Would have bought an L&L based on my perceptions of better build and technology, but price difference was simply too high as I needed a glass kiln as well (Paragon Pearl 22).
For future reference, glass can be fired in digital pottery kilns just fine. There is a myth among glass artists that you have to have elements in the kiln lid, or that you can't use shelves in the kiln. I have several customers who fire glass in their pottery kilns, including one who does large 22" wide slumped bowls and platters. She can fire 5 at a time in her L&L E28T-3.
