Iím at a point where Iím happy to just replace it, but was wondering if there were any pros or cons to consider between the previously mentioned models.

watching this post because I have the same issue with my ST4000.
It works fine for 1 hour or 2 then stops and the off course alarm goes off. Push stand by, then auto again it works for 10 seconds then stops. Hard to diagnose what the issue is, getting hot? The motor (drive unit) is fine.
