Which monitor is that? I don't think I have seen one of those before.

I love these W.I.P threads, document it well jailer! :D

That monitor is a Commodore 1084ST. I've got one of those that was given to me for free with my A4000 many years ago.

It's basically a 1084 monitor, but in a more PC VGA style casing with a tilt and swivel base, so more suited to the big box Amigas than the 1084S with its flat fixed base.

One thing I have noticed about the 1084ST is that it seems to generate a lot more charge than a standard 1084S. You can feel it when using one and it generates a noticeable humming frequency that can give you a headache after some time using one. And it isn't just my one. A friend's is also the same. I prefer using Philips Monitors instead of Commodore ones.

All my 1084s used to do that high pitched humming noise, the rest of the family couldnt hear it but I could pretty much tell from any room in the house if I had left one on. :wink:
