Hi. I'm getting an MMR soon, and I also asked for a chip to make the standard DMD colorized for $350. The alternative is getting a DMD from colordmd.com, one of which I already have for Champion Pub ($415 shipped). Which should I get?

The Color DMD from colordmd.com is only for use in the original MM and not MMR. Your MMR should already come with a color LCD display in it but in order to unlock the colored dots you need to order the kit from PPS.

You can't put a Color DMD in a MMr. Get the chip.

Ahhh, thank you for preventing me from potentially making a buying mistake.

It wouldn't have been that bad of a mistake as you could have put it in your Champion Pub

I love ColorDMD, but the color dots on the remakes are just on another level.

I already have one in my CP. I was worried I'd be so used to that one that I wouldn't like what's going to be in MMR.

No matter how often I see it, the MMR color chip always, always wows me. I love it.

Then you are in for a treat with the colored dots in MMR.

Congrats on your MMR purchase.

Thank you. On my Champion Pub, I don't have dots. I use the default filled in look. I tried the dots and didn't like them much. The MMR dots do look much better than the ColorDMD dots.

Where is a good place with the best price online to buy the Color Chip for MMR?

Correction edit: I got it for $400 from Cointaker. I remembered the price wrong due to other things I bought (shaker motor, mods, etc.)
