A perfect match - NeXTstation Turbo Color and Eizo L661

Hi,

I was just looking around for a new hard disk for my MacBook Pro when I found a used Eizo FlexScan L661 18" TFT screen at a local computer shop. I remembered it supported sync on green, so I bought it for the (IMHO) low price of 89 Euros.

The L661 has two VGA inputs and works perfectly with a non-ADB TurboColor slab using a 13W3->VGA adapter cable. There are three picture modes: normal (with a black border of about 2cm around the edges), expanded and full screen. The latter two scale the picture up which reduces the sharpness of the picture, but also works fine. I prefer the normal mode, however.

Just one thing could be improved: Eizo also built a black version of the L661. Mine has, however, the standard white/cream plastic case. But I won't complain ;-).

I can shoot some pictures of the setup if you're interested.

I'm interested in some shots. I've been wanting to get an LCD for awhile.
After an apparent 15ish year hiatus... I'm baaaaack! :D (12/12/2023)
