Yeah, I have noticed that too. I've been looking for a
black and white monitor for a Sun for a long time now.
Even the early color monitors are hard to find. With
the price of more modern monitors so low, most people
seem to have chucked these the first chance they got.
I haven't seen ANY fixed frequency monitors in a long
time, and not for lack of looking.
I remember coming across one monitor a long time ago -
I wish I could have gotten it, but it wasn't possible
at the time. It was an immensely heavy block of a 20
inch color monitor. Part of the casing had to have
been made of cast aluminum, the rest was really,
really thick plastic. And the back had exposed TO-3
case transistors mounted to the heat-sink block that
made up most of the back. It had BNC inputs and a
switch to allow sync on green. It might have been a
Hitachi, but I don't remember. It didn't have a base -
and wasn't designed to ever have one. It was vaugely
the same shape as an old Volker Craig terminal.
Incredibly heavy. Wish I had that one.
