Wow, this is really the first game where I've seen such an overwhelming response to get an LED OCD.
The price is rather expensive, but in reality, the price difference between regular bulbs and 1 or 2 SMD non-ghosting may offset most of that.
I've gone with CoinTaker before but am using COMET recently just because they have some really neat varieties that CT doesn't carry. Breaking them open, the guts of the non-ghosting bulbs are the same, so it probably doesn't matter which company I go with. It sounds like either way (plus the gentlema who PM'd me) you still have very noticeable issues even after that.
Last night I put some non-ghosting bulbs in the center area (modes and villians) and saw some bizarre strobing effects that didn't seem natural to me from memory playing in the arcade. That's what prompted this thread.
So, I'm going to get an LED OCD, save a boatload and just get regular 1 SMD bulbs and call it a day.
Phoebe, to you especially, I have seen your work with LEDs and it is AMAZING. I'm almost positive it was your AFM I played at the Ohio Show 2 years ago (my first ever show) and made it a point to find you and tell you WOW. There is personal preference, but I also think there are times when you can make a game pop in such perfect balance that it should have been factory and everyone goes "that's the answer key right there".
