nope using DP again u2412m does not have good on and off response times and i don't use overrdrive because of overshoot....ever monitor ghosts like an ass without OD or some other nich feature. I can still see it in my head from 6 months ago playing Kings crusade and seeing the Calvary move across the screen as a huge blur lol If i had a DSLR camera i would show you but all i got is a lumix ZS-3 :/

Yea i am still waiting for that guy to email me :/ people putting up ads and never check their emails :/

Edited my post. that CRT actually pretty darn nice. it's capable of some insane resolutions for 12-13 year old CRT, least the online manual dates 2000.

yea the FW900 is awesome but he has no shipping only local...chicago here :/ so i am stuck with the 21 inch is i get him to contact me :/ it appears the largest monitor i can find is a 21 inch 4:3 and they are all 1600x1200, which isn't bad at all. I can't seem to find the 2300x1700 ones or whatever That would be some awesome 4:3 res but can't find any. Anyone know of the model of those that had those res?

Technology constantly moves forwards and drops in price, so why would anybody chose a CRT Screen over a cheaper, less space consuming and better picture quality LED/LCD screen? Plus CRT's had burn-in didnt they?

The seller must be crazy, $200 for 24" CRT is WAAY too much, you're getting a Screen that's 24"-27" 1080p LCD with HDMI with that money these days.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but alot of CRT's take royal dumps on LCD's, Especially in response time and IQ, If i could find a decent CRT i'd keep gaming on them, that said my 120hz catleap is very good.

24in 2560x1600 CRT with 120hz and 0 ghosting....will not be beaten for another decade i bet and the colors are just as good. I could care less about 120hz. 60 works for me as long as ghosting is gone....sigh it annoys me so much

I'll take 1600x1200 21 inch CRT over my u2412m for gaming even

OP, you should be looking for high end Trinitron or Diamondtron based units. If you're putting any significant amount of cash down for them, you want to inspect them before purchasing - there aren't that many healthy ones left, and there's no point wasting money on completely spent CRTs. Ideally you'd be looking for old warehouse stock still unused in their boxes.

And you definitely don't want to be running a CRT at 60Hz, it'll do your head in. Any decent unit will do 85Hz at 1600x1200 at least.

If i were you i'd ask a mod to delete your post because you have no idea what you are talking about.

That CRT has been capable of running resolutions that LCDs just coming out do... for the last 12 years WITH good contrast and image quality all at over 60hz. not only that because of the LCDs work they don't work as well with 2D things like classic games. like AOE 2 (orginal) or StarCraft 1 or Command and conquer Tiberian Sun etc etc.

So before you go flaming in thread do some research first. That monitor is not ordinary SUPER DUPER ULTRA quality CRT it has been know to be used in special studios, like video game studios or Pixar or Dream Works. Also that last I heard those go for 400 bucks.

I know I'm flaming pretty hard, however, you are right about 1 thing technology is constantly moving forward and ONLY NOW is it catching up high caliber CRTs like the FW900. Some what soonish we will have some really nice LCDs that might compete.

That said OP I see some eBay listings where says buy is responsible for shipping/freight. I think there may be services in which pay that will pick it up and ship it you?

oooorrrrr like I said earlier find a low/mid grade trinitron for free locally. I know at work we have some and are more than likely gonna throw them away (though not with out their issues)
