RiscPC/Archimedes Monitor recommendations?

Post by mark71 » Sun May 24, 2020 9:55 am

Hi All

A quick question but most likely a complex answer, what are your recommendations for sourcing a LCD replacement montiors that will work with RiscPC's?, having a AFK18 monitor that still works but am looking for something a bit more modern and not so bulky to use on my venerable 32bit Acorn kit.

BenQ BL912 or BL702 both have VGA connectors and also can display the 15kHz modes without needing an adaptor.

Thanks for the tip, bought a BL702A from Amazon for 94.99, works a treat on the A420/1 and the RiscPC, 1280x1024 for the the latter really nice picture too.
