All You Need to Know About Buying Vintage Computer Monitors on eBay

Whether you're looking for a deal on an old computer monitor for your old computer or you're a vintage computer monitor collector, buying the right old monitor on eBay for your needs and desires requires knowing how to identify and evaluate old PC monitors.

How to shop for old monitors by brand

In that case, you either want to buy the same brand or a compatible brand of an old computer monitor for sale to make sure it will actually work. If, on the other hand, you're collecting vintage computer monitors, then you may have a specific brand or even model, you're looking for. There are far more brands of old monitors than there are of computers to go with them. Brands of old monitors include:

  • Apple
  • Atari
  • Commodore
  • Compaq
  • DEC
  • IBM
  • Packard Bell
  • Tandy
  • Zenith

How do I select old computer monitors?

Whether you're seeking a vintage computer monitor to use or collect, there's a chance you may need to buy it used if you can't find a new model of the particular old PC monitor you're seeking. Unless listed in brand-new condition or as "new in box," make sure any given monitor you're considering is at least in acceptable working condition before you buy it. Make sure it comes with its original power cord. The same goes for manuals, especially if you plan to use the monitor.

Features of old monitors

There are several different criteria by which computer monitors are differentiated, most notably the following:

  • Monochrome or color - Even if a monitor supports color, not all color monitors support the same number of colors. An old PC monitor may support 16 colors or 256 colors, among other possibilities.
  • Panel type - There are many different types of computer monitor panels, including CRT or cathode ray tube, and CCFL or cathode fluorescent lamp.
  • Resolution - How vivid a picture a given monitor can produce is indicated by the number of pixels it contains per square inch. Resolution is often displayed as 720p or 1080p, meaning those monitors have 720 and 1,080 pixels per square inch, respectively. The more pixels per square inch, the higher the resolution and the richer the image.
  • Port - Different old monitors connect to computers using different ports.
  • Screen size - Monitors will also differ in their screen size, normally listed in dimensions of length and width, but sometimes given as a single measurement of the diagonal length between two opposite corners.
