LCD screens and MAME - lack of valuable searches...
01/28/15 05:26 AM


hello all - and this is my first post. Please note that I have searched for this information over the past few weeks and have found loads of information, but most of it seems to be prior to 2013. I just want to get more updated info- and be able to understand specifically with more specific questions. so bare with me and here goes:
1) I want to build a cab, and use an lcd screen - not interested in making it look like the orig (scanlines, etc.). I was hoping for a 27", but I believe that nothing over a 21" will have the same 3:4 ratio. is that still true?
2) I have read posts that using a 27" or a 34" or larger will create a bigger game display - but you will have black lines on the sides. So does that mean that a 21" at 3:4 display will have the exact same game display as a 27" - but you will have to cover the sides?
3) I've read that some lcd's have lag - what should I be looking for to minimize this? brands or other factors?
4) Lastly, what is the best LCD that you recommend and why?

I appreciate all knowledge and opinions. This will be my first build and I'm pretty handy with the wood working - but it's the components and electronics that I'm learning.
Also, I don't mean to ask a newb question, but again, everything that comes up in google is years old.

Thanks for your time.
