Quoted from Robl45:
I was thinking of doing color DMD for one or two of my machines. I honestly don't understand the debate. If the machine won't fit the LCD, you use LED. Otherwise, why on god's earth would you want to use something that is clearly inferior on the machine? Nostalgia is great, but the LCD animation is much better than looking at dots.
You can call it nostalgia I suppose, but brighter colors, better fit and lower cost are all great reasons to go LED. You don't have to HATE one and LOVE the other tho, they're both great. I have both. I love them both. It's just a matter of application. If you gotta have smoothing modes, you gotta go LCD. If you don't bother with that and just like dots, save a little cash and go LED. If you have a Stern or a backbox feature that LCD will require a mod or a compromise that you don't feel like making, go LED. It's all up to you. To me the LCD HIRES just looks too blobby when you get rid of dots so I end up running in a dots emulation mode anyways, and why bother in that case? So I get a true DMD and call it good.
