically flat. I've modified a CC case to mount it, but obviously there are gaps, and the curvature of the screen doesn't match the curvature of the case aperture. I guess I just have to put up with 56hz, but it's not easy on the eyes.
The auctions have had a buy it now of $50, with bidding starting at $40.
