Commodore 1701 serial 12671829 made in Japan. Commodore 1084S serial XT4241474 made in Korea.
Commodore made a wide range of monitors, giving a more stable picture than a regular tv set.
The 1701 is a colour monitor with a 13 inch screen. It has inputs for composite video and audio at the front and separate inputs for sound, luminance and chroma at the rear. The 1701 is suitable for the whole range of Commodore 8 bit computers but was superceded by the 1702 which looked the same.
The1084S can handle composite video and luma-chroma-audio such as from the Commodore 64 as well as RGBI and RGB inputs. This makes it suitable for a wide range of sources as well as all Commodore computers. Both 40 column and 80 column displays are supported.
Both of my monitors have suffered a common problem: the cover over the front control panel has broken off.
