    There are services like Buyee that will but from Japanese eBay/Yahoo/etc auctions, and add a fee on top to ship internationally.

    Not cheap, but useful if the seller won't ship outside of Japan.

    i thought so too, and even asked was he sure they were AT and not early ATX ones.

    seller responded they were AT, and one having a 486 era pc would mean its AT also, so not 100% sure on this one. so maybe the image is incorrect

    I really dont get it, I bought 2 new in box IBM 17" CRTS about 10 years ago for $1, for both, unopened, 2005 vintage still have them but its a temporary thing surely.....

    Its a screen where are the bloody 16:10 OLEDS GRRRRRRRRRR!

    I think the idea of crts will become obselete soon enough, cant believe im still waiting for gaming OLED monitors mid 2020.

    Sorry mofo. Picking up NOS CRTs is not on the list of reasons to be out of the house (even though I agree it should be)

    They'll certainly become obsolete soon enough if nobody makes any more. However for retro use, any fixed/native resolution screen so far seems than ideal. Regardless of how nice the colour and contrast are.

    A "considerable offer" could be what you or I would call a reasonable offer, ... plus a couple of zeros

    There are already two offers.
    I think we would all be curious to know how much those offers are.
    It is a good looking unit.
    Pity we wont get to know the selling price.
