    Default Anyone used BenQ 15khz monitors?

    Hi, Sorry if this is in the wrong section.
    I was wondering if anyone has had any experience with the 17" and 19" BenQ monitors that handle 15khz modes. Namely the BL912 and BL702a.
    I have read plenty of people singing the praise for them with Amiga and other computer use, but I want to know if anyone has used them for consoles.

    I play a few retro game events and currently lug around a 20" sony trinitron because I'm not happy with scart RGB on a 16/9 LCD TV. Mostly I play Megadrive, Saturn, SNES and PCE. I'm used to making my own custom RGB cables so that's not a problem.

    I'd also use it on my Amiga's.


    Thanks

    I had the 702A until a couple of months ago. Worked great with no problems. All you will need is the vga adaptor

    I think I've found the answer and they wont work for games consoles (except the CD32).
    No consoles have the horizontal and vertical Sync needed to the monitors, they only have Composite and RGB sync that not the same I believe.

    Composite sync works too at least with Amigas (if you have the patience to switch the settings everytime):

    And sync on green works the same way.

    Ok, that's interesting!
    All consoles can use c-sync as far as I know.

    I might get then monitor after Christmas. Even if I cannot use it for Megadrive, saturn SNES etc, but it looks hopeful.

    The Dell 2001fp (June 2005 and earlier I think) is worth some research too. They're often cheap on the other bay - I bought two for less than £30 each). They have VGA, DVI, svideo and composite in. They will sync to 15khz and will do 50hz stutter free. The only snag is the rgb from the Amiga is initially not centralised so on each turn-on you need to recentre it it with the menu.
