The formac 20" does 1600x1200 (4:3), yet I had my sites on a widescreen LCD and my 17" PowerBook has 1680x1050, so a 20" formac isn't going to give me truly more space.
You lost me here...were you wanting to buy my old monitors?
Or did you think I was recommending them as a replacement for an ACD?
Neither is what I intended, although if you want to buy my monitors when I replace them I will gladly sell them to you at a reasonable price.
To the best of my knowledge, Formac is out of business in the US (where I am). And I am not sure that they are still in business in Europe either. Their monitor tech that I have seen online is several years old (hence my question as to whether they are even in business anymore).
The only monitors that I am considering purchasing at this time are new ACDs (if they ever come), NEC's professional series of monitors or refurbished ACDs if the price is right (I would view that purchase as a stop-gap not a solution).
Formac monitors were fine 5 years ago when I bought them, but today they are way behind modern capabilities.
