Hi, I wanted to share my experience on TFT screens for the NeXTstation TurboColor.
I tried many flavors of the Dell branded TFT screens (1908f, 20", 22", 24") but all of them had the one or the other issue (fuzzy screen, cropping, blurry lines). Recently I bough a used NEC 1980SX from ebay and used the described method above to adjust it.
I am blown away - the OS never looked better before. Perfect screen - super crisp and only a 1 inch black line on each side (and you can live with it, when you see the display result).
I can only suggest - get the NEC Multisync 1980SX.

right now I'm in the process of acquiring a NEC MultySync 1980FXi (this is the successor of the 1980SX). I'll let you know if this particular model also gives a pixel-perfect picture when connected to black hardware.

also, there were new models announced by EIZO a few weeks back. the model FlexScan S1923 might be an option in the future. I particularly like them for having an LED backlight.

I can confirm that the NEC MultiSync LCD1980FXi gives an absolutely stunning and pixel-perfect picture when connected to a NeXT system. plus, it looks quite NeXT-ish design-wise, if one gets the black model like I did. and they're cheap: I got mine for only 15 bucks (swiss francs).

I haven't posted in quite some time, but I thought I would chime in.

The Eizo L675 can be had for dirt on eBay and it works perfectly with NeXTs. I had a black one and the design cues even fit wonderfully

I just ordered the 1980Fxi. Will report back to the forum.
This issue with display hardware is new to me. I had a big a55 Next monitor that didn't wake up and now in monitor heaven...

Confirmed. 1980Fxi worked "out of the box"
Nextstep looks so beautiful in a modern LCD!! Wow.. I was used to the dim Sony monitor..

I'm happy again!

I have a turbo slab (color) with ADB. Worked perfectly without even configuring a thing..

Nice ..Is that the 3d kit ? Pixar Renderman!

I used the 3d kit for a NeXTstep project at SFSU back in 1995 at their NeXT Lab where they had a ton of different workstations...Even the cube hooked up to a giant NeXT monitor which I have yet to see in these forums.

Sad I heard the NeXT Lab was retired and I have no idea where all that awesome black hardware went. Hopefully to the black hole and not the recycle center.

The NEC multisync 1990SX does seem to have a thinner black frame than the Dell.

Maybe that's the winner?

Can you post NeXTSTEP running on the NEC multisync 1990SX?
