Hi all, new here,
So a couple weeks ago I got my trusty PS2 back, and thought it was high time to get serious with ThirdStrike. So I thought, ‘Hey reviews seem to be good, let’s buy a Xarcade Solo’! What a mistake - I was completely stunned buy the very noticeable lag either on the PS2 or even if plugged straight to a PC by USB.
So I shipped it back and thought, fuckit I’ll build my own! This is my first stick ever obviously, and it’s still in the barebones ‘working’ state as opposed to the ‘pretty’ state. Still have to close the box, secure the PCB aso. But it works! Used a PS1 controller PCB (and eventually found out that even offcial PS1 PCBs do not all peform equally. Thefirst one I wired in couldn’t register some buttons if pressed at the same time, crazy)
So I have a decent stick now but I am now looking for a decent TV too. My PS2 is currently plugged to my dell monitor, which only have that one yellow composite input meaning horrible picure quality and no progressive scan mode.
I don’t want to spend too much for yet another ugly screen in the room (huge fullHD panels are not my thing…) but I want it to be completely lag-free. Problem is, tube TVs seem to be disappearing so fast…
My PS2 used to be plugged to a nice second-hand tube TV through scart, it looked fantastic… But I also have component cables, which I tried once or twice on both a 720p and 1080p TV. I had no chance to test out the potential lag on SF3 tho.
So my question is : do you know of a good, medium size Tube, LCD or Plasma TV, accepting component input, with pixel-perfect rendition of a PS2 signal, and no lag?
