SGI Silicon Graphics 1600W 17 Flat Panel Monitor

The 1600SW is a widescreen flat panel video monitor from Silicon Graphics introduced in 1998. It won many awards after release and sold 54,000 units. It is notable for longevity, with used models still actively traded on eBay a decade later, despite the difficulty of adapting the monitor to run with modern video cards, due to the 1600SW's OpenLDI video interface.

Our 1600SW is boxed with all the original documentation.

Date : 1998
