NEC MultiSync EA274WMi/EA275WMi
it also sports a VGA input (it has VGA/HDMI/DVI and DP) and should support DOS resolutions with correct scaling, I have yet to get one though.
I have the 19" Mi monitors and it does scaling pretty nicely, so I assume the same is true for the larger models, and the vast input selection is just awesome :3
some models might not have seperate VGA/DVI but a DVI-I input
edit: just realized, there is also a 30" version, EA305WMi with 16:10 resolution 😮 gotta put that on my wishlist... it seems to have been discontinued and I guess there's probably not many of those around in white though.
the 275 is still available new.
edit2: also it seems most websites seem to have forgotten that VGA/Analog RGB exists because a lot of sites list the monitors with "DVI-D" input, but the manual clearly states "DVI-I" and "Analog RGB" supported, and also lists "720x400 VGA text" as supported resolution: http://www.support.nec-display.com/dl_service … anual_EN_v9.pdf
like I said, I only have the EA193Mi, got 4 of these now and my assumptions on scaling are based on that, but since according to their manuals they still support analog input and 720x400 I assume all of the monitors in that range do equally well, can't guarantee it though until I finally get my hands on one ^^

Thanks for that info! I'll keep an eye out 😀

I have to retract my statement on the EA193Mi somewhat, while it seems to scale old DOS resolutions quite nicely it actually stretches normal VGA resolutions to 5:4 for whatever reason 🙁 I have never really tried anything newer so far so I did not notice that, still nice for older pure DOS though.
should not affect the newer models though I guess as they have dedicated aspect ratio modes.

I bring further bad news 🙁
so I got ahold of a NEC EA223WM 22" 1680x1050 16:10 monitor that boasts support for 720x400 in the datasheet and has aspect ratio control, unfortunately that does NOT produce a 4:3 picture 🙁
not even 1024x768 seems to get scaled correctly for some reason only 640x480 and 800x600 apparently.
so my hopes for the complete NEC range have gone, I guess the behaviour will be similar on other monitors but I will still try to maybe get a 24" at some time.
