List of modern monitors that support 15 kHz analog RGB signals


Requirements

A list of modern flat panel (LCD, OLED) monitors that directly support analog 15 kHz signals through discrete RGB connectors (VGA, DVI-A, and/or SCART). (Note that Component video is actually YPrPb.)

"Full" 15 kHz RGB Support in the table below means it supports 15kHz signals at least as well as a CRT:

  1. The monitor requires no external scan doubler (such as an XRGB-mini or OSSC) or other powered devices to correctly process analog 15 kHz signals through the RGB connector. Only unpowered adapters are allowed for "full" support.
  2. The monitor is able to display the image centered and in the proper aspect ratio (4:3), shows every pixel of the source signal, and doesn't waste screen space. This means black or grey bars at the top and bottom (but not sides) of a 5:4 monitor and on the sides (but not top or bottom) of a 16:9 or 16:10 monitor.
  3. The monitor supports 240p/288p and 480i/576i and is usable in these modes without annoying flicker, at least not more annoying than a CRT's flicker.
  4. If the user needs to manually center or stretch the image, the settings persist across screen mode changes and power cycles.

"Partial" support deficiencies should be noted in the comments.

This one can even handle interlaced modes of Commodore Amiga 500 and 1200 and ATARI Falcon 030. Has vertical stripes with many games (depending on their precise vertical refresh rate, like 49,8Hz or 49,9Hz), which can be compensated by using the 'automatic' setting in a game that actually works fine without stripes (i.e. Xenon II). There is an optional stereo soundbar with 3.5 inch connector available for this monitor, which can be attached to the bottom of the monitor. PAL-HiRes does NOT work right! The image is vertically stretched about twice the display's height!The monitor and soundbar was available in white and blgack/silver color. https://id.nec.com/en_ID/products/display-products/desktop-monitor/business-monitor/nec-multisync-lcd1970nxp.html
