Studio Display (17” LCD) for sale sold!

asd17I love how resaleable Apple products are. Thanks to everyone who was interested!

I’m finally at the point where I can afford (and justify) upgrading to a bigger monitor, so it’s time to sell my 17” LCD studio display. I’ve had it for just over two years, and it has performed brilliantly throughout.

If you’re a specs-geek, check out the official 17” ASD page. There’s also an overview in PDF format on the displays. Don’t forget: you either need a computer that has a ADC port (Powermac G4 Gigabit models and higher), or a DVI port and a converter like the Apple DVI to ADC adapter.

With the aforementioned adapter, this display may also be used with the DVI Powerbooks, or (apparently) even a DVI-enabled PC, though I’ve never tried that myself.

There is a single dead pixel located approximately a inch away from the right-hand side of the screen, which I honestly never notice, but people purchasing LCD’s usually want to know about these things, so there you have it. I should also mention that this display is covered by an Extended AppleCare warranty until November, 2004.

If you’re interested, get in touch with me. I’m asking $650 Cdn, which at the time of this writing is around $490 US, and I’ll ship anywhere that the buyer is willing to pay for.

I originally made the move to LCD displays due to rather severe eyestrain caused by glaucoma, and haven’t regretted it for a moment. This really has been the most beautful, highest quality display I’ve ever used, and after years of headaches, blurry vision, and other eyestrain-related annoyances, the trouble-free peace of the Apple LCD’s has been a godsend. Once you’ve tried one, using a standard CRT seems like a compromise.

If you were wondering what I’m upgrading to, I’m sticking with the tested and true: an Apple 20” cinema display. Of course, this means that display updates are due any day, as I seem to have the uncanny ability to purchase Apple products just before they release new, upgraded versions. Heh.


Speaking of visual beauty, the Mac OS X screensaver entitled Hotel Magritte is possibly one of the strangest, and most beautiful things I’ve ever seen.

Check out the screenshots.
