I guess I must be one of the lucky few who received a VERY nice AFMr SE and is very very happy. I had one issue and is was resolved in three days. I received my new PIC in three days.
I am not, by any means, complacent or naeive. I manage over 500 pinball machines at the Museum of Pinball and know the ins-n-outs of old and new. I feel very fortunate to have purchased a AFMr SE with no issues. I think I have about 600 plays now (maybe low in respective to yours).
Am I one of the lucky ones or are disappointed buyers louder than than us who are happy?
I am hoping, for the hobby, that CGC continue to produce remakes of the quality expected by the buyers (and equal to the SE I purchased).
