I've read the pros and cons of Led's and I just can't understand why someone would restore a playfield back to it's original glory only to put bulbs back in it to burn it up again.
Just 5 years of hot bulbs can deform playfield inserts. I'm sure we've all seen the results of bulbs on inserts. I feel if you want to protect your investment you should go with led's.
And they make an old machine look brand new! Just make sure you use frosted bulbs where visable because they are bright.
I install only half the led's in my backbox compared to bulbs. They are brighter so I use less to keep the back box from being to bright and hot. Less bulbs means less heat and less heat means less resistance and that means your electronics will last longer. Burnt GI connectors are also a thing of the past if you install LEd's.
They do cost more than bulbs but they burn out alot less. It's worth the investment to protect your Investment.
