    If you are looking for best value for money, go with the Shadow. Brilliant Brian Eddy layout and rules (without the cost of his Medieval Madness or Attack from Mars) , awesome and extremely difficult wizard mode. The popularity on the machine seems to be rising, and prices along with it.

    STTNG has better gameplay, more balanced scoring, and a wizard mode scoring that is dependent on your performance.

    What sort of gameplay do you like? We that's we can recommend some other tables to consider.

    Fast and flowing like WH20 or AFM?
    Stop and go like Funhouse or Addams Family?
    Do you like a Wizard Mode? Is it mandatory?
    Do you like modes that you have to play through?
    Do you want a central toy or target?
    What about multiballs? Me, I love them, so having a variety of multiballs modes with different jackpot targets is important. It's nice if the variety has a varying number of balls (instead of just 3).

    If you are looking at lighting, I'd recommend checking out Comet Pinball's 2835 smd's. They are extra bright, and Arthur who works there is very helpful and knowledgeable. If you are going to put purple in your machine, I recommend their purple passions some purples can appear washed out, but not these. The Purple Passion bulbs are a very deep purple.

    This may provide some ideas on lighting, customization and answer any questions you may have about repair.

    Quoted from Breaking_Dad:

    Hey kid...sometimes the cheapest way is not always the best way...especially in this hobby...you just spent almost 5k...spend another $200 for bulbs you want/like....you start monkeyn' around with those boards....it will cost you far more than those non-ghosting bulbs will...if your not careful..........Joey

    This. I'd second Breaking_Dad's comments.
