I got the following release the other day and thought you arcade guys would be interested.
"It's the last call for a piece of history at Dream Arcades: The oldest arcade technology, the CRT monitor, is almost out of stock -- and gone forever!
"We have only about thirty Vision 29 arcades, which come with the CRT monitor, in stock. After that, there will be no more big-screen CRT
arcades," says, Michael Ware, Founder & "Head Geek" of Dream Arcades. "By the end of the year, we'll be forced to discontinue using CRT
monitors all together, even in our smaller cocktail systems."
This is due to the fact that in recent years nearly every major CRT manufacturer has gone out of business or moved to newer technologies,
meaning the days of CRT monitor are numbered.
Besides the old-school feel, there are other benefits of CRT technology over the newer monitors. "For retro gaming the advantages
of CRT over LCD are numerous," Ware says. "Refresh rate, supported resolutions, and pixel blur are just the big ones. LCD monitors just
weren't made for retro gaming."
To own a piece of history, get your Dream Arcade Vision 29 before they're sold out -- forever."
