I have both an IMVE and MMR. Very difficult decision to choose between the two. If cash is primary issue, go with IMVE IMO and use the savings for some mods and maybe for a future purchase. MMR plays great and I love it, but holy smokes its pricey. Both machine play remarkably different but both are great pins. When I play IMVE I get pumped and pissed. Fast and difficult game, but it always keeps me coming back for more. When I play MMR I enjoy trying different ways to play the game, and I always finish with a laugh and smile on my face. If you can afford it, you won't be disappointed with both. Best of luck with your decision.
