My other markers are an Angel G7 and Tippmann A5. This is my first Ego.

I've used the Ego for a couple of scenario events. I'm averaging 12 bps while laning.
I was having some difficulty at first with the stock and MF barrels. So I switched over to the Deadly Wind with Freak inserts. Accuracy has greatly improved with a good ball to barrel match.
After 3 cases, I'm averaging about 1200 psi on 600 rounds with my 45ci tank. Break in is not complete yet.
I've had one horizontal line go out on the OLED after a hard hit on the ground. The display is still legible.
Minimal kick since there's still some weight with the rammer cycling. It's significantly less noticeable than my Angel G7.
The sound signature of the Ego 09 with the Deadly Wind barrel is much less noticeable than my A5 with an APEX barrel.
Maintenance is extremely easy. Planet Eclipse has really thought this through in their design. Their tech videos and manual are top notch and make working on the Ego simple and quick.
The training mode is nice, and gives me a chance to practice without shooting paint. The built-in sound on the board is neat - especially for power on and power off.
After a couple scenario events, I'm very impressed with my Ego 09. I'm happy with the speed, accuracy, easy of use, reliability, and aesthetics. It's really nice to have speedball firepower and woodsball accuracy. I especially recommend this marker for the cross-over or tournament-style player.
