MET pro led is my first NIB also. I ordered it a couple weeks ago and it supposed to arrive this week I've ben told. Its the only NIB pin thats come along that I HAD TO HAVE! It is truly awesome, I LOVE Metallicas music (black album or older) and the art package is just insanely cool. The code is soo well written that the game just flows perfect and it just rocks! I love lots of other Sterns also but this one I just had to own, especially with the rumors that this will be its last year of production so once that happens I foresee prices only going up on HUO units. The PRO LED version I've been told has also been redesigned to handle an all LED light matrix vs the incandescant version wasnt. Maybe someone else can elaborate on the upgraded LED light setup vs the incandescant version? This new version also has the metal backbox, angled speaker panel with round speakers and the graphic on the speaker panel vs just black. Anyway some minor differences but they are BOTH awesome and cant go wrong with EITHER!!

BTW the MET that I play at NYNY casino in Las Vegas is the standard PRO that has been converted to LED's and its BEAUTIFUL and plays amazing. The regular version handles the LED's just fine. I do not notice any ghosting or flickering anywhere soooo who knows what is different about the new one. Ive just been told its "different" by my distributor to handle an all LED setup

Quoted from frankmac:

What is the average going rate for NIB Met Pro LED.

Stern has a minimum price now that distributors cannot go below anymore. I believe it is $4995. So the only thing distributors can "entice" you with is free shipping and being the local dealer so they can service it or take care of it easier if something goes wrong with it. From what I understand they are trying to give the "little guy" distributors a chance to move their inventory. Thats what I was told at least.

Quoted from frankmac:

Hopefully 5K with a shaker motor works.

When I called around about 3 weeks ago the minimum pricing had just gone into effect. I called Trent @ Tilt, Melissa @ Cointaker, JJ @ game Exchange and my local guy here in Vegas @ Planet Nine. They all gave the same quote and said that is the lowest and best they are able to do now, and they are also not allowed to offer free "goodies" anymore to persuade you to use one or the other. The only thing they are all allowed to do (from what I've been told) is offer free shipping. I used my local guy because I like supporting local business and his shop is 5 minutes away from my house so he comes and fixes all my games when I cant figure them out hahah. So basically if you have a local "guy" use him/her!!
