I'm looking for a MSX2 computer including a matching screen. My dream setup would be a Sony HitBit F700, but I'm open to any offers that are in working condition. Thanks so much!

Where are you located? Screens are nasty to ship...

I'm in Switzerland. Yeah, I understand that the shippment of a screen is a bit troublesome, but having a matching screen is really important to me.

Wha do you mean 'matching' anyway? Same color/brand/series case? Or that it works with it?

Same brand and color is a must. Same series would be great, for example I really like the HB-F700P and KX-14CP1 combo. Or the Philips NMS8250 and VS0080. Things like that. I doesn't have to be a keyboard/machine separate setup though; I also like the Sony HB-F1XV, I'm just not sure which Sony screen would be a good match for it.

The Sony KX-14CP1 was used a lot in laboratories, TV studios and so on, maybe you could find this monitor in local secondhand stores or websites but they are normally quite expensive. In my opinion there is an easier solution as I did with Sony HB-F1XV, buy a black 14" Sony Trinitron RGB TV to get the MSX looking as Sony did and announced in MSX-MAGAZINE or MSX-FAN:

Yes, I fully agree. That is indeed a nice setup! Have you got any product numbers of such Sony 14" screens?

For example KV-14M1E, KV-M1450, KV-1442 (the suffix may change depending on the country). There are several models and of course you can buy a bigger screen LOL! . Normally these TV are quite old so if you want the most recent go for a KV-14CT1E, one of the latest 14" Trinitron CRT TV made by Sony even available in 21". Yes it's not black but the screen is completely flat and the picture quality is superb.

Don't forget that RGB connector is a must Wink

Great, thanks! I'll try to get such a model if I'll be able to get a HB-F1 Smile
