The CRT I've currently got out is a Panasonic PanaSync E70i model TX-T7F22-G manufactured in January 2000. The main reason a pair of these survived the CRT purge about 10 years back is they support sync on green which makes them compatible with the various UNIX workstations I've got. I don't have any UNIX machines setup these days so for now its doing a good job on my 486:

I got fed up with these LCDs with a gazillion of colours and insane refresh rates so I decided to go back to basics for my everyday rig...

The first "retro" CRT I got (as in, when they were considered retro and not just a cheap monitor for when you couldn't afford a flat-screen!) was this Relisys TE-555 15" monitor:

I then got this one for the princely sum of £1. It turns out it's got a problem with the menu though, where it randomly pops on the screen. I wired in a latching switch to the exit button to stop it from coming up, but clearly, a more substantial repair is needed...

Hello, I only noticed this now. I wonder if you could upload hi-resolution pictures of the TE555, front and rear? Do you have the manual and the swivel base?

My Sony PVM-9L1 and PVM-1341.

I need to make minor adjustments to the 1341's geometry since it's a bit angled, however, it's sharp and it looks good for a PVM that's a month older than I am.

ICCM type 1400-30LR from Feb 1991. It's quite yellow, but otherwise pretty cool and I got it for free.

I wonder if this is based on a Philips 107S - its shape looks quite similar

many beige things were rebadged or borrowed styling like dvd drives i remember so its very possible 😀
it has a great burn free bright screen ideal for photoshop a rare digital menu for me not at all common here.
