That’s the famously heavy Trinitron-powered VRT19, the one that was on my hallway floor when you came to visit in happier climes. it’s a workstation monitor, RGB+sync-on-green and is for pretty much anything DEC with a 13W3 video connector. Not VT240/Rainbow. Remember me telling you about the static shock trick you could pull on people? :)
