If it's about 15-16" deep, has screen control knobs on the underside just behind the
Sun logo, and has a small circular hole for the power LED on the side opposite of
the Sun logo then chances are it is a mono.  Some have an attached 13w3 cable and
others have a large base and a 13w3 socket instead.  The type with the attached 13w3
cable will have two missing coaxial "pins."  This might be the case as well with the
monos with the large bases and sockets, but I haven't looked at one in awhile.

I've used them with the onboard bwtwos of IPCs, cgthrees, and cgsixes and they work
