MVS buying help!
valgalder
Hello,

Looking forward to owning my first MVS cab and have some newbie questions, and would really appreciate some help from some of you experts!

I'm possibly looking at two different cabs, the first is a 2 Slot (US) MVS - the cabinet itself is actually in pretty nice condition with just has the typical wear and tear on the outside. The 2 issues i have with it is 1) the monitor (25" ). There is no burn-in, but it is slightly blurry and not as bright as I would like it to be or crisp. (I did mess around with the monitor controls) I have no idea how expensive these are to replace with better a one! 2nd issue is one of the joysticks sticks and isn't as responsive. I don't think this is a huge deal, because i've seen sites sell these parts for pretty reasonable prices.

This cabinet comes with Metal Slug 2, Metal Slug 5 (kit), SvC Chaos (kit), World Heros 2, Samurai Shodown III, and Fatal Fury Special. He is pretty firm on $375.

I'm just worried about the monitor replacement. Actually i'm also worried about it fitting through my apartment door! These are about 25"wide right? That is going to be CLOSE!

The other one I am going to be looking at is a MVS mini (13" ). I'm interested in this one because i KNOW it will fit through my door! Smile This one looks a bit more rough. I haven't seen it in person yet though. I have no idea what these are worth but it comes with Sengoku and Bust A Move. Asking price is $150 but again, the cab is a fixer.

any thoughts an recommendations would be extremely helpful!

Umm I am no expert but I am a stickler for picture quality meaning I simply can not play anything unless the picture is sharp. But option 1 does seem like a good buy considering the quality of games you are getting with it, in fact if you were to sell them all you probably wouldent be far off the price you paid for the cab and games eg MS5 aint a cheap MVS game by any means.

I reckon Priest could be the man to help you further considering he actually has his own arcade he will probably know about installing new monitors and prices ect.

Thanks. I was thinking the exact same thing. I could sell off SvC Chaos and Metal Slug 5 and recoup the majority of the money, if i wanted to. (although they are awesome games, so I probably wouldn't)
