A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

I remember the othe half paying a small fortune a few years back for it. Supposedly the best there was in terms of flat screen stuff. But its a 4:3 ratio and DVI input attached cable. We now have cheap(er) screens in 16:9 that do what is needed. So is it time to take to the recycler, or is there still some reason to keep that I have not thought of.

No pixels have failed btw, which was normally the reason for exchanging/upgrading these at the animation studios.

Good to keep around if you ever have that need to smash something computer related with a baseball bat, or on the other side of the big pond a cricket bat.

I never throw the old monitors away (unless they are FUBAR) good for a backup if needed at some time.

Thanks, though I hate destroying something that has worked flawlessly throughout its life and is simply deemed ‘obsolete’.
