The owner said he could 'find' the 21" versions? What is
he going to do, check in the back room? Run, don't walk, for the exit.
I don't think anyone can tell you what these monitors will look like. What do you think they look like? Have you seen some of your images displayed on them?
Wow, your a wealth of positive feedback. I think someone could tell me what these monitors might look like if they owned one. That was the idea behind the question. I think I'll just stick with asking questions on nikonians web site. They seem to be a bit more informative.
They still might. Mine's a NEC MultiSync, so no help
Save your money and invest in a current Viewsonic professional graphic display. I purchased a 19" CRT G90fb a year and a half ago. The color is right-on with the software controlling the calibration. Really nice and the price is right. Under $300.
You may aso look into the LCD Model VP930B 19" for $374.
Same color calibration wizzard to keep the colors correct. A small footprint and pick up some desk space.
I just may look into this also. I have been tracking this model.
The LCD VP2130B measures 21.3" is available for $663.
Check each one out. The 19" looks like the right one as far as I am concerned.
Buy.com just had the 19" VP on sale last week. Sale is no longer available for that model. Was tempting to spring for it. But I hate rebate offers!!
Even if I could get it for under $300. You may see the offer come up next month or so. Be patient.
Anyone like rebate offers or trust them?
I applied for rebates and never received them. Some companies are better than others it seems.
Want a hoot? Go to woot.com for real bargains. The website is wild!
You won't believe it. EdH posted on it about a month ago.
Unbelievable site from Assannippi, MA. Web only sales.
The webmaster is a genious and really a fun writer.
He had a fun story about rebates three weeks ago.
Kevin, Thanks for the info. I will certainly check these monitors out. Thanks, Owen
Owen, me too!
Viewsonic is my choice so far for a LCD or CRT.
Based on my experience with Viewsonic in the past year and a half. Excellent guarantee on their products also.
I should be a salesman for them and receive a commission don't you think?
Kidding aside, the CRT monitor is impressive. Good color, calibration wizzard software and great sharpness.
Here is an example to view from a Photoshop file:
Color and clarity are exceptional on the Viewsonic.
Anyone out there that has the VP930B, 19" LCD or the VP2130B 21.3" monitor to send info to us here? Would help us all.
Especially Owen and I.
I don't like rebates, but, if it's offered for the product I
want to buy, it's a nobrainer. I just have to be sure that I don't lose the paperwork, and that I file on time. The mfgr is, of course, hoping you won't do what's necessary to collect.
Kiddpeat, the only rebate offer that I had a hard time with was from Symantic for a $50 rebate last year.
You could not read their rebate address. The cruds that they are!
I said to myself screw-them after trying to telephoning them and sending them emails.
You guessed it, never a reply back! Crudbuckets and a lousy product.
Do not ever use Spring Cleaning on a Mac if you have this product. Others have posted similar posts concerning Symantic/Norton wiped out their computer recently.
Live and learn the hard way!
By the way, I like the instant rebates offered by manufacturers.
Not waiting for ten weeks to receive it.
I'm slowly migrating to Zone Alarm myself.
I still have a few Norton things I run including Ghost and their anti-virus.
?Spook the heck out of me. Specially Symantic ghosts! :
I have had a ViewSonic 21" (.24dp) for the past 7 years and as long as it holds out I will keep it. It has been used extensibly in my multimedia business and has performed well beyond my expectations. It is the only monitor I have owned that does not need to be color calibrated constantly to keep it accurate to print output. Of course, with all CRT's, burn in is an issue, but my ViewSonic's phosphorus is still strong after 7 years of quite heavy usage.

Viewsonic 21" CRT
Good info to know. Seven years is a long time to have it still performing professionally.
Shows the value of the Viewsonic.
I had an Apple 19" CRT that blew up after 2 and a half years of minor usage. One huge BANG!!! Scared the living heck out of me sitting in front of it!!
I still want to gut the thing and turn it into a fish tank. I think that it would be a fun project to do :
That sounds like a GREAT use for an Apple.
Old Apple CRT Monitor
Kiddpeat, I used to have a 75 gallon freshwater fish tank until the darn thing cracked and I had hundreds of fish flapping in about 1 inch of water on my living room floor. The water spread and was running down my cellar stairs like a waterfall.
Interesting memories for me.
Also the Apple 19" CRT that scared the heck out of me when the CRT tube blew! What a BANG!!! Didn't bother me that much since I bought it for $50 while only 6 months old.
The case is interesting to use as a fish tank holder inside of it.
I could probably get a ten gallon tank and all the pumps, filters and lighting to sit inside of it.
Ask the college kids if they can think of a solution to the Apple frame. Looks aquatic with it's blue and white colors and shape.
Would be really a fun project to accomplish.
Want to help me with the project or just turn the frame into an aquatic planter? :
So where are my fish??
Get with it and have your design buddies come up with a plan.
I want to do this. True!
Viewsonic 21" CRT
ScarBoro55, I received my new 21-1/2" Viewsonic LCD today.
An VX2025wm. Haven't set it up yet.
Looks like it would be good for all wide multi-media, including a TV.
I purchased it for my graphics monitor using a Macintosh.
Main use is for Adobe Photoshop.
The unit has a color-calibration software called the wizzard or such.
Should be great with Photoshop.
I will tell you about this next week after I have it installed.
