ProView 17" TFT Installation

PCW have these on sale for 227.99, can they just be plugged in as a replacement for a CRT or is it a bit more complicated?

in a nutshell !yes.

No just plug it in as you would a CRT. One tip though is to set your refresh rate to 60Htz before connecting the monitor, or you may get a message on screen saying, "Signal out of range" and of course with no display you cannot find your way to the control panel to alter it! :o(

Once booted you can then set it to the recommended refresh, which will probably be 60 or 75Htz. j.

Think I'll get one tomorrow, it looked pretty good to me.

I wasn't ignoring your reply, I simply found it ambiguous, in a nutshell yes it is is plug and play, in a nutshell yes it is more complicated. It is either or.

Was just looking at that one myself. Looks like a trip to PCW tomorrow. :-)

i've got one of the earlier proview 17" tft's and apart from needing a new vga cable for i've had no problems.

i also remember that when i first turned it on , , the pc didnt find the monitor but the monitor found the pc.

i dont know anything about the new one's but mine has got an auto button it so whatever pc you plug it into with whatever setup the pc has , you just press the auto button and it adjusts itself.

whenever this one dies i will be getting another proview because a lot of the other tft's around the same price dont come close.

Yep, this one, (manufactured August 2003), has the Auto button. It WAS simply Plug'n'Play, and I'm still impressed with it!
