With the right card and drivers it's probably one of the best as far as I can see.

If I could find one in my neighborhood I would buy it- but I'll probably see a unicorn first.

Maybe someone who owns one can chime in with their reliability.

I'm using a d9400 in my cab and it's working great. Auto switching between resolutions is handy, and 800x600 desktop makes the front end sharp, and PC navigation easy. Scour  Lego, facebook marketplace, craigslist, and offer up. I found the one with very low hours for $200. There is a neotec 27" trisync in Illinois right now that has a slight picture issue listed for $50.  :o  I'm trying to resist buying it.

Do you live in IL? If so what area?

No, I'm in indiana.  The monitor is in bolingbrook, which is about 2 hours away. I would jump on it, except its being sold by an arcade and I assume if they haven't been able to repair it it's probably outside my skillset to repair.

I was just going to point you at my arcade party threads if you lived close by. You are probably 3 hours from me. After this pandemic ends I will be resuming my parties.

That is all. I don't want to derail this thread.

Hoosiers FTW! I'm in Indy.
Ajax should have been named Warlord, not Swan.

First off, Hoopz is right.

Well, I have driven past you to milwaukee to pick up a monitor, so that isn't  outside the realm of possibility. Binny's played a slight role also. Thank you!


Small world. I worked in indy for about 2 years on 86th st.

As far as I know the 9200 and 9400 are functionally the same. There were a lot of issues with the 9200 before they replaced it with the 9400.
