Just wondering what you guys would want. I would love to have the original but others say the new LED version is really nice? If you have an original LMK if ya wanna sell.

You get the fancy speaker panel on the LED model and it comes with LEDs.

Only reason to possibly desire an original is that the early runs came with fangs on the snake... which broke over time anyways

The LED model also has the new 1/2 wood 1/2 metal upper cabinet with wrap-around t molding. It looks sharp.

I like my original, and chose it after led was available. I was able to led it my way which I would have done (for more money) anyway. I also prefer the all black speaker panel.

My fangs never broke I guess I have been lucky so far.

I prefer the Original Met Pro . Like the look of the backbox better.I install led's my way anyway .

I own a LED version and just played an incandescent version. It was nice but didn't have that pop that LEDs lend to it. It was too dark. Get either but upgrade to LEDs if it's the non-LED version. IMO it's the only way to go.

I just got a led pro, but honestly, I would have gotten an old version, I like the old back box as it matches a majority of the games.........in a few years though, I will be saying the opposite. Either way I will be changing the led colors anyway.

Anyone have an original FS before I buy I NIB LED

The LED's will be gone soon. Don't wait too long.

If I were buying Id go original with the old style back box, same with IronMan verse the VE.

Either is a fine choice though, same game.......

PM'd you.

You cant go wrong. Excellent pin.

I got a new LED Pro... I think one of the reasons for the backbox redesign was to tip the DMD back and eliminate glare off the glass. I don't think a lot needs changing color-wise in the new Pro, maybe getting a few colored LED's to tone down where the white ones glare out from under the sling plastics.

I like the old style back box better. The LED's are nicely done in the LED version.

I like the old style backbox and I would redo to LED's anyway.IMG_20150620_105109379.jpg

Have had all three versions LE, PRO and LED PRO and would go with the LED PRO all the way looks sick and has the neat new redesigned backglass; makes a huge different almost no glare with the DMD angled and you get the speaker panel decal and it comes fully led'd and has the retooled drop targets also.
Just my two cents

I thought I wanted the old stlye to "match" the rest and then I realized that I don't give a crap about matching when the new one is an improvement for all the reasons mentioned.

Matching goes out the window anyway unless you're never going to purchase another new Stern. Which I promptly did, ST premium.
