I press to get it early as a rule, unless something is happening that diverts my attention.... as for whether or not it affects the item you get, sometimes when i get duff stuff i feel it has, but I'm undecided overall

I like to let the box slow down on its own. I think you do have a higher chance of getting a better item if you wait.

I always press the A button to get my item quicker. There's really no difference than waiting, the only one is that you see the Star slip right past you into a banana peel.

I feel there should be a hidden system that increases chances on getting a good item if you don't spam, I feel it is deserved for not relying on items.

I always speed up the roulette and I don't think it affects the kind of item I will get. I believe the second you hit the item box, the computer already knows what it's going to give you. The roulette is just for show.

It would very depending on the situation, but the speed of the roulette won't make much difference with the results since you could still end up with a Fake Item Box when you don't want it.

For me it's mostly random. Just whatever I feel like doing at the time. But there definitely are times when I will try to stop it early. I can't think of any time where I will definitely wait for it to stop.

(Again this isn't saying that I never wait for it to stop, just that I can't think of any time where a situation comes up where I will definitely wait every time.)

If the back side indicator is saying that a red shell is coming, I will try to get whatever as quickly as possible.

If a POW block is about to POW which ever item I am about to get out of me then I will try to stop it early.

There are also circumstances in certain stages. Like for the first set of item boxes in DK Summit I will almost always stop it early. I have gotten many Thunderclouds in that first set of item boxes. However when I stop it early, I am still in the cannon so the Thundercloud disappears.

I remember several occasions where I didn't stop it early and got mad at myself when I received a Thundercloud and was already outside of the cannon.
