I'll have to check the model number but it wasn't one of the Smart TV bullshit ones, just a basic LCD and yep, playback quality is top notch, in fact it's on par with the original Samsung panel I had in there in V1.0!
Fully decased and you need to be careful with it when you've done it but once it's sitting in the cab under toughened glass you'll be sweet. Just watch out as I ripped out the ground wire when decasing the front of it but easily fixed

Just make sure your primary graphics card to run the playfield is a good one, mine is an nVidia GTX670, you really don't want to skimp here as some of the newer tables are very demanding. Oh and get v9.90 of Visual Pin, it's been updated to DX9 and some of the tables are fuck off good. Medieval Madness for instance, wow! Look for the tables made for the latest version (which may be 9.20 in some cases). Monster Bash PC Killer edition is also amazing but you do need lots of PC power for it. It didn't kill my PC
