I just bought at ebay auction a G520 of 2001 vintage. The 
cost was $200 +$45 shipping.  There are a fair number of 
them available. One vendor has thirty of them. 

 The monitor "has a slight blue tint" according to the 
seller but hopefully I can adjust it to be reasonably close 
to correct. I also bought a calibration target from Wolf 
Faust for the huge sum of $15.00 US postpaid :) 

Anyone have suggestions for finding a G520 manual?
