    Look at this market fagit trying to flip a piece of shit cab

    http://www.neo-geo.com/forums/showth...-LCD-candy-cab

    Lulz seriously? He got the cab for $650, added a few buttons, a working encoder (why buy it if the video didn't work as advertised?) and wants us to pay for his 4 hours of driving. Fagit couldn't even wipe it down or take new pictures after putting in that $150 restoration effort. Sell this dirty ass shit elsewhere, ya big homo.

    I don't see "extra buttons" between the pictures. Looks like the same crap different day.

    Don't you love it when someone who wasted your time (when you were a noob) does some shit like this.

    Excellent form on making a warroom thread, madman.

    God damn. That's what you get for $650 (looking at the original price) these days? I paid $450 for my Astro City like 2 years ago. Oh, but I had to clean it and replace the buttons and ball tops and drive like 90 minutes each way to pick it up oh and I had to buy some ratcheting tie downs and a tarp and I stopped for a burger on the way there, so I'll sell it for $975.

    The better question is why flip it - that actually isn't much of a flip - if you aren't going to make profit on it (...and you aren't as you already overpaid) then why go to this trouble. Let's say encoder and buttons are $50 - that's $100 for what, 4 hours of driving, gas (another $20), and another hour of labor. 5 hours of time for $80? No way dood.

    He claims he added missing buttons and video encoder but his sales picture must be out dated and looks like the photo from the warehouse he got it from. I see no missing buttons in the first place. I mean the least he could do is use an actual photo of the unit from the time he posted the sale or something. I left my 2cent enough but i just saw this and thought i would give my after thoughts. You can see my first response on that thread ofc. Looks fishy to say the least

    Also that derp china cab what looks to be in pretty bad condition does not look 800$ (shurg)

    Yeah, unless that cab has some hidden magical powers that I don't know about, no way is it worth $650, much less $800. I'd pay $200 for it if I was in a really good mood.

    Well, there's a company called 巨龙电子 that works in electronics, mainly smart boards. It could be the same company that makes these shitty candy cabs. But with only the pinyin and not the Chinese characters I can't say for sure, because julong could be different things. dianzi is definitely 电子 though.

    That Chinese quality, though. That text on the cabinet is the model, not the manufacturer. Google "Dong Man You Xi". It's another one of their cabs. I don't remember what they're called, but they're making Vewlix knock-offs, tabletop machines with MVS branding, knockoffs of all sorts of expensive cabinets, like deluxe driving cabs from Sega, and so on.

    They're usually sold along with a Pandora's Box, or a PC running Taito Type X2 games. I think some of them came with some sort of Raspberry Pi JAMMA solution, but I've never seen one in person. Quality as expected. These cabs can't take the same amount of abuse as the brand stuff.

    Probably another case of buyers remorse when overpaying. "This is what I paid, at least I can get my money back".

    Nope.

    This is a genius idea by Madman. A thread here can easily be linked to a shit sales thread if a mod sees fit. Well done.

    Really even the original $650 is over priced IMO. Earlier in chat someone mentioned on alibaba you can get them new from China for less.

    It's nice to see my genius being appreciated around here. Rather than being reported to the mods.

    $650 for the cab $39 state tax $50 video converter board.

    Do you tools really think I'm flipping a cab to make $60? It's sad to see where this site has gone truthfully.
