Craig 15" TV/Mon?

There have been several threads regarding this product. However, I can not find this monitor anywhere. I saw them a while ago on ebay, there were quite a few of them, hwoever they are ALL gone.

Anyone know of another place to get his item? Even an alternative item would be good.

The craig was reviewed by several users here as being a pretty good field monitor.

no its NOT, you want one :-) i got 2.
the viewing angle ticks me off to no end, especially when i saw ones in the store for only 150% what it costs that had a full viewing angle.

The tuner is complete junk, grr, cant watch SYFY in HD, the more data the worse it works.

The color is wacked due mostly to what seems like a Backlight with no usefull spectrum, so the reds are wackey looking, fleshtones yuckey.

the face is not only shiney, but the longer i have it the more i notice that the glass isnt perfect either

its Totally lightweight, has an amasing array of inputs, costs nearly nuthin, hooked up to S-video, Vga , HDMI, and tuner , and composite. and amasingly during the time i had it i have used all of them, with limited sucess with tuner.
is very lightweight, could hold it up with a mic stand boom, and uses 12V, which still makes it great for portability.

but i tell ya if you cant find one, JUST get out to the store and find something in about that size that does all that and costs a bit more, you will be happier with it.
try to find one with a much better viewing angle (twisted matrix lcd valves) and a backlight that has red , or a fuller spectrum, and a antiglare screen.
