Thanks for the added detail. Many of us can appreciate the level of thought, detail and engineering here. However, you have completely avoided my real question. See below again in bold. All of the advantages you have pointed out are not at all translating into the two things that really matter - performance or longevity.

Most folks have no problem spending more for more performance but personally what I look for is the ratio - the old bang for the buck point of view.
