Matter of Taste. Further the Rev.1 Screen in the Lindys have no zoom/fill Option and the Tosh Screens used in the Lindy tend to make one or the other Problems. If you find a good working Rev.2, the Lindy is a very goopd cab, not a Chance i would part with mine. Big plus, the Panel has the correct hight on the Lindy and Noir , while the Panels on the Vewlix are a bit higher than your usual candy cab.

good Point.

see if it can Display 720p without boarders , i.e if it has a zoom/fill mode.


also, make sure to test 480 and 720p, i have seen several Lindys that could do one of them , but not the other, due to some defect. that is a comman Problem as it seems.

makre sure to check for stripes in the LCD Panel, not the Backlight ( most of the LCD cabs have some stripes in brightness, wich can be fixed with cleaning the backlight), but i have seen toshiba Screens that have visible ageing in the LCD Panel. You can see this when rows in the LCD have a milky less colorful tone.

The New Delta has that exact same rotation mechanism.

The Stealth is the same cabinet, but the trim is black instead of red. They might have planned a better screen for it too (I guess).

na, New Delta and New Delta Stealth are different cabinets.

they did 3 prototype Stealths, 2 blue onces and one red one. thats about it. i was offered These when RS decided to skip cabs, for 160,000yen/ea. Maybe i should have picked one up. :problem:

I have some Pictures of the actual Stealths somewhere stored on one of my drives. If i find them, i`ll upload them.

The top picture is just an artist's rendering (Steals :lol:). If you look at the video the cabinet there is exactly the same. However, the screen enclosure is slightly different. It's slanted at the top and bottom edges. So different screen more than likely.

EDIT: then again maybe the one in the video is just another revision of the New Delta, and not a Stealth.

Nice photos!
