ive watched them on youtube and they look nice and sturdy. im guessing it uses MAME. i havent READ anything bad about them at all. It actually looks like a very good deal to me. Personally i would prefer the upright version, but thats just me. Its probably something like this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ey4ys5iQtDQ

i don't want the upright version because of where I plan on placing the machine. I designed and built my mancave, which is actually my third floor. so the stairwell comes up into the room from below with oak railings on either side coming about 10 feet into the room. I wanted to have the machine right along the railing and an upright would block too much of the natural light...IMO

i can understand how space can be a issue and you would want a certain location for it. i want a mancave so bad i cant stand it. this is something that i have been considering if and when finances get better: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qFQiphsi5uc
i think this would be a little more manageable than a full upright. my issue with the cocktail is mostly that im afraid it would hurt my back after a short time. This table top and the cocktail are at least manageble pricewise, ive been playing with the thought of actually building one from stratch, but i dont know if it would look good.

heres another company, they are more like kits and are cheaper (because theres no computer that comes with it) this COULD be better if you wanted to customize things your way. http://www.mameroom.com/Products_kits.asp
