IMO, nobody comes close to Stern. Stern is all about having fast flowing games. I'm personally happy that JP Pro doesn't have a moving T-Rex head. It slows the game down and creates problems. If you like all the gimmicks and toys, then go with JJP and spend the money. Additionally, if people keep complaining it'll eventually drive up the prices, by Stern trying to please everyone. Stern definitely had the chance to raise prices significantly with all the new companies coming out with their higher prices trying to fill the pins with bullshit that breaks down. Careful what you wish for.
Doesn't matter what you put in the machines, Stern consistently makes my favorite games.
