The Super Neo 29
Candy was SNK's last iteration of Candy Cabs. There were a lot of
changes from the Neo 29. All the sharp corners have given way to
smooth contours. In my opinion, it is the most aesthetically pleasing
of the SNK Candies. Brightly colored shapes with smooth gradients and
corners make up the artwork and color scheme. The marquee is large
with a unique shape and speakers directly below it.
Unfortunately, in this case good looks mean a sacrifice in function.
For one, the bezel and its frame are screwed directly onto the
cabinet, whereas in most candies, the bezel swings up. Also monitor
rotation is possible, but is quite a chore. You must remove the bezel

The Super Neo 29's construction is made up of a combination of plastic

amazingly bright and clear picture. A remote adjustment board is

of the control panel.
This is a great cabinet, it looks and runs great, just suffers from a
couple inconveniences. I endorse it, but I would not recommended it if
you are going to be rotating the monitor often.
