Nice. I wish I would have known about this before I purchased my new 22" PC monitor last week. I'm all tapped out. My old Panasonic DT-M3050 has significant burn in, and needs to be replaced eventually.

Anyways, I guess CRTs like this will come around again.

Just remember, anybody who purchases this- you need two pretty strong guys to set it up- it's a beast.

Any similiar deal on the 34" widescreen monitor?
kharvel's Avatar kharvel 11:11 AM 05-08-2003
Thanks for the deal. Is there a similiar deal for the 34" widescreen pure-flat Monivision?

Is the screen "flat"?
Bill Harrison's Avatar Bill Harrison 01:52 PM 05-08-2003
I looked on MonoVisions website concerning this model, and it said it was a "Pure Flat" tube in this model. But it does not look flat in the picture, so is this monitor actually equipped with a flat screen or not?

If it is flat, I will be all over this! As I was about to get the samsung for slightly more, but it does not support 720p!

Thanks!

Any reviews? Can it be practical used as a regular computer monitor?
Ghamu's Avatar Ghamu 04:19 PM 05-08-2003
Any deals on flat models?

Maybe its just me, but I can't stand curved screens anymore, it just seems cheap and ugly.
Bill Harrison's Avatar Bill Harrison 07:16 AM 05-09-2003
I second that, lets see about deals on the flat 34"!
hvn4179's Avatar hvn4179 10:00 AM 05-09-2003
I was able to find only two links on the net and def. it didn't look super flat.

Well, that first link looks like a monivision repackage of the princeton graphics 30 (which is on a different chassis and bezzle then the one being sold here) the second link on the other hand looks pretty flat to me ;)
fuzzy bee's Avatar fuzzy bee 12:38 PM 05-09-2003
Is this the 32" or 30" version for sale?
M.S.-Ohio's Avatar M.S.-Ohio 02:01 PM 05-09-2003
Its the 32" Widescreen model, 30" Viewable.

Read the model # that Alan posted. Pretty specific.

For more specs visit www.monivision.com

Thanks Alan, AVS, and Monivision for this sale. I called, and all the sales staff was out (Friday doing installs :)) But I'll be back in touch Monday. Can't pass on this deal.

Yep, that's what I'm using my 38" Monivision for. Check out the link in my signature.

Princeton Graphics was a repackaged Monivision. Great sets!

I really like to know if it is a flat screen TV.

If it is, I will get one for sure!
BostonPie's Avatar BostonPie 09:53 AM 05-10-2003
Can someone specifically tell us if it is a pure-flat screen TV?

No one has answered this question yet, and I cannot find related information on the links above.

Thanks!
Dreamwriter's Avatar Dreamwriter 01:32 PM 05-10-2003
It is not - there's a picture of the TV at DigitalConnection.com, and you can see the curvature of the screen. BTW, they charge $1500 there with the Vision box, which shows just how damn good a deal this is. Makes me wish I had money now :(
kharvel's Avatar kharvel 01:44 AM 05-11-2003
According to Monivision, 32" widescreen is "almost flat". The 34" widescreen is pure flat.

Does anyone know the viewable size of this monitor when in 4:3 mode?

@_@ OMG!!! Great deal! Hmm..though, 24'' would be small for 4:3 material, but that's bigger then 16'' I'm using now. And with the Vision Box, this is just an insane deal! They'll be probably all sold out by the time I would have the money up. I just had to make those $200+ worth of DVD orders.
Shinji Kinomoto's Avatar Shinji Kinomoto 11:59 AM 05-11-2003
How long is this deal going to go on? I might consider getting this if this deal is still good for the rest of the month (I doubt it, but it's wishful thinking). The thing that's holding me back the most is $350 refund for a crappy modded PS2 I got a bit ago . I'm not sure how long it'll take to get it back, but if it's anytime soon, I want to definately consider this.
Alan Gouger's Avatar Alan Gouger 08:13 PM 05-11-2003
The screen does have a slight curve to it.

Hello hgodwin,

According to SGHT, the Princeton Graphics Systems AF3.0HD (Monivision DM-6552SW) monitor is close to a 25" diagonal TV when in 4:3 mode. They also gave it a rating of AAA in their Recommended Components 2000 issue.
aggie113's Avatar aggie113 10:20 PM 05-11-2003
ah, stupid me I got a 38" 4x3 monivision for 725 just last month. thought it was a great deal and then i see this :)
well, maybe it was a great deal, but no warranty
now, if they run a special on the CT-1890 then i'd jump at that. i sent in a sales request into monivision for one but never got a reply back. my MyHD card does nice with the vga input but my x-box is aching for that component imput :)

Excuse my ignorance on these "High Tech" TV's.

How does the streach mode (or modes, if any) compare to Toshiba's theater wide 1, 2, 3, full?
Is this TV practical to use by the family? (easy to use?)
I have "digital cable" used 75% of the time and with the Toshiba, I leave it in theaterwide 1 mode all the time. I also use a Toshiba SD4800 DVD sometimes along with a VCR. Would I be better off just buying a "consumer" type TV?

I'm kinda turned off with RPTV, as my Toshiba died after 2 years. (50H81)

Thanks....
hvn4179's Avatar hvn4179 03:20 PM 05-12-2003
One ordered! Now just need to learn how to calibrate this set. Any ideas?

This Monivision is not a "High Tech" TV. It is a computer MONITOR. It may look like a TV but it works like a computer monitor with VGA inputs. The Vision Box allows you to hook up traditional consumer inputs such as component, S-video, etc to the monitor.

Practically speaking, the Monivision is extremely powerful for home entertainment only through a HTPC (HOme Theater PC) which would be hooked up to the monitor via one of the 2 built-in VGA inputs. Sure it has component inputs to hook up stand-alone DVD players but then so do a lot of consumer-level TVs like Sony XBR or the Panasonic Tau.

Based on what you said, it seems that HTPC is not your cup of tea and you just want it simple (easy-to-use for the whole family) and you don't care for 720p. In that case, you would be much better off getting a consumer-level TV.

Hope this helps.
