That same seller had them listed for $15 at some point, but then I guess restocked and now wants way too much money.

They will accept best offers, accepted my $45 offer and just received today. I'm actually trying to use it with a PCJX. Agree it is pretty expensive, but seems RGBI monitors are few and far between these days. Would be nice if they were less expensive, but it's a fairly niche product and I'm glad it exists! I believe they do have the schematic posted on their website, so theoretically you could have your own batch made if you were to design the PCB for the components to go onto.

What do you all use to double the scan frequency? Seems the GBS-8200 is the standard from what I've read.

Yes, that is what I use. There are two options the CGA2RGB and the BIT-C-128 Video DAC form www.bit-c128.com/. I have the C128 one, but I understand the CGA2RGB is a little better.
