    Quoted from nicoy3k:

    What is the price of replacing a node board from stern?

    Depends on the board. The common ones are $175-$200

    Great video. Nice overview on Spike. Looking forward to more videos. Really like that Wi-Fi updates are coming.

    A lot of common questions answered. Just wish there was some acknowledgment that the price of node boards needs to come way down to make them reasonable to have them on hand for maintenance/repair.

    Quoted from russdx:

    I don't think it should be at there cost?? If my tv breaks I don't send in the pcb for a new one for free? They expect me to buy a new one. But stern prices could be far cheaper the quantity they manufacture those boards in they must have a huge mark up on them. Sending in for repair is a good idea but it shouldn't be a free service but cheaper then buying a new board.

    When Spike was first announced it was sold with the idea that node boards would be cheap enough (around $50) for operators to have spares ready.

    Stern wants games to be “disposable” but collectors are going to want them to run for decades like the Bally/Williams games have. This is a long term issue that needs to be addressed.

    Quoted from JodyG:

    Stern probably does not want people to buy their boards and build their own machines from them...so if you make the sum of the whole system prohibitively expensive, you will exclude people from doing that.

    Lol. This would never happen. It’s almost impossible to get any game specific parts for Stern games.
