We are in need of a MultiMode 120 port approximately 2 inches in width, with the teeth measuring 1.5 inches. Picture available if necessary.

We were given monitors, and the port that comes with them is unusual as far as we can tell. As such, we are unable to connect the monitor to the tower we would like to use it with. We are looking for anyone with experience or knowledge to assist us in connecting them--whether we need a special video card or an adapter to connect them.

I have not seen those for awhile. That is a Macintosh monitor, what kind of computer are you hooking it up to?

If I remember correctly, the resolutions and refresh rates supported would not work with a PC, plus the monitor was only grayscale, check this link: http://findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_m0NE..._23/ai_12294864 and this

Oh, and :thumbsup: to bleeping computer

The information we have is that it was intended for both Mac as well as the PC, however, we are devastated at the realization that the plug's method of connectivity differs from anything we've ever seen. But we appreciate your reponse on this, and it is entirely possible that we'll have to forego this particular brand of monitors.

The MultiMode 120 only supported macintosh, the monitor is still grayscale, not color. The MultiMode 150 supported both Macintosh and IBM compatibles, but would still be grayscale. Take a closer look a picture # 3 in the first link I gave you. The pinout of the adapter does not match the cable end.

Thanks for the information. We're still processing your ideas, and trying to work with what we have.
