LaCie Electron 22 Blue II monitor

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
The printing company I work at is closing down and they've got just a ton of stuff that couldn't be auctioned off and they're letting people take it home else it gets thrown away. This LaCie monitor is one of a few things I've grabbed so far, and since I know nothing about CRT monitors I thought I'd get your opinions.

Copy/pasted specs from here:
Quote:
Display Type Display / CRT
CRT Type DIAMONDTRON NF - aperture grille
Built-in Devices USB HUB
Width 49.3 cm
Depth 47.2 cm
Height 49.5 cm
Weight 30.5 kg
Enclosure Colour Blue
Compatibility PC, Mac
Display
Diagonal Size 22"
Viewable Size 20.0"
Dot Pitch / Pixel Pitch 0.24 mm
Max Resolution 2046 x 1536 / 80 Hz
Max Sync Rate (V x H) 160 Hz x 130 kHz
Display Screen Coating Anti-glare
Interface VGA (HD-15)

It's in good condition and although I haven't tested it yet, I'm told it works just fine. So, worth using as a second monitor to my U2311H or should I just try to sell it (assuming it's worth much)?

There's also a 19" Dell M993s that I can get tomorrow, if that's any good.

That resolution at that frequency sounds good, however i'm not familiar with how good of a brand it is.

Just tested it out, forgot how awful 4:3 was for games. tongue.gif Seems like it'd be nice for Photoshop and such, but I don't do much of that. Suppose I'll just try selling it locally then.

I have a 27" LaCie Electron22 Blue IV, and it's the best monitor I've ever owned. I paid $10 for it off Craigslist. Vivid colors and sharp images. Better than any widecreen monitor I've seen. CRT's still have the best quality for colors.

However, now I'd like to upgrade to a widescreen with a resolution of 2560 x 1440. Supposedly, these are even better than the typical 1920 resolutions. I've been looking at Yamakasi and Achieva Shimian from Korea as their prices are much lower than the more popular brands.
