Quoted from bhwolf:
I have yet to play AS, but honestly after what Heighway and in particular JJP have done, the Stern LCD looks like a modest revision over DMD. Hopefully, they've had some impact on Stern, and fortunately it's the gameplay that really matters.
When you play AS then you'll understand about the LCD. "Modest" its definitely not.
I have a WOZ, and the LCD is great but the Stern size is perfect and its MUCH more crisp on BM66 and AS, and MUCH more relevant to the gameplay.
Last time I checked I didn't see a Ritchie Star Wars pin with an LCD, light show and sound system?
I love what Heighway has done with the LCD too, have deposit paid since day one, so they get the #2 slot ahead of JJP for me
