Title: Flat Screen TV
Post by: rurdy4me on April 16, 2002, 02:21:58 pm
Would a 20" flat screen TV look good for MAME? I found one with both S-Video and composites for $188. Will be using an ATI Radeon card. Thanks

I purchased a 20" flat tv for my cab, it is a Panasonic. I also purchased a ATI Radeon 8500 as well. The quality is outstanding! Only had it hooked for 30 minutes to test, and damn if I didnt get any screenshots. Oh well, one of these I might actually work on putting the cab together hehe. ( i keep saying that)!  Price was $299 for the tv, but for myself only, the price was perfect and the tv is perfect.http://www.prodcat.panasonic.com/shop/NewDesign/ModelTemplate.asp?ModelId=12713&show_all=false&product_exists=True&active=1&ModelNo=CT-20SX11&CategoryId=2707

other things to think about when getting a SVid TV is

if you can cut power to turn off and add power to turn on.  This is pretty hard to find on tvs.  Without it, you will be hitting a second button to turn it on.
