Therefore, I wouldn't buy it unless it's significantly cheaper than equivalent models like Meade's ETX90 and Orion's 90mm Maksutov-Cassegrain.

As a newbie at that time, I found it quite hard to point at anything since it has rather long focal length, also you're limited to 0.965" eyepiece unless you also got the hybrid diagonal.
Get yourself a finderscope if you don't have one, and then you're going to have a lot of fun with it.
The only thing which I don't quite like is its focusing mechanism, you rotate the whole barrel and it's shaky by nature.
