I have couple of NEC Multisync LCDs as well, and they're nice because 
although they don't have a composite input as such they will handle the 
frame rates from older home computers.

Never had an Iiyama CRT, only their LCDs.  I have a couple of SGI-badged 
Trinitrons for Indys and two Acorn-badged Philips(?) which I keep 
because they're original for some of my machines and one also handles 
some newer stuff while living on a KVM switch.

Lots of 1280x1024 here.  4 of them on one machine :-)

I have a number of O2s - some with the "good" AV and some with the basic 
version, three Indys, four (I think) Indigos - all with different 
graphics options, and a full-rack Origin 2000 in my SGI collection.  Two 
still in day-to-day use, too.   Not the Origin, though it does make a 
good hair drier.
