Word of caution: You will not notice the problems with the ball machine. With the ball machine, it feels great. You'll need to subject yourself to very heavy hitting to see the drawbacks.
Do you like the MSV Co-Focus? Does it move a lot on the string-bed? I am considering that in the Steam 105s that I am getting next month, I want a string that is not shaped for that frame. I am used the shaped MSV Focus Soft 17, which I believe is a very new string.
The positive is that I turn the machine up quite a bit over what I usually see in matches for the practice. This frame for me is a just an experiment as I have demo'd and loved the Steam 99s and 105s, but they don't come out for over a month. This Donnay is such a cheap price that it is worth the try, and I like the customization kit....but it stinks that they don't have them available at TW right now.
