    If you don't want the breakout box then don't consider the GTXP - otherwise it's essentially the same as the Santa Cruz/Sonic Fury.

    I believe that most of the problems with the SbLive were fixed with the 5.1's as they fixed the broken ACPI header. Haven't actually tried one so I can't confirm (I own a Fortissimo II).
