Quoted from TheLaw:
I don't even know what "quality" means or how you rate it...are you referring to the weight of the machine?
My JJP machine was littered with problems from design, mechs, clearcoat, and assembly. That's all I can say aboot them became that's what I have encountered personally.
But yeah man...that DI of mine is like, heavy as shit. Strong like bull!
I don't know either....
Clearly there's a nearly complete PC build in JJP games, as opposed to the near Raspberry Pi like hardware in Stern games. Definitely profit there for Stern, but as well as adding weight to the head, I have no idea why they'd have that extra computing power.
Seems like JJP has better sound quality/speaker system as well.
But yes, with all the issues I've had, how much can I praise a more complex, more structurally sound game when price is higher, as well as the fear of cost to damage ratio being higher.
I'm somewhat floating towards a Pro, as a result of feeling like a $5500 investment, and it being a potential shitbox, if far less mentally taxing, than a potential $9500 shitbox.
