OK I want to add a lcd monitor in a arcade cabinet. I was wondering
what is the largest 4:3 non widescreen lcd monitor? So far I can only
find 21", but didn't know if any company made larger. Please give a
link to any post about a larger than 21" lcd monitor.

Thanks

I assume that since you mentioned arcade that you are looking at using
it for gaming at TV like resolutions? Good luck with the search and
please let me know if you find anything large. I couldn't. AFAIK,
there are only a couple companies making all the LCD's in the world
(the rest rebranded) and they make what sells - widescreen.

Most older cabinets can still maximize your viewing pleasure with a
4:3 ratio screen since once you are limited strictly in terms of width
that all the height you can get is a viewing bonus for the 90% of
broadcasts on TV which are still 4:3. (Furniture is still mostly 4:3,
the root of the problem :)

They make what they think sells. Or they make what sells to the builders who
make what they think sells.

The market for 4:3 is certainly not the biggest. It is small. But it does
exist. I estimate 10% to maybe 15%. Most would be for office use. But
even that is changing over to widescreen in 16:10 because that's about right
for two vertical pages of text side by side in a document editor.

If there is a way to rotate the pixels in the video card the OP is using,
maybe a widescreen rotated 90 degrees could work?
