I'd like a monitor I could use with my Philips VG8235 MSX2 computer, which at the moment I only use with a large Philips TV. People should bear in mind that CRT monitors are fragile and I've read that if you buy a monitor and have it posted or sent by courier, then the monitor should be located as close to you as possible, because the further away it is, the more chance it has of the screen breaking on the journey. Nijmegen to Cologne sounds like a fairly safe journey. It should also be from a seller who has sold and sent monitors before, who knows how to avoid them arriving broken at their destination. Philips monitors are good, but they include monitors badged for use with various computers, each with different video connectors. The Philips 8833 was widely advertised and badged by different computer manufacturers as their own. I used a badged Philips 8833 with another well known computer it's best not to mention here. I currently own 3 other types of classic computers, which are all fun and fairly easy to program in BASIC. SCART leads are available for all of them. It would be good if I could get a fairly clean Philips monitor without much wear and tear and with as many different video ports as possible. Unfortunately, it would probably have to be located in England or Wales. Even northern England or Scotland may be far enough for the monitor to break on the way. Can anyone tell me a fairly safe way a CRT monitor could be sent from the Netherlands, Germany, Belgium, or France, to me in London without it breaking? The postal service or courier should probably avoid bumpy roads and come through the Channel Tunnel, not by plane or ferry.

I'll plan to drag my MSX to my local VG shop today, maybe he can tell me what's wrong with my RGB cable. Without RGB a dedicated monitor would be pretty useless anyway
@CX5Mer: I suppose the best way would be for the seller to pad the box out as much as possible and maybe use insurranced shipping. This way you could at least blame the postal service^^'
As said I'd even settle for a simple small TV, if it wouldn't be so difficult to find one that has Scart and handles NTSC alike,
anyway I just made a thread in an other forum to see if someone has a recommendation in this regard. Wouldn't be the most elegenant solution, but if someone there knows a small TV that could work as well, I'll let you know what they say

Oi, sorry for the doublepost, but I just won an auction on a nice Sony PVM-20M4E
As it eats 50Hz and 60Hz it seemed like the best choice. Also the resolution seems very good and it's blocky enough to play games in Tate mode without the fear of demolishing my room. I just need to find a cheap SCART to BNC adapter now.
I love it when a plan comes together! :hannibal:

I got my monitor yesterday Big smile
It's a lot bigger than I even imagined, but luckily it still fits on my desk.
Now I just have to wait until my MSX' RGB out and cable get fixed and I'm still waiting for the SCART-BNC adapter to arrive, but I already hooked my Twin Fami and my MarkIII on it and even with AV only the picture is so wonderful. Can't wait to see how it looks with RGB. The scanlines also look very nice, and aren't too strong.

MarkIII is a bit blurry, but the Famicom has an almost perfect, sharp picture, though it's hardly noticeable in the other pics I shot.
I'm totally in love with my "Rad Box" :)

Wow.. that IS a monitor.

It looks like a professional Sony video monitor. I have to get one of those too, but they can get quite expensive, at least the ones I have seen for sale they were...

Enjoy it!

Its a old post, i know, I purchased a b&o mx 4000 tv for €25,- built-in a toggle switch to reach the service mode, i must say its a
astonishing tv realy good image and sound. For retro gaming verry good and verry cheap.
