Samsung SyncMaster 750S White 17" CRT Monitor

I bought this monitor several weeks ago in second hand condition, actually I was planned to bought the new 15 inch CRT monitor on the computer shop near my home, but the owner of that shop asked me if I want to bought one of several used monitors from his game rental, he planned to change them with LCD. The monitors that he told were 17 inch Samsung 750s, and the best deal was when he told to sold it at Rp.350,000 (around US$ 38), when the market price for second hand 17 inch monitor is around Rp. 400,000 to Rp. 450,000 (US$ 44 to US$ 49).

Then at home I plug it on my Ge-Force 6200 graphic card on my computer and whoa a big screen display appear in front of me, I change the desktop resolution to 1024 x 768 pixels, and the first thing I did was installing the “Rise of Nation” game that previously cannot be played on my old 14 inch monitor, because this game need minimum 1024 x 768 screen resolution to be played.

This is a good old monitor with enhanced technology, the maximum resolutions is 1280 x 1024 with 0.23 mm dot pitch, and 90 watts maximum electric consumption.
