Need help on monitors.
« on: July 14, 2017, 03:32:22 pm »
What are some cheap good lcd's to use? 19" to keep it close to original size. I'm doing a 60 in 1, but have yet to decide on a monitor.

What kinda cab you puttin it in? Upright or cocktail?

I had an lcd in a cocktail and the viewing angles sucked on 3-4 different monitors.

If upright I like Dell 2007fpt or 1907fpt's.

I found a bunch at a high school last summer that were upgrading to new.  I believe they were $20 a piece!

I plan on building an upright Midway cab to put it in. You wouldn't happen to have any spares would you?

If you are building an upright Midway cab just throw a CRT in it.

That's what I want, but they are so expensive for a new one. I think I have a good one i just have to test them, but probably need to change the caps on them.

There are no new ones, the new ones are 10+ year old unsold stock, and they might need to be recapped immediately or within a year.

With that said. I am running one LCD screen on my desk, and one in my living room. I am running 21 CRT monitors and zero LCDs in my games. I have never actually had a non-vector CRT fail on me once I actually got it all set up and running.
