seeking thoughts on Somos 8100

We are considering switching one of our sla500's to DuPont Somos 8100... the flexible resin.
Any feedback would be appreciated on factors such as accuracy, aces and qc style buildability with the doctor blade (especially difficulty with trapped volumes and large flats), speed, downfacing surfaces, stability over time (humidity resistance), ease of support removal and cleanup, tolerance of rough handling (like being dropped), machining, drilling, etc.... Thanks,
