Default Google play edition or not??

I can pick up both Google pay edition or normal retail edition with similar price. Which one is better to buy? I saw most customized ROMs are made for V500, can they also installed for Google edition? if not, does Google edition only have a very limited ROM available?

This really comes down to personal preference. However the roms for the V500 do not work on the V510 and vice versa. The hardware appears to be different enough that folks have been unable to make "universal" roms for both devices.

i bought the non gpe v500 g pad but if i had the option to do it i would pick the google one...Its much smoother and the ui is simplistick.with the lg roms you got too much unnecessery apps and visuals that requieres memory.
Now im using CM rom and i see much different in ui workspace.
GO FOR THE GOOGLE EDITION!

I started with V500. Sold it on swappa.com and bought a GPE. Much smoother, faster tablet.
