TT Purchase Question

Got a couple local deals at my disposal.  There is a used Pro-Ject 1Xpression Carbon Classic Turntable; Mahogany; Ortofon 2M available for about the same price as a VPI Cliftwood open box at my LD.

Any thoughts or experience with these 2 units?  I have an Older RPM-1 that I was thinking about selling and then upgrading to one of the two above.
My vote is for the VPI. I think it has more robust upgrade options and technical support and I like the company and products. I currently own a VPI Classic turntable now.

I suspect others are going to recommend a lot of different turntables but sometimes less options will get you sitting in front of your speakers sooner. Perhaps this afternoon?
