Quoted from ASOA:

How about can we get what we pre ordered and was promised?

This is the best way to go...Keep it the same,Even if it takes signing a waiver promising not to complain if the disks start acting up.(Just me saying)

Quoted from spinal:

For those wishing for the original high-speed use of the design I get it. But, if the real reason is that it's not reliable at high speed, then something has to be changed and this is the closest thing possible. It's a compromise.
These ideas we are all giving are an attempt to offer alternate paths for JJP to take. Nothing is done at JJP if you look at the past and they can turn this around tomorrow.
The slow-moving, 3 disk alternative is a bit of a compromise allowing the original hardware to be used and can even improve upon the gameplay. IF the real reason that it can't be used is that it's not reliable at high speeds then here is a solution - done.

Just give people exactly what they want and not what they don't want...plain and simple.The spinning disks are being pulled out due to cost not for being unreliable..Let's just call it the "Wal-mart solution route"...

Quoted from Psw757:

I’m not buying the fact that they aren’t reliable. I have yet to hear or see any such failure. It’s BS.
Everything is reliable or unreliable depending on how you look at it. Everything wears and fails, cars, engines, brakes, airplanes, jet engines etc....
I would rather buy something that is innovative and different and if it needs to be repaired after a couple thousand games or replace the mech for a few hundred dollars, I’m good with that. It’s a 10k+ machine so if I have to put a few bucks into it every few years no biggie.

Very,Very,Well said...Your post really nailed it on the head.
