Quote from: Lawrence on April 02, 2011, 07:31:08 amI remember those TRU SNES displays. Watching Mario World on it was a magic experience. IIRC they used very tiny projection displays, I remember the plastic screen being grooved... At least, that's what I thought at the time - thinking back on it, it seems silly.But the first RGB experience for me was the reason I started GameSX: Trying to connect a MegaDrive to an Atari ST monitor. We could not have picked a less friendly monitor; everything from the connector to the relatively intolerant specs made it an impossible job. The closest we got was a non-stable image, but from this I learned about sync separators, refresh rates, pinouts and many other things. I also learned that there weren't any places on the net to find this stuff, so I started posting what I could scrape together and find out on my own.

I went home wondering why my SNES did not look like that, had no idea that what I was seeing was a RGB display.Then in 1997 or so, I was reading Die Hard Gamefan magazine and saw and add for RGB monitors. I started doing some research and was soon on my way to ordering my first 20" RGB monitor from MAS and have never looked back. I remember the first time I showed my friends the PSX and Saturn in RGB, they were blown away.
