Monitor for Miggy Use

Well it looks like I've found my new fave monitor to use my CD32 and A1200 on. My trust Dell 2005FPW makes the images look very nice.

What makes it even better is it has both composite and s-video inputs as well as the standard DVI and VGA.

Here's a quick pic of it running the classic Frontier on my CD32:



Overall I'm happy with the pic on this screen and not bad for an old monitor

Hm, okay, but widescreen?

I use Fujitsu-Siemens P19-2 and am fully satisfied.



VGA, DVI, 50Hz, speakers, adjustable in all the axis, 3:4.

The problem is that only rev 02 seems to work correctly with Amiga, other revisions show "out of range" message, that cannot be cancelled, although they display the picture correctly.

Aye it is a widescreen monitor, but it will display the picture in the native resolution and not stretch it or anything.

Sorry guys, but in my opinion the Amiga (or any other retro computer/console) looks absolutely terrible on an LCD or plasma screen.

Nice mug. I had one but someone pinched it at work (suppose that's good in a way!)

So yeah cmon this is a good idea. I have several monitors that proclaim to do 50hz, or are actually TVs too (so take SCART) but they all still exhibit some fault with Amiga connected, so tell us your monitors. Surely someone uses one that I can actually buy?

The Frontier image there does look quite stretched, though..?
