Quoted from Johno75:

Should I go LCD or LED for Dirty Harry??

Flip a coin and decide; same thing as people's opinion. I had a Dirty Harry with LCD and it was awesome, a massive improvement, but I'm an LCD guy.

Quoted from NicoVolta:

Is there an optimal setting or does each situation require different settings?

I have installed and used like 30 ColorLCD and never changed a brightness level or thought the brightness looked diff'rent from stock.

Quoted from jonesjb:

I definitely prefer the LED. Much brighter and looks clearer, with no washout.

Ha yeah...nothing washed out anywhere else on that machine

Quoted from Codeman00:

I only have one shot at this and have no idea if my title is better with LED or LCD.

Here's a tip, EVERY title is better with the LCD; more options. The LED is super duper bright...so yeah there's that.

Quoted from DakotaMike:

...and I've also heard that different games are better with one or the other. I don't think it's cut and dry that one is always better than the other.

It's literally the most pointless topic to ask aboot. It's completely 50/50 betwixed owners and there is no correct answer for any reason.
The good part is it's a ColorDMD and the best mod ever made, so there isn;t a wrong answer anyway.

Ah, so your question is a "right" vs "stage right" type thing?

Numbering them not a bad idea...but can you not see the orientation of the board components in the diagram?
Edit: sorry that last part is for orientation of the red stripe
