I had no idea there was a 1084 with a bezel looking like the 1950. Thanks for sharing!

No worries.

There are a whole bunch of Philips and Daewoo based Commodore monitors that look like this including the 1083, 1084 & 1085. Here's a great resource that even has pics:

PS, the 1950 does look a bit different tho:

Btw, Wagner Online have sent me a new Power switch so hopefully it'll arrive shortly.

  • If you can buy it for 4$ on eBay, why design it?

I'm just baffled by the sheer amount of monitor models C= pumped out. Why so many?

They were all made by 3rd parties so that likely has something to do with it. They did also have to keep adding support for different video standards in use by the Vic20, c64, c128, PC and Amiga models

And lets not forget the various world voltage standards 110v & 220v plus the different power/video frequencies 50hz and 60hz.

So my replacement switch arrived yesterday and has now been installed. The monitor works great with Analogue RGB (picture is perfect) but I'm seeing some weirdness with TTL-RGB (aka CGA), picture is soft and colours are weird (white text is pinkish and soft) so it looks like I might need to check a few more things on it.
