Review: I have only tested this product. The ego 07 is a big step from the 06 ego. Yes, people do say its practically the same. From what i have tested there are some big differences.
The 07 ego is very quiet and egos are not known for being quiet. My etek is very loud compared the 07 ego. There is even less kick in the 07 ego. It is a tiny bit lighter than the 06 models. It comes stock with a great barrel. The stock board is very good, personally when i get my 07 ego im staying stock. When i chronoed the ego it was 271, 284, 286, 292, 279 pretty good speed. The trigger frame is very nice. On semi I was able to shoot at least 15 bps easily. The guy at the store didnt let me play with it but i was content just testing it. (Sorry this review is a little biased, but when i actually get my 07 ego I will be editing this into a more solid review)

EDIT December 26
Finally after saving up for the ego7 Santa managed to help me get one. I had already tested this gun in the past so nothing really surprised me. Last time when i only tested the gun I never really played with the board settings or anything. After receiving the ego7 I spent time playing with the board. I was pretty amazed on how user friendly it was. The settings were very good. It included most tournament setttings, ramping, semi, uncapped rapping ETC (i have not tried all modes). I aired it up and just for fun set it on uncapped ramping. My halo could not keep up with the ego's uncapped ramping. This guns speed is soo good im going to have to save up for a pulse loader now. Im still impressed with the ego even after testing it.
Conclusion: The 07 ego is a hardcore kickass gun, it is one of the best guns out there. Planet Eclipse did an excellent job on making the ego even better. I recommend this gun to all players (lol this gun will boost up a noobs confidence in a flash). It may be pricy but the performance you get out of it is worth it.

Hey nice review, so I have an ETek right now (Intend on keeping for 2 years maybe.) And in what aspects would you say this marker is better over the ETek in besides Speed, Noise and Weight? Like is the Eye Logic alot better at all? Is the maintainence still the same as the other Egos? Thanks in advance.

The Rammer spring needs to be broken in. My friend had the same thing. He bought a titanuim rammer kit and it took a few weeks to break it in and the noise became considerably quieter.
