New (Used) Monitor

Published on July 12, 2005

I picked up a used 22″ NEC monitor tonight for $200. Not a bad deal, considering you can’t find new CRT’s that size on the web for less than $550. The color isn’t 100% (it’s more like 95%), but I think I can get used to it (and I might be able to tweak it some). What’s more irritating, however, are the front buttons. The plastic bezel around the front is placing some tension on these buttons, causing the monitor adjustment menu to show up at inopportune times. Perhaps I need to disassemble this thing to see what’s causing the tension.

Anyways, I can finally run my desktop at 1600 x 1200. How glorious the web becomes at that resolution! Screen real estate is freely available now, and I couldn’t be happier.
