i don't like how the hotdog insert looks in that picture. Hopefully you won't see the 5 leds like that in real life. How is that big insert lit in the original game?
The more I think about this lighting, the more I'm leaning toward finding an original game. Which is a shame, because I was really looking forward getting a NIB SE. I like the look of the classic better, I think the large display isn't for me. Although a colour display is a must and so is a shaker. For the price difference I'd probably get the SE. But this big board scares me for repair, replacement, and isn't easily customizable (if at all). You might be able to change the led's but that be dealing with SMD soldering on your new game.
