The price for the Sawtooth is more than fair and maybe even a bit too low for it's specs. The CRT however is only worth about 20-25 IMO.

Thanks for the comment zen.state - I adjusted the CRT price (honestly wasn't sure what to price it at). I've had a hard time finding a home for this G4 the last few years so I'm pricing to sell and open to all offers!

Thanks and sold it offline.
17" CRT is still available though I doubt there is any interest at all in CRTs anymore?

I don't think CRTs have entered the retro sphere yet. I still have a nice big Apple CRT on a tripod in the basement, and may hook it up again some day--but it takes up a crapload of desk real estate.

I gave away all my G4 towers and CRT monitors to charity,
They are in a seniors centre somewhere in Ontario now.

I wish it was a little easier to match up people with stuff they need. I saw an older Dell 17" LCD screen sitting in front of someone's house with a sign saying--WORKS, FREE, TAKE ME--and there are no takers!

Yep, It's hard to give stuff away...
But, Luckily I managed to get rid of an upgraded Sawtooth, An upgraded Blue and White,
Two G3 desktops, An upgraded LC475, A upgraded Blackbird Laptop and an upgraded SE30 all to the same place.

I hope they enjoy them as much as I did.

I just kept my Mac Mini's and all my iOS devices.

I used to have a pair of those - loved the Apple CRT and remember they were huge. This 17" CRT colours and clarity still look great after sitting unused for years and yet I can't seem to even give it away and unfortunately lack the space or need to use it.
