after looking for literally the last few years i finally found one on Kijiji when i logged in last night
the guy wanted 20$ for a Phillips 107T5 17" flat screen CRT (16" viewable?)
the hilarious thing was i was going through the motions of asking when i could come and pick it up + pay for it
the guy put in almost my exact address and i was like how did u know where i live? turns out it was my neighbour across the street
who was selling it! and he wouldnt let me pay for it he insisted i take it for free! its brand new i dont think it's ever been used as the vga cable + power cable appear to be
still crimped from the factory and it looks brand new; manufactured April 2004. Probably the last time they were manufacturing 17" CRT Monitors.
its been so long since i seen a monitor such as this; feels like even longer than it actually is; at the same time its all too familiar as i spent my whole teenage years looking at
screens like this one, that were of various manufacturers (GoldStar, ViewSonic, Daewoo, PackardBell) it definately brings me back to the days when XP first showed up,
and i was proud of my SoundBlaster 64Gold, and my Matrox gpu + Viewsonic Monitor!!
Anyway i'm excited to see it in action!
trying to decide if i'm to use it with My Asus 486 or my Pentium 75
heres the specs

the last time i had a CRT i had been given 2 Flatscreen Sony Trinitrons and i remember i decided to get rid of them because they took up so much room compared to the flat screens i had recently got; so i dropped them off at a recycle center back around 2008 and i remember the next week i regretted it.. 12 years ago.. damn
