@Cosmic Puppet I guess that means your other VGA adaptor is giving reasonable results with the Benq monitor?

Not ordered that yet @JezC

Will be able to order on Wednesday.

It looks best in Low Res.

It's darker colours and black that show up the lines.

It's quite useable. It's just in Medium it's terrible and the High Res is useable but not crisp.

If all I did was play games I would probably be happy.

Ordering a NEC MultiSync EA193Mi 19" on Wednesday. If that goes well, I'll be selling this one.

@Cosmic Puppet Isn't there any way you can return to to Amazon for a refund?

I'd already got the monitor & didn't buy it exclusively for using with the Atari (plus it can be used with my Falcon & a VGA cable adaptor) so it does OK for now (and I have a couple of CRT mono monitors for music use) but will be interested to hear how the new monitor behaves for you.

I've just set that in motion @JezC

I'll do it tomorrow morning. Bummer that the parcel place is only open between 7-9am but it will recoup half the money I'll be splashing out.

If the high res works and the low is so so, I'll be happy. Just want the option to play games and demos. Doesn't have to be perfect. Notator how ever needs to be as clear as possible as I'll spend a lot of time staring at it. :lol:
