Haven't connected the monitor to see if the scratch will show.  Their website was not accepting paypal at the time, which makes one wonder why.   They won't own up to the scratched tupe and want to charge a 20% restocking fee if returned.  Keep in mind one would have to pay the shipping to return it also.

You should probably check it out because I have a lot of tube tv's that you can see and feel some pretty deep scratches off but when it's on you can't tell at all. I didn't use their website at all. All the communication and order was placed over the phone. They sent me a invoice with the total and gave me their paypal. They set my monitor up and they shipped it. No matter where you buy there will always be a restock fee and the buyer always pays for shipping. They don't want to waste their time for nothing.
I feel you pain. I really do but at least give it a shot. You will be impressed.

I am down to 3 24.8" Nieman monitors.  When they're gone, that's it.  Happ cannot order anymore Makvisions.  There are no more to buy.

So I take it that no more North American sellers carry the tubes that sync to 15Khz in stock?  Sad times indeed.

Any suppliers selling chassis that you can hook up to a TV tube?  Anyone gone this route?

Hi guys

I am desperately looking for a 25 inch CRT monitor for my mame machine! The one reviewed here is exactly what I am looking for but are those monitors still available? It's more and more difficult to get hands on one of those things nowadays!

I got a fresh new Makvison 25" crt 2 month ago but it failed badly and returned it back to Suzo Happ Europe. It was not possible to repair it and Makvision is no longersupplying CRT monitors anymore!!!!

Please help!!! :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead:

Just trying to find some more up to date info. I'm looking to replace at least 1 of the 2 monitors in my linked 25" Crusin' World cabinets.

I'm hoping to find something that will more or less just "bolt" in without too much modification or trouble. I know the WG 26" is an option but wanted to know what else, if anything was available. I know it's not going to be cheap but what are my cheaper options Vs. my more original looking / better picture quality options.

I also found these on Ebay, are they worth it? Are they compatible?

Thanks for all the great info on here and the help I've already received.

Just from looking at this guys feedback it seems to be a mixed bag with his 25" and 27" monitors. Some are saying that the tube actually isn't new or it simply doesn't work. If it were me I probably wouldn't order from this guy unless he was local. Have you checked Billabs? After shopping around they were the only company left I found to have brand new 25" curved CRT's.

I saw his feedback too and know there's always a chance with any electronics on Ebay. However Ebay is almost always in favor of the buyer when there is an issue with the purchase. I would only be out the shipping if there was something wrong with it. Don't really want to roll the dice but was looking at options.

I did check Billabs, and like almost everyone else they only have LCD listed. The 26" LCD might be my best option but I think it is overpriced for what it is.

Thanks

Guy on Ebay wants $220 for shipping which to me is way more than it should be. With that said it would be $860 for 2 25" CGA monitors or $1050 for 2 26" WG LCD Monitors. Neither option is as cheap as I would like but in your opinions is it worth the extra money for the LCD's or stick with the older CGA even though they are pretty much obsolete / not supported anymore?

I really wished I stocked up on monitors sooner.  It's a damn shame how they all pretty much vanished.  Hopefully, I can get away with cannibalizing a regular TV set for my DK project cabinet.

the "If I stockpile, I'll profit" idea is the problem.

I will never buy a CRT monitor used or new again.  I will not support the d-bags that have done this.  It will perhaps reduce the quality of my home machines, but when I think of what I enable when I buy CRTs, I really don't care.

I will not support extortionists, even if they fit within the purview of legal commerce.

In my experience, it is easier to make an LCD emulate an arcade CRT look & feel than it is a television, but I am by no means an expert on the matter.

I mean I'm not going to buy any arcade monitors anymore.  It's impossible to know for sure that I'm buying from someone that didn't hoard them intending to make an insane profit margin.

I mean, good for them, I hope they get rich and whatever else they want out of life, but I'm not going to encourage, enable, or pay for that behavior, myself.

In my opinion, if I buy an arcade monitor it's either going to be a verifiable new monitor for a fair price (less than $200 for a 19") or I'm not going to buy it.  I feel that if I buy an arcade monitor from someone with a stash of them, I'm just giving implicit approval to them and their "FU, I'm taking them all for profit" mentality, and I won't do it.  I don't agree with it.

I'm sorry you don't agree with me.  We're all different.

Well, it seemed like an out of place rant. Also, a knowledgable buyer is a protected one. FOREWARNED IS FORARMED....  get it?

Larry,

Are the monitors you are selling auto syncing? Will they fit into a Atari Gauntlet Dark Legacy Cabinet? If so, please PM me as I would like to buy one.

Hi Larry,

New forum member, not sure if I am allowed to PM yet.  I would be interested in talking to you about 1 on the Neiman monitors you have.  I sent you a more detailed PM.  Not sure if you got it or not.  Feel free to PM or respond here thanks

Used.
I've got 2 neiman trimodes on my junk pile. I hate those monitors(mainly because of the crappy video connectors).

Hey guys completely new to this, but I just bought an old time crisis machine (atomiswave) that has been converted to a Jamma Mame machine.  Problem is my CRT monitor is rolling and no picture is showing up.  Any help would be great, I am also based in the UK.

The monitor has the number 9A2988-1 Sanyo Mex 0405.  I also have the numbers A63AFW36X if that helps

Cheers

It would help to know where you live and what exactly you are looking for.  Centipede's I've seen have Electrohome G07's in them.  Do you need an entire monitor, chassis, frame and tube?  Or do you have a G07 in it now and it is non-functional?
