1 year off isn't too bad.

It doesn't need termination unless you have an external device hooked to
it. (The <1in length of the connector from the controller should fall
within acceptance of the SCSI spec. I heard that the SCSI-1 spec didn't
even require termination. Is there truth to that? ) I've never seen a
DEC terminator that fits that plug (68-pin male).

I don't know the DEC monitors numbers right off, but I think if it worked
with the VSII than it will probaby work with the VS3100. It's monochrome
(unless you have the GPX or SPX cards), and runs at something like
1152x800 _at_70Hz. (I really don't remember the exact numbers.)
