Here is a previous post of mine:

I think my 91TXM is fantastic too.  It is much better than the
Panasonic S21 I first bought, IMO (which is basically the same as the
Viewsonic P810 and also uses the same tube as the P815, AFAIK).

Yes, it is.  It even has a dedicated button for switching so
navigating the OSD isn't necessary to switch inputs like with the
Panasonic\Viewsonic models.  As I understand it, the 87TXM (the 17"
Mitsubishi model) only outputs the BNC signal when a BNC cable is

Yes, at some resolutions Moire is noticeable.  However, the picture on
the 91TXM is really -fantastic-, it has a Moire adjustment that can
overcome much of the Moire when it is present, and only certain
screens show noticeable Moire anyway.  I run 1280x1024 mostly, and I
don't notice Moire most any time.  I've noticed Moire often occurs
when the Win95 Shutdown dialog is on screen along with the "greyed
out" "about to shutdown" effect... I've found Moire is more prevalent
on that screen with many monitors.
