Without a doubt, I'd get the new 1084 monitor.

Amiga graphics look like chunky shit on an LCD monitor. I bought a scandoubler a few years ago to use with an LCD monitor and I was horribly disappointed. Maybe I just got a bad scandoubler, but it felt like my real Amiga had turned into a slow jerky emulated Amiga. I quickly returned the scandoubler and went back to the 1084.

Where the hell did you find a brand new 1084?? I need a few.

A New 1084S-D2 OR A2320 Scandoubler

Hi Mr. A500
I found it on Australia EBay and I asked the same question this was his reply

“In regard to your question why do I have a new monitor? I was a Commodore Dealer from the VIC 20 days until Commodores final demise in the early nineties. I still have a lot of new items from then which I have finally decided to clean up. If you have a look at my other listings on E-Bay you will see that I have a variety of Amiga items - most all brand new and unused”

Damn, it's no good for me - it's PAL and he ships to Australia only. Well, shipping to Canada would be a killer anyway. Something that heavy needs to be bought locally.

I think the 1084 is a great monitor. My first one lasted 15 years until it died. I'd love to get a brand new one so I could be guaranteed another 10-15 years. My biggest worry right now is that my second used 1084 will die.

No its not. 1084S is a monitor, no PAL or NTSC involved.

[edit] Canadian problems (and USA) is the pathetic 110v (+/- 10%)
Where as Australia (And UK) is 220V (+/- 10%)

Uh, yes.. PAL or NTSC are involved. Even if the RGB can accept both PAL or NTSC modes from WB, there's still the composite input - which is either PAL or NTSC. My 1084 is NTSC.

"The CD-ROM drive installs easily. No Software installation is required; the built-in software takes care of both CDTV and CD-ROM use. No extra hardware is needed either; when playing CDTV titles, you can continue to use your Amiga’s keyboard, mouse and monitor for input and display"

Dont you just love plug and play on the amiga a decade ago as to where PC's need drivers and didnt have as good plug and play as the amiga
