Just that the importation to Europe seems to be lacking.

MOTM all the way.  The parts are sturdy, you get thick front plates and
stuff bolted down so they're not going to bend or break or have some sort
of physical failure.  The electronics are solid too, super stable
oscilators.  Sounds great.  There are a few different types of filters out
and more on the way, so you can get a lot of different types of sound out
of it.  And customer support is friendly, helpful and responsive, since
it's Paul S, the guy who builds them.  You can get them kit or
preassembled.  the modules are a nice size, the knobs are big and easilly
accessible, so it's easy to tweak them.  It looks spiffy.  Price is
reasonable.  I dig my MOTM.


(not on MOTM's payroll... ;)
