Looking to buy this for my BSD. This is my first Color/DMD. I already have the speaker panel with the clear window. If you have already, did you go with LED or LCD for your BSD?

I went with LCD and I'm very happy with the results. I have a few LCD in other pins as well. I didn't care for the appearance of the LED, but it's very subjective. You won't go wrong with either.

I prefer the LED on this title for mine (I use both LCD/LED colorDMDs). Usually LCD is preferred when in doubt though or on newer machines (newer machines with movie scenes, etc. seem to look nice on LED though IMO).

I have the LED on mine. Love it.

Always is a personal preference.

Go with the one that starts with an L....I preferred the LCD, the LED, to me, is brighter but not as detailed and still has the pixelated look.

LCD lover here. Not as harsh and gives you the extra blending modes and pixel size modes as option not available to LED. I use the DotsXL for most of my Bally/Williams games.

Do you want the fat pixels or not?

Quoted from PinballManiac40:

Having said that, I have a couple of LED and 7 LCD displays and I do prefer the LCD. I have the LED ones because of fit issue in CV and wanted one to try in multiple games and eventually want to see if the LED fits into Slugfest, which the LCD will not.
