I recently purchased a SGI GDM-17E21 monitor, which unfortunately did not
come with a HDB15 to HDB15 cable similar to that bundled with O2 systems.
As such, I traveled to my local computer retail chain in search of the
"best" HDB15 to HDB15 monitor cable they had. After repeated assurances
that the Belkin "Gold-Plated" cable was as capable as the snake-like cable
shipped with O2, systems I bought it.
Much to my dismay, with the new cable, the formerly rock-steady and razor
sharp image on the GDM-17E21 turned to a blurry, wavy, ghost-filled one.
Does anyone know of a good source where I could get such a cable? SGI
perhaps? It is about 1/4" thick, has molded connectors on each end, and
has a torus magnet molded onto each end. The part number on the sheath of
my cable here at work says "018-0530-001 REV E VIST 9707".
