TCO: TCO ’99 (CML181) or TCO ’95 (CML181B)
*While the displays will support Macintosh - they do not support ADC (the Mac proprietary bundled digital connector) so panels are analog only Mac compatible.
**While all displays will do resolutions of 640 x 480, 800 x 600 and 1024 x 768 up to their prime resolution listed above, they do so by using smoothing algorithms that reduce the crispness of the picture. This is standard for flat panel technology and we do not recommend extended use at anything other than the prime resolution listed above. Depending upon the application and video card the best refresh rate may be at 60 or 75 Hz.
