An integrator commented in this thread:
the peice that I am still not clear on are the reasoning end users are giving for making the switch. In the other thread mentioned in some of these comments integrator were saying end users were "blown away".
I've seen this various times over the years. An end user will be excited about a system or product that specialists in the field will find ordinary or even inferior.
The most common explanation is that the end user is comparing it to their own limited experience and often limited needs. Imagine a field you are not a specialist in, like microwaves. As long as the microwave is better than your previous one (which might be 10 years old), you might be really happy even if one's new microwave is actually inferior to other new microwaves, simply because of your frame of reference.
