I have a Drone DX and an EGO 8. I love them both. That being said the Drone holds value VERY WELL, the EGO 8 is dropping in price constantly especially with the new EGO coming out soon-ish.
I paid $285 for my EGO 8 with violent trigger and bob long ASA only a month ago. It has a LOT of use, but it is still great and just about every part can still be bought for it still.
