People who live in Europe are somewhat spoiled when it comes to true RGB monitors. I must admit I've never really put any effort into RGB-quality when I was younter. Owning an N64 as my first console didn't help (:p) and I've had trouble recognizing the difference on my Xbox 1 when I tested it almost a decade ago (oh God, how time goes by).
But when I entered the world of retro gaming, RGB became more and more important to me. I prefer arcade style games and 2D graphics, both of which are clearly designed to be presented in RGB quality. As late as in 2007, being addicted to arcade style games for a humble four years, I decided that everything needs to be RGB-ticized. First off were my Saturns, my Mega Drive, SNES, my PS2, then my Dreamcast, my GameCube (I performed a modification so my PAL GC - the only one that can output RGB! - would be able to play US and JPN games), and now finally, the PC-Engine.
Basically every CRT TV here in Germany supports RGB except for the pre-Scart stuff and some exceptions. Companies like Grundig, Telefunken or Sony built very high quality tubes into their consumer televisions. For instance, some Telefunken televisions were equipped with the same tubes as arcade machines back in the day (the best RGB picture to get).
So I was wondering. How hard is it to get an RGB-capable screen in the US or Canada? How common are Sony/Barco/NEC rgb screens and are they the same models as those distributed in Europe? For instance, my Sony PVM 2730qm has scart RGB, is it identical to an American 2730QM?
And last but not least - some impressions of one of the best RGB monitors ever made. The Sony PVM series, what we have here is the 27 inch-model "Sony PVM 2730QM":
I know there are still some people out there who believe "not to see a difference between S-Video and RGB", so here it goes:
