Default Paranoid android vs aokp

So I've been doing some reading on these two roms and I have to say, I like the layout and app settings available in paranoid android. But aokp seems to have a bigger following . I just regrettably flashed jedi xx last night . Love his roms, but I hate wiping and setting everything up again. Can anyone tell me which of the 2 roms they like and why? Appreciate your input!

I went back to JediXX and couldn't be happier; considering problems that are still lurking in AOSP/AOKP - 4.2.x still too buggy for me. I'd wait till all the kinks are resolved.

Jedi-XX is definitely a great rom, MUCH faster than what i was using before (Jedi-x3 i think). But I am being heavily seduced by Paranoid android, aokp, and now a new one has caught my eye.... Rootbox (formerly jellybam).

Root box is good I tried it but I like Carbon, 4.2.2 and Voodoo sound.

They all have little kinks but.

I like theme chooser.
4.1.2 vs 4.2.2
No Samsung crap
Voodoo sound
Full AOSP

I've decided to give carbon a try and in all honesty I don't see any benefit of it vs jedi/tw roms. Camera has no low light option, and its rather important to me; call audio is just terrible, scratchy. Besides, i like all that Samsung "crap".
I guess it's the "Return of The Jedi" for me

Well I tried flashing them all. And to my dismay, there is a BIG problem. I can't download any apps until I clear the play store and download manager. Then I have to download them all manually. Which I would do, but then it doesn't tlet me re download my purchased apps for free... Deal breaker. Which sucks because I prefer their rom features. Don't care for the s pen or Samsung stuff

I love carbon,aokp and paranoid android for asthetics but the leck of solid bluetooth connectivity coupled with my preference for the default samsung keyborad has made me go back to jedi roms. If they manage to iron out the bluetooth issues ill flash those and never look back. but since i use bluetooth ALOT for calls and music, not so much

Different strokes. I like being on the latest version of Android and Wolfson audio is better than anything out there. I have no call issues. I have had 3 Nexus devices b4 this one. I prefer AOSP.

If I want a new theme I have a choice of hundreds and I don't have to flash it. Don't have to flash every little UI mod.

Nope... Have not had that issue on any of the ASOP Liquid, Root Box, CM, AOKP or Carbon.
