This morning Unico USA announced that its long-awaited 26" Phoenix Monitor Series Arcade CRT Replacement LCD Monitor is now officially on sale on its website. The new monitors are priced at $299.99.
Customers who order one of the new monitors now should receive them by mid-July. If the first batch of available monitors sells out, Unico plans to list another 300 units for sale. Orders of that batch should ship by the middle of August.
The company plans on sharing a video demo of the new 26" monitors in an original Mortal Kombat cabinet sometime tomorrow.
On a personal note, I really like the product name "Phoenix." It's an appropriate name for these monitors that bring classic arcade games with dead CRT monitors back to life. The Phoenix logo is super cool too. Yeah I know in an ideal world all classic arcade games would use their original CRTs, but with more and more monitors going down as time passes and a lack of new replacement CRTs and parts the new Unico monitors do look like an interesting replacement option.
