I am using the SUN 530-2917-01 VGA to 13W3 adapter cable with my TurboColor and a NEC LCD and it works beautifully. It is about 12" long, plugs into the monitor VGA receptacle and the NeXT Y-cable plugs into the 13W3 SUN adapter. The only remaining little thing that would make it 100% perfect is change in colour from SUN grey to NeXT black.

Thanks, I just grabbed one NIB off eBay for $9. Now I need to find a home for my NeXT 21" color CRT. I don't want it taking up space any longer.

Nice.

How often do you use it? What do you do with it?

Where can one get a NeXT video connector (slab) to VGA converter? I know a Sync On Green screen would be required, etc.

Any source? Thanks.

The VGA converter got it from Ebay, years ago Sad

I picked up some adapters from monoprice or Amazon for a system in the past that worked. I think it required two adapters, a 13w3 to vga and a vga gender changer.

Here is a thread that talks about it and has some pics of one from ebay.
