finally gave up on my ancient 16 inch Nanao monitor (10+ years old, bought with
a 386-33mhz computer). It was expensive back then but had really great color and
clarity, even by today's standards. The new one I bought is an Eizo Nanao 21"
F930. It's a 2000 discontinued model that was factory refurbished after being
returned from a lease and looks perfect, and has a full 3yr guarantee on parts
and labor. I got it on Ebay for $284 with $42 shipping. This is a really
great monitor and a really great deal. Nanao monitors are an expensive, high
quality professional line, little known outside the graphics industry. They
frequently win magazine "Best Monitor" tests. If anybody is looking for a
monitor, the guy selling these has about forty of them and will sell for the
same price. He's reliable and fast --- I ordered it Wednesday and it showed up
today. I'd recommend it for anybody who thinks it's time for a new monitor. BTW
- my old one cost more than twice as much.
