Found this googling for TFT monitors that can sync to the Amiga signal. Looking at the data sheet it says:

Sync Range: Horizontal Scan - 15Khz (PAL/NTSC), 30Khz-80Khz
Vertical Scan - 50 - 70Hz

--

So, this can just plug to the Amiga RGB port, via an adapter, amirite?

If so, I'll be calling them tomoro to find out how much they want for one, they're about 5 minutes from my house!

Looking at the website I would say you could however the 10ms response times are bit slow by todays standards, you might see some ghosting.

Also, I dread to think how much they are as they look specialist and dont show a price! :wooha:

Good point, it does look doubtful that I'll save anything over buying a scandoubler. I'll ring them anyway I think just to find out, also maybe see if they've got any old stock laying around that they want to offload cheap to a local boy.

I did just notice in that datasheet, the input is RCA, 15-d or DVI-D. So that'd need an adapter to fit to my VGA switch, which in turn fits to an adapter to my Amiga's RGB. :-/ More trouble than it's worth apparently.

Apparently certain Eizo Flexscan models sync correctly, I've been keeping an eye on ebay for one for a couple of weeks, will have to persevere.

They are heavy duty jobbies and designed to be in very much non office work enviroments. Expect to be well into the 100's for one of these. =/

I'm currently using an Iiyama ProLite H430 monitor. It has two DVI-I, a composite video and an S-Video for inputs.

The composite is a quick 'n' simple solution to the problem, but if you get a simple Amiga-VGA and a VGA-DVI-A adapter, the monitor will happily accept it.

It's not quite as good as a proper SD/FF, but it works well for me. Depends on how cheap you can pick one up. If they're <£50 it's worth considering, otherwise, spend the cash on an SD/FF and use a better monitor :)
