E13 warrantied my old dropper for this new version, obviously its much better.  No complaints, install was a few minutes as they say.  I did not get the new remote but the old works just fine.  But as the article states I felt it was also stiff or took unnecessary energy to get it raised or lowered and noted this to my warranty advisor.  I did adjust my cable, this helped just not perfect like a KS lev I owned.  All in all its a great and I'm no longer crossing fingers my dropper will still be working when I get home.
