Will this 27" CRT work or should I buy a LCD 27"?

I know that a lot of you want to be 100% authentic so you go with CRTs, but is this a good match
for a arcade cabinet?

27" Samsung CRT Television for sale - $10 hide this posting

27" Samsung CRT Television for sale. I still have the original remote that came with the television when purchased. The tevevision and remote are in good condition. Although if you are using service providers such as Comcast, Verizon, or Direct TV you will not get much use out of the remote. Feel free to contact me if you are interested.

how do you plan on getting your game signal into it?

does this CRT tv have a hookup you can use? gonna need VGA or YPbPr to use a scan convertor or a mame computer with it. composite or svideo are no bueno.

Without hesitation, I would take an s-video connection on a crt tv way before an lcd.

Find out the model for the tv and look it up to see if it has a s-video or component. if it does jump on it for a full size cabinet. i had one with a 27in tv just using s-video it was awesome
My Gf made me put a sig up. /whipped
