I need to replace all the displays in the Bally RS I'm working on. Anybody have opinions on XPin vs Pinscore displays?
I believe that they are the same other than the name based on a licensing dispute. I have both and both are great.
If you want something really cool, look at the 7volution displays from Xpin. They convert the old 6 digit machines to 7 digit all handled by the displays.
That's really cool. Unfortunately, it looks like I don't have much choice because XPin appears to be sold out of everything and Big Daddy only carries the regular displays. Since they're essentially the same, I guess I'll order based on price and availability.
Email xpin,they have been very responsive and the lead times were very reasonable for the product i wanted that was out of stock.
For what its worth... I had issues with a XPin display. They responded very quickly and got me a replacement next day. Their customer service was really good when there was a problem. To be fair, I have not purchased anything from Pinscore, I cannot comment on their product.
I've put an xpin in a bride of pinbot and a laser ball and they look great and have had no issues. Have not used pinscore
they are similar and used to be one company. Both are just as reliable. I have had pinscore stuff and have Xpin stuff. Brett has excellent customer service.
If they're similar enough, I'm just going to go with Pinscore because PBL has them in stock, and I like supporting PBL.
I went with wolffpac tech kits. Not quite the same digits and you have to spend a few hours assembling them but for me thats fun and a good deal of savings. Boards were a great fit, all components seemed good and they look great.

When the two brands split they were the same. Xpin has continued to evolve and offer new products. I think for the standard 6 digit Bally displays they are still the same.
