I just picked one of these up for really cheap. I'm hoping once I get the adapter I need that it will perform like its big brother and scan down to 15khz.

Anybody ever used one of these with an Amiga?

Yeah, 2 similar ones but no luck, only seems to works so far with the newer dell wide screens :(

Hmmm, I'd really hoped it was the same as with the 20" version and would work. I'll see what happens when the adapter arrives and if it's a no-go I'll just sell it .

I just checked the ones that didn't work for their model number:

20.1" Dell 2005FPW
19" Dell SE198WFPy

The ones I have that do work are a:

Dell ST2320 and ST2220, both of these also have HDMI and are newer models.

The 1st 2 models mentioned I picked up cheap like you, the newer ones weren't so cheap, more like regular modern widescreen price (which is still not real bad).

No luck. Neither the 1801fp nor 1905fp I also bought recently support 15khz.

Looks like the only fool-proof way to know if to check if there's composite input: all models with composite input support 15khz (if you'll think a bit it's not surprising: why would you add a composite input without support for 15khz mode?): 2001FP, 2408WFP, 3008WFP, etc. Newer models without composite input sometimes reuse electronics and then support 15khz mode, older models couldn't do that.

I never thought of that. Makes sense. Ich bin Ihnen sehr dankbar für diese Information. :yourock:

I'm going to test this as soon as I can.

I don't need to worry anymore. I just bought a pair of Dell 2001fp units with soundbar. They are both manufactured before June 2005 after which some say they were no longer capable of scanning down to 15khz.

One plus a spare for half of the cost many are asking for a single on TheOtherBay. (y)

P.S. they just happen to have a composite input. :cool:

I have the 2408WFP and it does not work with 15kHz input on VGA despite having both Composite and S-Video connectors. I tested using the Commodore adapter and my own custom cable which works fine with the 2001FP monitor.

I stand corrected then. I have no idea why they would do that, but apparently logic is a topic not known for monitor makers...

Interesting. I'm glad I never bought yet another monitor to try and now will have one that works.
