Got this one for free at work. They knew I wanted it :p
Now I just need to buy the correct cables to connect my modded Atari 2600 :p

@Murugan
this will be an awesome monitor for all your 15k needs
just patch that crack with some white epoxy and you'll be set

Hi Keropi 😀

That's why I asked one. They tossed quite a few in the bin last year.
I'm lucky that I have a modded 2600 because otherwise it would have been pretty useless, but free nonetheless haha.
I don't have a lot that I need to branch to a TB.

well tbh with the 2600 it will go to waste 🤣
but if you connect any other console or a home computer like the amiga you will see it is way better than consumer tv sets.
It is a great monitor to have, don't underestimate it!

Post about it next time. Mods, is there any harm in having a "super deals" thread where we can notify other vogons about major deals that would be of huge interest to people here?

Nice find. If you replace the electrolytic capacitors (the others are probably fine) and the cooler with a Zalman, then this can be a reliable and silent card.

Btw, it seems that some traders stepped in, one person has even bought 10 of them 😀

Yep. Or do your homework next time 😉

could you please point me at some thread where one can read some background on this apparently failed experiment?
I'd be very curious.

Because, I sometimes wish there were a subforum where collectors and retro users could trade/swap their stuff.

A la: I need the following things:
(list of items)
I have these items for trade:
(list of items)

So vogons could mutually help completing their builds without having to deal with crazy auction site prices or unreliable traders?
But before I'd think of proposing such, I'd really like to know more (see above).
Maybe this is one of the reasons too, why the chief vogons seem hesitant to the proposal of a vintage systems software development subforum?

And what about unreliable private sellers? Most trash that I have bought came actually from private sellers advertised on a local website, who made their stuff look like good deals.

Yes, but on sites who allow buyer feedback one can see if buyers are satisfied.

And I probably would trust well-known Vogons more than ebay private traders who sometimes dump defective stuff or package stuff in "static plastics" or such things (it happens, but very rarely in my experience.)

I just do not buy if I have no good impression and feeling, even if the price is good.
