Stock trigger lots of front/back play, your teammates really will be pissed if you don't upgrade it, you might "accidentally" fire at them...
ELECTRONIC HOPPER, get an evo or halo...both are good

Easy maintenance

CASE!!!

Barrel is evil
Loud
Battery guzzler (one a day)
Velocity woos
Review: My first paintball gun, awesomeness! I got it in the mail, and immediately fell in love. The beauty....the power....the....awesomeness! Well, after the initial adoration for an expensive (relatively) new $200 toy, I was still impressed.
Upon my first day using the gun I was paranoid that it wouldn't work....but it did! Not only could it fire an impressive 20bps (comparable to the most expensive paintball guns) but it....broke lots of balls? Although I continually blamed it on my hopper, the gun (still awesome in my opinion), I now blame the gun. It broke all non-100% new, not-freshly opened paint. The problem with that is that someone stole my squeegee. Essentially what I'm attempting to say is that it breaks ALOT of balls, a true pain.
The second complaint (I'll get to the good stuff in a bit) I had about the gun was that the barrel it comes with truly can't hit anything. If you're aiming for a bottle 40 feet away, it'll take you a good 3-4 aimed shots to hit. With the 3a barrel it was improved a bit in that it took about two shots.
The trigger it comes with truly is cheap plastic. Not only can you move it from its resting position forward nearly a centimeter, but you can move it side to side just as much! Buy a new trigger....$20 for a lifesaver.
The last two complaints are a more technical "thing", firstly being its battery consumption. It takes one 9v a day, else the next day you'll have "pull multiple times fire once" syndrome. That's a pain, plus the cheap wiring (Taiwan, better than China!) means you'll have to use twesers to ensure that you keep your battery plugged in. Lastly, velocity. To put it simply - it's low. Buy a spring kit.

Finally! We get to the good parts! The gun fires fast! If you get good, nice, non-breakable paint, you'll be happy. You can fire so many balls they'll think it's an army. Then again, they're $.03 each....so aim at groups ;)
Easy to repair! After you figure out how to get the bolt back in (DOH!) it's actually surprisingly simple to both fix, change, clean, oil, etc!
LCD Screen is awesome, though a pain if somebody manages to get a shot between your arms, it's awesome regardless. Shot counter, timer, everything you'd need in a gun....and that's not to mention full auto mode!
Conclusion: Cool gun, inexpensive for good product. I'm a harsh rater, so this probably deserves a 9, but....I'm mean ;)
BUY THIS, you won't regret it....but you should still buy a new trigger (www.ebay.com) and a hopper!
Au revoir!
