Quoted from SuperPinball:
I am about to buy a standard for $8250 CAN but I think it is the old standard. Do you think its a smart move or should I spend a bit more to get a ECLE? Does the old standard have "problems" that I need to be aware of and does it have green armor and rails?
I would find out the games build date and how many plays are on it. If the game was made I believe September 2013 or after it has the newer 7.5v light boards. My ECLE is from October 2013 and it has the newer boards in it. If the game was made prior to September 2013 it will likely have the older 5v boards unless they have been replaced which if that's the case the game is perfectly find. A WOZ standard and ECLE made in say October 2013 using 7.5v light boards shares the exactly same electrical hardware.
I tried to find the post that contains a picture of the 7.5v boards so you can tell if a game has them or not but can't find it.
