Rotary Drives, Raymarine VS Jefa

I'm looking for pro's, con's, experience, etc between these two units.

On the left is the Jefa Sprocket drive unit 200 Nm.
- $2375 price tag
- 200nm tourque
- no belts to wear out/seeming more robust clutch mechanism


On the right is the Raymarine Type 2 Rotary Drive
- $1650 price tag
- 34nm or torque
- larger fan base/support network

Thoughts on either unit, one vs the other? I don't believe I need the extra torque of the jefa unit, but it seems to me operating the unit at a lesser percentage of maximum output will increase the life. On the other hand I have heard no horror stories of the raymarine drive failing on a regular basis either.

I ended up with the ray drive. So far no problems, but I've only put 3000 ish miles on it so far.

In the end I was cash strapped at the time and while I really liked the torque of the Jefa, I just didn't really need it.
