 This is a great little monitor. I have one as well a several other NEC
multisync models. This was their first multi. They used to supply a 15pin
adaptor cable for it to do VGA. I have the adaptor
hack and a bunch of specs from NECs old page on this model that I could
send you if you like.
 This was in the features file:
Automaticallyscans all frequencies between 15.5 kHz and 35 kHz
Compatiblewith the IBM PC, PC/XT, PC/AT and compatibles.
Compatiblewith the IBM Professional Graphics Adapter (PGA),
    Enhanced Graphics Adapter (EGA), Color Graphics Adapter (CGA) and
    Video Graphics Array (VGA).
The monitor's wide compatibility makes it possible too upgrade boards
    or software without purchasing a new monitor.
Has a maximum horizontal resolution of 800 dots and a maximum
    vertical resolution of 560 lines.
Offersboth TTL and ANALOG signal inputs, and in the ANALOG mode
    can display an unlimited palette of colors depending on the graphics
    board and software being used.
Featuresa TEXT SWITCH with a choice of seven colors (red, blue,
    green, cyan, yellow, white and magenta) displaying word processing,
    spread sheets, data bases or other software in crisp alphanumeric text
    on a dark-bulb black ground.
Has a 14 inch diagonal display with a 13 inch viewing area.
