Folk

Looking for one of the above, so I can get my vintage machines configured and running again.... I'm currently screenless as the LCD I was using has finally surrendered (it was 11 yrs old)

Thanks

Hey, have you listed a price, location and how much shipping would be to other parts of New Zealand? Also if you are asking for a PM make sure your Privacy settings allow your account to receive PM otherwise people can't contact you. Also note if you are selling something we ask you to offer to other members first. Links to private sales (including Trade Me posts) aren't accepted anymore and will be removed.

Horrible things, get a better picture form an Amiga RGB to SCART cable or Amiga RGB to svideo.

If you can afford to spend a little more I'd recommend getting an indivision ECS then you can use any LCD.  I have one of these, you can even stack more than one for dual screen. Plus you get some additional screen resolutions under workbench.

There are a few home brew options which are cheaper but not quite as good picture.

RGB to Svideo, Also kipper2 does internal IDE and extra RAM modules to pimp your Amiga :-)

Amigakit is a great store. Amibay.com is another great place for retro gear :-)

I agree. But both machines have picasso2 cards in them, so I only need a temporary jackup to get configuring before restoring normal service. Plus the machines are 20 years old, I really don't want to spend much, if anything on them anymore....

$35 for a RGB to Svideo or $10-$20 for a RGB to SCART isn't that bad ;-)

I've spent far too much on my A500/A1200/Pegasos. The A1200T is great for surfing the net and playing new release games that are coming out. I have workbench at 1080p looks great. The A500 is a good WHDLoad machine and the Pegasos box can also be used on a daily basis for surfing/email etc :-)

FPGA accelerators that are soon to be released should breath even more new life in to them :-)
