Great Monitor!


WOW! I love this monitor..This monitor has a big, bright, beautiful screen. I fell in love with it though, due to its excellent refresh rates. A must for any serious gamer. The need for enabling vertical synchronization to get rid of "visual tearing"...

This thing is a beast.


Most beautiful picture I've ever seen on a CRT. The picture is bright enough that it illuminates my entire room almost bright enough to comfortably read a book by. Colors are intense and vibrant, and text is incredibly sharp. And did I mention it's a...

grat for games... BUT...


For the gamer this is a great monitor. I bought it for use in 3D and CAD... The corner convergence is WAY off and there is no corner convergence adjustment so the corners of the screen are out of focus and un-converged to say the least. My previous...

Fairly Happy


The CRT is really nice. I love the color and all the options available via the menu. My only complaints are: 1) 2 Dead pixels (yes - it seems there are dead pixels on CRTs) 2) Strange crackle I'm guessing the crackle is normal. Its barely audible,...
