3) Are there any video or sound artefacts, e.g. ghosting, mouse trails, or similar?
I can solder but I'm not very good when it comes to electronics theory, so will only be able to build from easy to follow diagrams and components if they are available.
My previous efforts at getting such a video connection working only got as far as this thread: viewtopic.php?f=15&t=17153
1: no, it needs to be a monitot that cn display the STs low refresh rate. not all VGA monitors can do this.
2: yes, assuming you get a monitor that can do ST low. nearly all VGA monitors can do ST High
3: in my experience, no. I have one of the adapters and have used it with a few monitors, and it's exceptional quality
Ah, so this is not quite exactly what I was looking for, I'm looking for a modern replacement for my SC1435 (one that I can easily buy off the shelf, as it were, and replace when needed).
Besides the forum post I already linked to, does anyone know of a working solution that doesn't have any artefacts or ghosting etc for ST Low on any VGA monitor?
