Several big CRT monitors going...

I'm having a clear out and since, sadly, I have just replaced my last CRT monitor, I'm going to give the three CRTs sitting here in my office one more stay of execution before they are shipped to the recycling centre. The one I have just replaced is an iiyama 22 inch Vision Master Pro 514. There is nothing wrong with it, but as most of us have also decided, I prefer the space saving of an LCD. It's a proper flat screen tube. and can happily display 1600x1200 at a flicker-free refresh rate. I Also have a 19 inch LG Flatron.

Maybe of more interest to computer historians, I also have an Acorn Risc PC complete with original AKF-60 17 inch monitor. I reckon these could have some value, so I may well ebay them, but the iiyama and LG monitors - I'd gladly give these to anyone who can offer them a new home, collect from Hemel Hempstead.

Re: Several big CRT monitors going...

Sadly, I'm not in the least bit surprised this post hasn't attracted any response

It's just soul-destroying the prospect of perfectly good monitors being scrapped, even though they are offered for free, sigh. But that's the reality of the LCD era...

Even more so as they probably outperform the LCD's that 90% of people are using by a fair margin...

I'll have the Vision Master Ian, if that's OK. You're just down the road from me, so I can collect basically any time.

PM. me for address and time it would be OK.

Will do - both the monitors are in the car as I was planning to 'retire' them tomorrow
