24" GDM-FW9011, virtu cases or machines

Maybe not your traditional SGI fanboy stuff, but I'm looking! I am aware that neither of these are technically SGI hardware (Sony & Boxx respectively)

We had hundreds of the 24" SGI and Sun monitors at work back in the day, we called 'em double-wides, and yes the CRTs were all Sony Trinitrons, really beautiful monitors. We recycled the whole lot of 'em and the recycler sent them all off to the smelter... :|

That's probably an easy $100K down the drain ;)

Yep. Decent CRTs are still worth something even today. I used to be in charge of IT for a Psychology department at a university until 2 1/2 years ago and they still to this day use CRTs for most of their research simply because you get millisecond-precise timing from them, plus most decent ones support refresh rates of 100-120Hz. As so many have been scrapped and they've become so rare, a decent 20"+ monitor with good refresh rates therefore has quite a value these days.

TFTs are getting there, but 1ms ones with high refresh rates are still rare and expensive, plus all of them are horrible 16:9 jobbies at the moment.

Hi NICKERZ,
I have two of these that I already fixed the dreaded greenblack issue. They are REALLY heavy, therefore they would ship on pallet.
I want $800each + shipping. I will test them before I ship them (and lift them up onto my bench all by myself if necessary).

Thanks,
Doug
