    This was in my attic! It's the biggest CRT monitor I have ever seen. LOL I put my 13inch MBP next to it for comparison. Everything works on it but I have no idea what to do with it. LOL

    I used to have one of those big Apple CRT's. Gave it to my cousin about four years ago, still works. Nice fine.

    I think that's a Studio Display 21". Awesome find!

    Yeah it is the Studio 21inch with the 4 port USB hub. It's actually in really nice condition but I have zero use or room for it.

    This is why display dimensions exploded after LCD's became affordable (another innovation forced into the hands of the masses by Apple's drive forward).

    That thing calibrates itself so that it always knows it's displaying colors correctly. To this day, my best display is a CRT. It's just taking so long to get LCD's to such specs. Blacks, contrast, refresh speed and even lighting are still areas for improvement, whereas such professional monitors are near perfect.

    So you just found that there, like somebody left it behind? Damn, dude. Plug that thing up and play some iTunes visualizers!

    Ten years ago that was the highest end $1499 display you could get. Trinitron display that would automatically color calibrate throughout the life of the monitor. Too bad it weighs a ton. 1600x1200 resolution for a 21" screen is freaking fantastic.

    Watch out for the legs! I remember when we had these at work all shiny and new, and then within two weeks one had a broken leg, and then we had to level it out and break all the rest.

    It was a pretty sad solution, but the company had too much money and not enough sense!

    My father had one with his G4 PowerMac. The CRT ended up dying however, it would turn off etc, never had it fixed. We had to toss it. I saved the feet, the VGA cord, and the front plastic frame though. That was an awesome monitor.

    We replaced it temporarily with a 21" AppleVision display. Funny how the older display out-lived the newer one. But I still have fond memories of looking up to that massive screen when I was younger surfing the web and playing games. Ah :)

    You're lucky it didn't crash through the ceiling from the attic. I bet it weighs a ton.

    Bigger question, who carried it up there.

    I have an AppleVision still. I would like to gut it to put in an LCD, and a Mac Mini. The speakers on the Applevision I own are AMAZING. I think they actually sound as good as the iPod HiFi, which granted, isn't saying too much.

    I had the 17" Blue and White version of this monitor, and then I had the 15" Apple Cinema Display LCD panel. The 15" ACD was the first LCD panel monitor that Apple produced, and they sold this until they introduced the 17" and 22" ones with the Apple connector. I never owned a 21" CRT like this one, I had a 17" Apple Multiple Scan CRT before my Blue and White 17," both were 1024x768 monitors, but I believe the 21" was a 1280x1024 monitor, not 1600x1200. They weigh a ton, and you would not want to ship it (You could probably sell the monitor for around $100, but it would cost you like $70 to ship it)...best place to sell this might be a local Mac Usergroup or something like that, that's a great monitor and it can be used with any machine that uses a VGA connection (Apple used VGA with the 17" and the 15" Cinema panel as well). Good luck with whatever you decide to do with this beast!

    Believe it or not, you could get it to 1600x1200 at 85Hz (which was always important to me, as my eyes are pretty sensitive to flicker), but I ran the one I used to have at 1280x1024 - it just seemed like a more natural resolution to me for that size display.

    Boy was it heavy, though! :)

    I have one of those, that I got from a friend a year or two ago, with the original box still, it's really heavy, but a good monitor.
