Negatives are that their resale is not all that great if you purchased new and their solenoids are not as robust (I just keep a spare).
The Ion if you dont care about the weight or warranty. Slightly more complex maintenance if you don't get an XE. It seems that even now you can still get parts and upgrades for them rather easily and full setups can be had for fairly cheap. Solenoids, though are plastic also, are tougher.
It comes down to you and what you want. I personally have owned both and have taken apart my fair share of them and dealt with all the problems that can come with them. I even built a hybrid one with Ion and Extcy parts. At the end of the day I stuck with the Extcy, and I have fully upgraded it and I have another on the build. I just prefer the lighter weight, the included upgrades, and the better board, banjo and hose format. I feel it is less prone to issues in my experience.
