CD32 Expansion Slot

CD32 Expansion Slot has been designed specifically for Amiga CD32 and true to its name, provides a way to expand your Amiga's specs (with devices such as RAM memory expansion, MPEG decoder etc.). The one extra feature of this card is a VGA port (providing standard Amiga 15 kHz RGB signal).

I'm sure the CD32 Expansion Slot was a good idea at the time but a VGA out is of limited use. This is not VGA compliant so won't work with standard VGA monitors. Including a scan doubler would make more sense. Unless it was for an Amiga monitor. But it isn't the 90's anymore. Sorry to be negative but these days it's DVI or HDMI and 31KHz minimum or it just won't cut it with a modern display device. And also, where's the case?

I think it's interesting, because CD32 doesn't have the normal RGB port and you can't get a good quality output to Amiga monitors or TV:s from it. VGA->RGB adapter and it would work nicely with this device I guess.

But hmm.. the only reseller says "no longer in stock" and the price was about 60 euros, which sounds way too much for this simple device :/

In that case an Amiga RGB video port would have made more sense. Or a way to hook up either RGB or VGA to an Amiga or compatible monitor.
