I wasn't all that impressed with ours when our shop had 'em for demo. I'll give the big S credit for innovation, but I had some issues with unpredictable/undesired lockout, weight, and cost. While the bike did respond like a hardtail, it responded like a hardtail that weight 6 pounds more than mine.
I also think some people have issues expecting it to perform like a more active FS bike when that clearly is not its intention.
