FYI, they're these: https://www.cnet.com/products/samsung-syncmaster-2443bw-lcd-monitor-24-series/specs/
24", 1920x1200, VGA/DVI In.

Looks like there are 20 of them (6 boxes of 3? +2), at least two of which are marked as having dead backlights.

I'll put a boxes in the makerspace, and put one aside for Greg. Anyone else, I guess it's first in-best dressed? They are up stairs at Pachamama (21 Gordon Ave, Hamilton East), outside the kitchen. Come in any time during office hours, or when ever you see light on there might be people in. If you need to get access at some other time, email me, and we can arrange something.

Cheers

Hello, they are 24" LCD Samsung monitors that have been in service 5 years 24/7, some do have burn in. I don't think it is too bad or makes them unusable. I will be able to pick up any monitors that don't find a home. I have been able to get the stands from the new monitors, they will work with a small modification.

I plan to drop them off at the space ASAP. When is it open or someone available to receive them next?

I am hoping that the MakerSpace itself will take get first priority.

I also have a few monitors that I am told are likely to have a blown inverter transformer and or caps. I am told they probably could be fixed with a few cheap parts and a soldering iron.

Are we talking old-school CRT models? Or useable LCDs, etc...?

I might have a home for two.

Hey Greg,

I'd be happy to take one monitor for my personal use if you'd have one available. I live next to the Crowne Plaza so am happy to come and pick up whenever. Thanks.

I could use a couple, so if several extra were left at the MakerSpace, I would find good uses for them.

Alas there comes a time in every monitors life when you get removed from active service and placed in a cupboard in some cold store room.

I may be able to get 5 to 10,  24" monitors without stands. If I can get them would anyone have a good home for these monitors?
