Anyone got a spare monitor they're not using? I'm after one of the following, in order of preference:

NEC 4FG / 4FGe - had one, it died, I stupidly binned it instead of fixing it :(

Commodore 1960 - would be ideal.
Commodore 1901 - originally designed for the 128, easy conversion to Amiga use (if I can find the instructions anymore!)
Commodore 1080 - great match for the 1000.
Commodore 1942 - hmm...
Commodore 1084 - Old faithful

Drop me a PM / email if you have one :)

@Chiark

I know this wasn't one of your options listed but I've got a Philips CM 8833.

It worked perfectly last time I used it. If you're interested in it - I could give it a good soak testing tomorrow.

davideo, I'd really prefer a commodore unit as it's to match the 1000... I used to work in a computer shop part time and know that the Philips is the better monitor - side by side, there was no comparison!

I might very well take you up on that offer if I get no joy though, thanks!

No problem.

As I use my PC flat screen with my 4000D (by monitor switch) it's spare to my requirements anyway.

I may even soak test it over the weekend as I need to raise a bit of cash to support my 4000D and then put it up on here for sale.
