Since this thread was so lovingly raised form the dead, I figure I'll go ahead and make a point that has been bothering me...

Not true at all. With the exception of high-end mechs (cockers and mags) electros will not only be faster, but they will be quieter, more consistent, and probably more efficient. I have to laugh at the people that insist on turning their A-5s and 98Cs into 'sniper weapons', because they never seem to realize how loud they are. On any good electro, the hopper is the loudest part.
