E-Motion Rollers (Smart Rollers or traditional resistance) ? Inside Ride

One feature I see that I like is that they connect to your bike power meter to maintain calibration.
Using the eMotion InsideRide 2nd Gen since 2013 and still in love with them - capable of safe, comfortable, road-feeling sessions up to 2hs - but mine is "traditional manual mag resistance adjust", not this smart-auto system now offered as an option.
Of course, not a pure track training tool - good for some intervals, 1min efforts, leg speed/balance work, etc - but "real-feeling" seated accelerations of semi stand-starting are not possible - for these, I have a custom-reinforced RoadMachine KurtKinect.
