Sadly, I had to say goodbye to an old friend today. My massive Mitsubishi DiamondPro 21TX went (back) into the recycle pile. I'm losing my office space and I just CAN. NOT. take it with me. It still works, and I'm sure I'll regret letting it go at some point, but it was a tossup between keeping this or a similarly full-featured 19" LG Flattron which is significantly newer & has a good bit sharper picture. I only have room for one 'big' CRT at home. I got a good 4 years & thousands of hours more use out of the Mitsubishi than when it was first put out for disposal (it was literally the center head of my 3840x1024 multi-monitor setup that I used every day), so I still feel like I didn't let it go to waste.
(Yes, that is my Dell Trinitron next to it too... that one had issues though.)
It's in a fairly well-trafficked dumping spot and will probably be there for a few weeks before the lot gets hauled away. You're supposed to mark whether or not things work when you put them there, so I left this (slightly crazy-looking) note on top instead. I'm holding out some hope that someone will grab it.
I sure enjoyed owning and using something this high-end, that I NEVER could have bought new, but can't save 'em all. 🙁
