What $20 gets ya...

So I was up at the University of Utah's University Surplus and I found a 19" Sun monitor :gross_07: (they've actualy got like 8 or more of them) and picked it up for 20 bucks, works great and it's super vivid... had to spend bout 20+ mins setting it properly (adjusting the color convergence, rgb contrast as well as rgb bias) but man is this thing so sweet.....

I'm now rocking this HUGE monitor (compaired to my 15" old azzz sony monitor)..... and all I do is giggle :rainbow: and find out what things now look more vivid (like the AVS I have on winamp or the motion blurred pics look truely stunning ).

Gotta love things you can get for cheap when you know what to look for :biggrinfl

Yes they had probably 20+........ sad news is that wednesday my bro's n I went back up to check out the other to hope to fine another good one. We tested damn near every one in the place and well saddly mine was the only one that didn't have signal input issues {the guy working there said that's what was the problem with most of them when I got mine} (there were horizontal/diagonal green and blue or red n green lines)......... one was super outta focus and another was "popping".. so saddly I think I got the only good one in the place (somehow ).

With this being said even if I found a good one I'm not sure how the hell I'd ship the damned thing anywhere, the monitors are quite heavy and I have a feeling any shipping trip they might take would do them in worse than before

The University ofMichigan one is pretty close to you (maybe) and they had well over 200 different ones there.

Problem is that U Michigan is now a 4 hour drive away (I no longer live right across the border of Detroit).

You could call any schools close to you to see if they have a disposition program. I know that UM doesn't advertise thirs at all, I had to call and ask.
