Over the past couple years I've had a few CRT monitors randomly die on me. The first was an old 80 column Magnavox monitor that died as a catastrophic event (zap! bang! poof!) complete with smoke and ozone smell and just recently my 17" CRT flat screen monitor died "peacefully" during use and without any warning signs; the screen suddenly and out of nowhere lightened a bit, image became big and then distortion in an "S" shaped pattern then she was gone, all it does now is a click of death which I assume is the flyback.
As much as I absolutely love and prefer CRT's I just don't have the heart to deal with them anymore; parts are getting harder to find due to lack of manufacture and vast recycling, CRT's are getting stupidly expensive (online anyway) and are hard to find locally anymore though CRT tv's seem to be in abundance CRT monitors don't seem to be, and besides that realistically they all are on death's door these days.
So the monitor needs replaced, the PC is a pure DOS machine. Can anyone recommend a good and fast response LCD or LED replacement? Ideally 4:3 ratio is preferred but I guess a 5:4 ratio is allowable. Please, NO 16:9 or any other widescreen ratios.
Thanks in advance.
