    I'd say PDI, especially since you specifically mentioned that glare is an issue in your room. In my opinion, it's one of the best mods you can possibly do to a game. I had a bunch of people over the other day, and many of them were commenting on how good all the games looked with the non-glare glass.

    I don't really see the point of Pinstadium lighting. It seems like complete overkill to me. I'm generally able to make my playfields look just fine with careful LED selection. If it's still too dark, the addition of two or three cheap spotlights works like a charm.

    I'm genuinely surprised by how popular Pinstadium lighting is. I've played games with it installed, and it does indeed light up the playfield nicely. I just don't think it's necessary. Plus, it's annoying that you have to remove it every time you want to lift the playfield.

    Quoted from estrader:

    Once you put pinstadiums on a game it not only allows you to see the whole playfield but the lighting effects add something extra to the game. If the only thing there is to complain about is the removal to lift the playfield it seems like a great product.

    Actually, that's not my only complaint. I also think it's way overpriced. Of course, a lot of people feel that way about PDI glass, so I guess to each their own.
