  • GS: Nishida Radio makes a very nice internal VGA adapter for ROM3 GSes. For those of us with a ROM0/1, we must look elsewhere. This is ultimately the best option for using modern monitors with a GS. Nishida Radio
  • IIc: Nishida also makes a bolt on solution for the Apple IIc (NTSC version only). This adapter connects to the RGB port on the IIc and converts to VGA while also allowing you to individually set the RGB levels as well as select from a scanline or clean mode. Not quite available yet but a great looking solution once it arrives. Nishida Radio
