WTB: DEC Video Terminal


#1

Does anyone have a VT05, VT50, VT100, VT200-series (e.g. VT220, VT240), VT320 or something else from around that era, in working condition? (Maybe with base, cables and LK-type keyboard included as well, that would certainly be nice).

In W. Europe would be most practical for me, but depending on the shipping costs I might consider international shipping as well.


#2

Not a lecture, but what i seen myself: tubes are fragile, and much of sellers decline messing with international or even in-country mail shippings.


#3

I know… It’s not high on my list, but an original smooth-scrolling DEC Video Terminal would be great to have! Or else I could convert my Multia into one, with the LK463 connected to it. (Except, it wouldn’t have a nice CRT monitor.)


#4

You probably remember, but smooth-scrolling can be disabled in options of terminal.


#5

I know, but, why would I want to do that? I then might as well use any terminal emulator. (Especially as I’d like it, so one could glimpse longer listings.)


#6

You want terminal just because of this feature? I’m more about it’s uniqueness and retro feelings.


#7

No, not just, but it’d definitely be one of the unique reasons (i.e. things that aren’t done properly by terminal most emulators). And yes, your one is very nice.
