As the title says its a 19" Hyundai Imagequest Monitor, 1600x1200, VGA input. It's a good monitor, i got it from overclockers about 3 years ago for over £100. Winner will either collect from my house in Southampton or pay for courier delivery (its heavy).
The monitor is in good condition apart from the image sometimes goes yellow, you just have to hit the side and it flicks back to the normal colours.
Any questions please ask.

I would grab it, but the cost to ship the damn thing over the Atlantic is more than buying a new 19" CRT or LCD locally...lol.

O, and what's the refresh rate at 1600X1200? My 17" will do it at 60hz and my 15" won't do that res at all

Hmm, if you want a CRT, check out your local library or school or University or something. They probably have a couple of old ones that they couldn't get rid off when they switched to LCDs.

I think it can do 70Hz at 1600x1200. It is a much better screen than your average library computer.

I'll take it off your hands. I want to take it apart.

Is there anything potentially life threatening inside them i should be wary of?

Yes, lol. theres a big rubber bung thing at the back of the ray tube - do not go under that unless you know what you are doing. It can hold a considerable (read:lethal) amount of charge for quite a while.

Nothing life threatening! Just come round and get it, its all yours!

Reminds me of krusty in the Simpsons episode where homer gets a free Trampolene.

yeah nothing lethal except a bunch of lead, mercury, probably a bunch of other carcinogens... formaldehyde, etc.

plus, you could cut yourself on the tube if you were to break it.

on the bright side, if you use common sense, you should be ok.

I was down in Pompey the other day sailing. It's pretty much the same as Soton. Loads of Pompey guys come down to Soton for Officer Training. Might go out there one night.
