I'm interested in knowing about actual user experiences as well.
There have been some cases where a specific review of the product is really good, but then in other units of the same brand/model users are experiencing issues. So I guess, quality have not been consistent for some brand/models.
But I agree, based on what I have read about, seems it would be the Tacx Neo, however the most expensive as well.
Elite Direto seems to be really good in regards to power accuracy, but issue is that it has just been released, so not many actual user experiences.
I train on both my bike with a Stages left only on a Cycleops fluid, a full on powertap stationary bike by Cycleops, and on the road with the meter.
All three are VERY consistent day to day, within it's own "realm" or equipment setup. But.........the difference between the Cycleops stationary with powertap and the Stages on the Cycleops fluid is easily about 10%.
Yeah, the fan in the gym with the stationary is about 10x bigger, but still.
I'd just do another 2x 8min test for the zones indoors instead of trying to match 100% the power numbers.
The Elite Drivo and Direto have also been found to be very accurate. In the top end group of trainers the Direto is a steal for the price.
I haven't heard of, or experienced any reliability issues. There should be less issues since it has much fewer moving parts than something like the Kickr i.e. no belts to wear out.
