Scratched glass on monitor

    I've seen lots of monitors that were built this way. Most Sony
    monitors made in the last 7 years or so are like this. Mitsubishi
    also used this method for their monitor CRTs. Most cheaper monitors
    just have the CRT face slightly frosted. Older expensive ones had the
    AR coating applied directly to the CRT.

    I don't know what this guy knows about electronics, but he has been
    posting a lot of crap on a support NG for sleep apnea and claims to be a
    sleep technician but tries to talk more like a doctor!

    You will find everything you wanted to know about me in my old posts
    back when I had more time to repair electronics as a side job back when
    EE life was good. All long time posters here have had some information
    from me in the past, mostly good.

    I am not sure why you did not read the latest bio to see where I have
    been and where I am now over at the other group.

    Actually, he's posted some pretty helpful stuff.

    He talks like a med tech because...well. If it's that important, he's
    posted the story of his professional quals over there.

    I don't think there's any reason to dismiss his expertise because he
    posts in two ngs or has experience in 2 fields. If there's reason to
    believe that his information is bad, then argue from there.

    Don't forget about the stuff that was on the edge of being rude,
    although it did help get a better feel for some of the personal
    experiences of some people though.

    Yes it is- the vast majority of consumers will just buy consumer grade
    cheapo monitors. I could have qualified my statement by saying '0.01% of
    people still buy high end CRT monitors', but I didn't think it was necessary
    in the context of the thread.
    I'm sure they are.That doesn't change the fact that most people will pay
    <100UKP for a 17" CRT monitor.

  7. You're just about to catch me on the top-posters list at my old e-mail
    address, which has been dead for quite awhile... :)

    Of course it is possible for a person to have expertise in more than
    one area...I never could get the mutually-exclusive idea that some
    people tend to adopt.

  8. Pay for a monitor? Are you crazy? I have picked up about 65 clean SVGA
    monitors in the last year for free. I only received one bad monitor so far. I
    have six high end CAD monitors that I don't have video boards for. Very few are
    the "El Cheapo" types.

    I envy you! ;-) I thought 40 quid for a 20" Sony 300SF was a bargain! Mind,
    that was about four years ago so I guess it was.

  10. Just let people know that you want monitors and old computers.
    You'll get a lot of them from people upgrading their equipment I picked
    up two computers, three monitors, and three printers today, along with a
    wad of cables, keyboards and mice and today was a slow day.
