MP5 : G&G vs ICS

I've been wanting to get back into the hobby for a while now and a trips to some stores have sealed the deal for me.

I've decided on picking up an MP5a5 (...and it's counternames) but I cannot fully make a decision on which brand to go with. It's between the following :

G&G TGM A5 Retractable

There isn't much between them price wise, and I hear that G&G has a slight edge on ICS in terms of quality internals. I just wanted to throw it out here and get a few more opinions on which is the better choice.

I have 2 G&G MP5s I'm doing work on right now...
I've done work on ICS MP5s before as well.
The G&Gs are better quality overall but they still have a few things that aren't good about em. The Motors for one are not very good, the fuses suck and they don't use a fuse box to hold them in. They have heat shrink tubing over the fuses. Which sucks if you need to change the fuse. Also the trigger switches tend to stick together.
All in all though the ICS guns are junk in my opinion and I'd go with the G&G despite the issues.
All the issues on the G&G are fairly easy to remedy.

Just my 2 cents.
Gumbercules!?! I love That Guy!!!
