Indivision AGA on a CRT VGA monitor

Hello everyone and Merry Christmas to all . Giving that I'm still looking for parts to fix my 1084D and they're getting extremely hard to find I was thinking instead on getting a CRT VGA monitor.

I have an Indivision AGA MK2 on my A1200 and I would like to test it on a CRT VGA monitor. So my question basically is; Is this the closest approach I can get to the image quality that I was getting from games with my old 1084 monitor?

Maybe with color depths etc it's better than most flat screens, but Indy mk2 still can't do vsync, so scrolling/movement isn't as smooth as in a real thing.

Thanks for your reply. I think the lack of vsync wont be an issue for me as long as I can get the colors that I'm used to with my old 1084. But definitely I this will be a temp solution until I find another 1084, well If I ever find one in good working condition

Ha! Congrats! I just got back into Amiga-world and bought an A1200 recently equipped with a ScanJuggler scan-doubler. When I got back into the hobby a few weeks ago, I knew I wanted a CRT since I'm old enough to recall how vibrant CRTs' images are.

I got lucky and within 24 hours of winning my A1200 on eBay, I found two compatible CRTs (i.e., 50Hz-vertical/30kHz-horizontal): Samsung SyncMaster 997MB 19" CRT, and a Compaq FS7600e 17" CRT (brand new!). Finally got a US power supply for my EU Amiga just today so will be able to see those images soon on my Samsung and Compaq monitors.

Thanks, thats nice. Definitely a CRT looks way better. Im missing my 1084 monitor that I have seating in storage until I find a way to fix it but looking on how good the Indivision looks on the VGA monitor with either high and low resolutions it will be the monitor that I'll use from now on.

Keep us posted once you connect your Amiga to the CRT monitors.
