Hello there, first poster but long-time reader here!

I am looking to buy a Star Trek: The Next Generation pinball as my first machine. Recently I came across a working machine with LED lighting and Colour DMD for around 2400EUR (this is in Europe, equivalent to about 2700USD). According to the vendor, the game was used in either an arcade or a bar.

As a newbie pinhead, I would really appreciate the community's opinion, based on the enclosed images of varying quality that the vendor sent me. He was also nice enough to record 3 videos which I cannot upload directly here, so via WeTransfer: https://we.tl/t-5jgxt1CjD7

Does anything look off or hopelessly broken with the machine? Is this 2700USD a decent price for this kind of machine in this condition? Is there anything else in particular that I should clarify with the vendor upfront, even before going to see the machine, located about 300km away?

Thank you very much in advance!

Any ST:TNG for sub-$3000, buy it. Unless it's partially melted from being in a fire.

Buy it now. Hurry before it's gone. It's worth 1.5 times that.

Definitely a good deal. Some weird rust on the metal parts though. I wonder if it got wet at one point.

Great deal, great machine!

Learning curve on repairs could be steep, but definitely worth it.

Warp speed dude! Get that damn thing!

+1 is a really good deal from an American point of view. Not sure what they are worth in your country.
