    I'm thinking about picking up an old Mac LC III or LC475. With the DB15 to VGA converter, are either of these machines capable of outputting to a basic LCD monitor? I have a much newer PowerMac that handles it perfectly, but what should I prepare for when using either machine with an LCD screen (if that's even possible)? Thanks!

    You will have no problem at all. It is convenient, however, to have a configurable DB15 to VGA converter (with switches or turning wheel, they're all pretty efficient), so that you can select a screen resolution that suits your LCD. :apple:

    I use an LCD display with my Quadra 605 and have no problems.

    Thanks for the replies. My DB15 adapter arrives tomorrow, so I'll be able to give the LC III a try on a used 17-inch monitor some time tomorrow. Will try to remember to post my findings.

    Sorry for the late response. It works wonderfully. I used a basic setting for a 17-inch LCD monitor with no problems. If you have any subsequent questions about the process, let me know via PM!

    I got a DB15 adapter a good few years ago, one with lots of dip switches for different settings.
    Works great on my macs. Was lost without it. Works on all my LCD's.
