What Kind Of Customers Are Using This?
Incredible Technologies uses this display in their Industrial-Grade Arcade Machines ensuring a high-quality standard. You can consider this an upgrade to the Wells Gardner 27" size, fitting in the same chassis.
Why is a CRT so much more expensive than standard LCD or computer monitor?
A: We This CRT is a real, authentic arcade monitor. That means it is capable of displaying arcade games in their original, arcade authentic form: scan lines, resolution, etc. Although LCD or computer monitor has higher resolution, they are not capable of displaying classic arcade games in their native form, thereby decreasing authenticity. Scanlines are "faked" with an LCD, but come natural on a CRT.
Is this better than an LCD?
A: This monitor should be purchased if you want an authentic arcade experience. Although an LCD is much cheaper and has "better" resolution graphics, an LCD was not designed for old-school arcade games in mind. This monitor was made exclusively for use in arcade games. While an LCD is a much better-priced option, you should purchase this display if authenticity is the most important thing for you.
How is your pricing so competitive?
A: We will be using this same monitor in the X-Arcade Machine, and our volume provides a very competitive price. If you can find this monitor SHIPPED to you for less, let us know and we will guarantee to beat the price. Email news at xgaming.com
What is a Monitor Bezel?
A: A bezel is the decorative black plastic material which covers the areas outside of the monitor glass to give a clean appearance to any cabinet. This bezel can be purchased and used with any 25-29"" flat screen monitor. If you are replacing the monitor "only" and you already had a flat-screen monitor/bezel, you won't need to include the bezel. If this is a new project, or you are switching from standard to flat screen, you will need the bezel.
What Machines can this be used to replaced?
A: You can use this to replace any 25-29" commercial arcade machine which supports 38Khz refresh. This is a great option for a MAME Arcade Machine Cabinet due to one of the top resolutions of any arcade monitor. Please note you will need to purchase the flat-screen bezel for enclosing the monitor.
Should I use this display for the Mame Machine I'm building?
A: If your intent is to play classic arcade games, this is the best option available. Wells Gardner has discontinued their CRT and this was 2nd-best selling CRT available.
Should I get a TRI-MODE or this SVGA?
We receive many questions regarding which monitor would be best for a MAME/Computer installation. While a Tri-Mode can support lower resolutions/refresh rates, it uses a Analog Video Input, so you need to physically and manually change the mode on the monitor itself. This makes it an unlikely option for a standard MAME or using with your computer user. This Tri-Mode monitor is ideally suited for replacement of an arcade machine which will be set to one of the Three Modes PERMANENTLY. We do not currently carry any Tri-Mode.
Should I use an HDTV or Plasma/LCD?
A: We are now carrying a 26"" Wells LCD
Do I need any special transformer or adapter to power it?
A: Includes a VGA Switching Cable for Arcade Machine use and standard power cable for Computer/Game Console use.
Do I need any special adapter for my computer?
A: No. The display plugs directly into your computer's video card. Note: The connection is VGA, not DVI.
Do I need to use scanlines with Weiya M2929?
A: No. The display has natural scanlines; no software scanlines are necessary, providing authentic and realistic visuals.
Do I have to do anything extra to run Windows™ or OSX™ on the M2929?
A: No. The M2929 can run any os just like a standard computer monitor.
Can the M2929 display 32bit color?
A: Yes. The M2929 can handle 256-32bit color.
Can I play games or watch DVD movies on my M2929?
A: Of course, this is merely an industrial grade computer monitor.
What is the warranty and how does it work?
A: If your monitor breaks within 12 months, we either ship replacement parts or a replacement. International customers are responsible for all shipping charges both ways.
What are shipping charges?
A: Add the item to cart to see shipping price.
