Quoted from bitpatrol:
There are mods and fixes, and the loud power supply, loud light and now 'washed out' lcd are fixes to me. I see I'll get roasted if I bring up anything negative so I'll keep my comments to myself, but I have a weird gut feeling about this.
nah, you are fine to think of them as needed fixes. Everyone has different standards for what they expect in a game.
I personally am more concerned with things like cabinet construction, play-field durability, decal quality, etc...
I honestly have never noticed the power supply fan at all, but then again since Stern switched to a similar design everyone says those are louder also but I dont notice them. I also have no issue with "washed out" LCD and dont think anyone has said that, but rather than they find it to have limited viewing angle. I honestly am not sure what they mean; is it at different height people that it looks weird to them? or from the side? To me the LCD look nice and good color saturation.
The topper gear can be heard but is a simple 5 minute tweak if you want it quieter.
If you are concerned with a loud PS and the viewing angle of the LCD, then more power to you to change them for what you like. Hundreds of people have played my game and nobody has mentioned either as an issue so from what I see the discussion seems to be isolated to the Pinside vision.
