Honest discussion here not looking for trolling (though I'm sure it will come).
For me the whole Stern LE thing with limited availability has turned me off. I was somewhat off Stern already (full disclosure) on the price hikes they put into effect to my eye without improving quality (and to my eye under cover of JJP intro price to market with an upscale product).
This whole scarcity thing however rubs me completely the wrong way. I was going to look for a Star Trek LE, but I really don't want to play in this sandbox. Instead I would like to send a message and not give Stern my business and buy exclusively JJP. Of course I do want to buy machines I like so the decision is a tough one.
