Quoted from Whysnow:

anyone saying to keep the remake is just plain wrong or defending the fact they own a remake.
A nice original is far better in all categories (plays better, easier to maintain and more robust, better lights and options for you to light it how you want, better pf printing, better flipper feel). It is not even a debate. sorry, not sorry.
MMr is great for what it is > brought down the price to something more people could then experience and a new classic. However, it was the first game out the door by CGC and they have made many refinements with the next 2 from what they learned. If they do another run of MMr with the new refinements and color big dots then this may be worth debate in the future.

The sky is falling, I agree with Whysnow. I'm an MMr owner. They are very nice and I'm happy to have it. A properly restored original is better in every way other then the dmd. The remakes play fine, but they do not feel like an original.

Quoted from WackyBrakke:

They play the same. The original might “feel” different because the parts are older and more worn. Personally I’d keep the remake with the all new parts. Do keep in mind a bigger screen is going to be available for the remake eventually, I think also with upgraded audio. That’ll only work in the remake.

They play similar but not the same. A restored original is not going to have many worn parts that play sloppy either. The difference is largely in the flipper feel and the fact that the games just feel more solid. Some people think the flipper feel is due to the emulation of the code which does make a little sense. Like I said though, both are very nice. We are splitting hairs really.

Quoted from chuckwurt:

Remake. Can’t get that amazing color display for an original.

You mean that thing that you only look at when it starts multiball, you destroy the castle, or save a princess? No question the CGC screens are cool, but like all displays, they are not looked at a lot.

Quoted from Gregc:

Whysnow this is your opinion " plain wrong" and mine is worth as much as your is. No need to argue but I am not wrong just a different opinion. Yours opinion matters little to me I make my own decisions. I am sure I have worked on more machines than you have and have owned more so take that for what it is worth. It does have value and I prefer the remake. I have owned several of the original also a remake. I have been a technician for over 34 years.

These are all just our opinions. I know several long term techs and a restorer that feel the opposite of you. They like the remakes, think they are nice, still prefer the original.

Quoted from chuckwurt:

Yep that’s the one!
It’s less expensive and new. How about that? Haha. I get why some would want an original, but give me new all day long.

Very fair points if you were looking to buy one. I chose a nib MMr for those exact reasons. But what would you do if you already have both setting there. In that case if the original is restored properly I'd go with it and sell the MMr.

Quoted from chuckwurt:

I’d honestly keep the one that played better. I’ve played some professionally restored games that play like hot garbage.

Agreed, sometimes that super heavy cc makes them play sluggish. Not all restores are created equal.

Quoted from TheRookie:

You have a MMLE? Nobrainer keep the MMLE.

The LE doesnt really add anything. That's coming from an MMrLE owner.
