WTB: (USA) Professional CRT Monitor
Hello, and thanks for looking.
I've been trying to find a quality CRT to retro game on for quite a while, and I've given up trying to find one locally. Since I'm not made of money and tired of taking risks with potential duds, I thought it might be best to acquire one here. After all, I'm sure somebody here has what I'm looking for just lying around collecting dust.
I'm not looking for anything huge, just a small professional quality CRT, preferably 19" to 21". I imagine anything bigger would be a pain to ship, and since it would be even more of a costly pain if shipped internationally, I don't imagine anyone outside the US can sell me one.
Not trying to sound like an over-demanding child with my numerous requests, but this is what I'm looking for in a CRT:
1. Few, if any, geometry problems. I'd much prefer one without any but I understand CRTs aren't always perfect.
2. Absolutely no "speed bump" problems. This drives me insane, and is an instant deal breaker for me.
3. Composite, S-video, and component inputs. Anything more is nice, but I mainly just want these.
4. No scratches or blemishes on the screen. Definitely no burn in. I don't care if the outer case is beaten up, just as long as the screen is fine.
Having working speakers (or any at all) is nice, but not necessary since I mostly play with headphones anyway. I don't care whether or not the screen is flat, just as long as the picture quality is good.
Have what I'm looking for, or know someone who might? Please let me know.
Where are you located? I've got some 20" Sony PVMs which fit the bill, but I'm in Vancouver Canada. If you're in Washington it could be an easy jaunt up here to get one. But if you're in Wisconsin or something, not so much.
