CRT Monitor - ridiculous prices!

It also weighs 7 stone.

As long as someone is willing to pay for it, it would be insane NOT to ask for that price ;-)


Bryce:
For that price you could get a custom monitor made to the exact specifications you wanted. So it would still be insane.

Actually - that's a very interesting point. How much would it cost to build a widescreen CRT that has the same resolution options as the FW900, but with the added 15khz ( for retro computing) and a built in HDMI signal converter?

Bryce:
The problem would be that as soon as you put a HDMI converter in the chain you are then back to a sampled system and the CRTC tricks don't work any more.

15kHz may also be an issue because you have too much screen area to scan at high speed with a low speed signal. It would otherwise be possible as long as you had a tube that had the native resolution that you need.

So what would it cost to have those current resolutions in a wide screen CRT with the 15kHz?
