I saw the Airsoft GI review of the ICS product, and I was rather surprised Tim took so much time to dump on the Ares version. I agree it was dumb to install the batteries in the mag, but Tim seemed to have more of an axe to grind with Ares. Just my impression.
I've been quite pleased with my Ares G36, but that's the only Ares product I have first hand experience with.
