For Paragon, these are my favorite LEDs. The light has a wonderful quality and they look just like bulbs. The light comes from putting electricity through a special LED filament that heats up and converts the energy to light.

PS: Yes, I’m having a bit of fun. It’s obviously a picture of a light bulb. LEDs done right are great in modern games. But I’ve never liked them in classic games. I’ve seen a lot of conversions, and I’ve done a lot of them. But my classic games always end up with bulbs back in them. They just look best.

The ONLY argument I’ve agreed with for LEDs in classic games is on location where the game is on all day. And that’s because of the heat buildup impacting the game. Inserts may cup, backglasses may damage from the heat. But in a home environment it just doesn’t make sense to make the game look so bad.

All just my opinion.
