Title: scored yet another CRT VGA monitor and it's in fantastic condition.

Snagged a free DELL CRT. handles 240p output as well as HD with zero motion blur and obviously the display latency is virtually zero.

Sweet!

What kind of refresh rates can you crank that bad boy up to?

i already own a 24in16:10 (22viewable) crt and a 21in4:3 (20viewable) but this one is just a run of the mill "Dell E772c" 17inch4:3 (16viewable) model that i found sitting on the rug in the basement at a family picnic last wednesday.. can never have too many of these since CRT-production is no more. it outputs 1024x768 @85Hz natively.

It handles 120Hz for proper scanline output for 240p gaming.

the original screen of the xbox dash was via network stream while waiting for my replacement adapter to arrive. it looks even better now directly connected. currently testing it on my xbox one using a tendak hdmi to vga adapter at 720p/60. output set to DVI on x1 so there is no black-crush..  with proper ratio adjustments it is 13inches corner to corner which tbh is now my favorite monitor of the 3 because i sit about 1 ft from my monitors and the size feels perfect for me. looks fantastic (sharper than my 1080p 24in benq lcd). well all 3 of my CRT monitors look better so long as the proper resolution is being fed to the display for its size. sRGB, 6500k, 9300k presets out of the box and no motion blur, jitter or phosphor lag. geometry is top-notch on this one. plays like a dream.
