Saw that a Sony KV-25XBR was listed near me, inquired about it only to find out it had been trashed by the owner :( That legit saddens me, and ruins my day :( I would have picked it up, even though I already have one, to save it from the trash and give it a new lease on life. It sucks to see a beautiful RGB monitor like that, especially one so special in North American crt history, get sent to the bin :(


Oh no. :(

Yep, it blows :(



In other news, I just found a line of Component-capable curved Trinitrons, which is something I've been wanting to catalog for a while, but couldn't find a single model number till now. From what I know there were few of those. I actually grew up playing on one in my teens, but can't remember the model number.

But in the meantime I've found this line : https://www.manualslib.com/manual/91766 ... =41#manual

32XBR48
34XBR48C (this one is a 220v set)
35XBR48
35XBR88
37XBR48M

Looks pretty good! Look at dat 2nd pic :

I think there may be another line of curved component-capable sets released in NA(the one we had didn't any the XBR branding), and I'd like to find which one is it.

Anyone own one of the 4:3 Hitachi plasmas, and have an opinion on them?

Even more unlikely: an opinion on them compared to the PDP-V402? Hopefully less bland blacks?

Have a chance to pick up a couple of them and am curious if it'll be worthwhile!

I think the the Hitachis are XGA instead of VGA. You should be aware of that, depending on the content you want to display.

XGA native indeed, but will take in VGA and even 15khz according to the manual!

I'm mostly just hoping it doesn't have the weak blacks that the pdp-v402 suffers from.

The blacks are visibly better than on the Pioneers, but you have to deal with the scaling if you input 15 or 31khz.

But all things aside, if they don't cost a fortune, I'd always pick up any 4:3 plasma screen I can find.

What should I be looking for in the cheap but serviceable RGB Scart to HDMI converters? Some lag is fine as it would just be for group saturn bomberman messing around mostly.

That's kind of where I was sitting with it. I was going to pick one up, but may be able to swing a deal on multiple which is why I figured I'd ask for some input. If it was just one, I'd have snatched it up and just found out for myself.

Thank you for your thoughts!
