    "I can't believe how much I paid for this . . . " . . . but I'm really glad you did. Great retro-tech video, an absolutely fascinating piece o' kit I'd never heard of. I'm with other commenters who voted against a teardown of this unit. Sounds like a working one is a rarity, and a teardown could well break something that can't be fixed. Do the teardown with one of those numerous non-working examples you heard about, keep this (or sell it on) as the impressive artifact it is. As your reactions suggest, it's something of an engineering triumph given the available tech at the time. And heck, in a completely darkened room where the contrast ratio wouldn't be quite so annoying, it could even be fun to use now and then.

    A CRT couldn't scan across a screen that wide without some major convergence issues, unless the gun was set back over 3 feet. That monitor would have to be huge to be a CRT.

    At the local Intel Lanfest in Sacramento, there is one guy that consistently brings this exact monitor to the even (pre Covid days at least). Was one big ass screen and you can see how it appears like 3 screens sort of stuck together, but it does appear to work fine and was years before the current crop of Ultrawides for sure. I brought one of the first LG Ultrawides to the event as well to demo and the size comparison, of what you have to unbox was quite staggering, as well as visual quality.

    I bought a DLP TV when it first came out. My friends would all come to my house to game until a week later when the bulb went out. I was of course pissed because it cost a shit ton, then when I replaced the bulb it literally blew up! Moral of the story, always wait to buy new technology until it’s thoroughly tested by other consumers. Don’t be the guinea pig and lose your money!
