I'm thinking about buying a bunch of old monitors etc at an online auction in 2 weeks. (a TV production studio is selling its stuff)

What do you guys think of these? (They're older, but I can probably snag each one for around $25)

19" ForMac Flat Panel Monitor Model# FGD1740-1

Sony Trinitron Multiscan CPD-G420S

20" Sony Trinitron Color Video Monitor Model# PVM-20M4U

NEC Monitor FE1250+BK

Thanks!

My G420 is the second-best 19" monitor I ever knew about, and reputedly more reliable than the best (F-series Trinitron with .22 stripe pitch.)

But you won't want a 19" unless you're borderline nearsighted like me, and you dislike reading with corrective lenses.

Thanks for the input

It seems like there will be a few for sale, so I may pick up more than one.
