Fantastic monitor. I have both my Amiga 500 using RGB adapter to VGA and Amiga 1200 with Indivision to DVI working a treat. I'm tempted to get another as a backup!

Perfect for retro gaming on an Amiga :) You wouldn't want to use this on any modern machine though!

It came in excellent condition, and it works excellently with my old Amiga 3000 computer using the computer's VGA port and RGB port (because the BenQ can scan down to 15 KHz).
