Default Time to Pull the Trigger on A Brewpot

Sorry to even have to ask this. But I like to make the best of my hard earned bucks.
I've asked here and studied the options but still can't decide on a Brewpot. I've narrowed it down to these two.

1. 10 Gallon Megapot w/ball-valve

2. Eurotanks Brew Pot ( 50 L/13.2 gal) [07399]

They are both Great looking pieces and I'm sure either would do me well. But I need the opinions here to help me choose.

The Euro is larger, possibly too large to handle? And I would have to add a valve. But that would be no big deal with my next order. The Mega says that it has a 3 layer bottom with aluminum sandwiched, that seems like it would be good for heat evenness? =no scorching?

I would also consider the;

Eurotanks Brew Pot ( 30 L/7.9 gal) [07398]

It is a bit cheaper, but mostly smaller, easier to handle.

I hate to even ask. I am very impressed with Forrest and the reputation he has here. I wish he sold them both, I wouldn't feel so impolite asking for a comparison.

This will be my first brewpot and the most expensive item (so far) in my brewing equipment. So I can't say where this hobby will lead. But I can almost taste the rewards, before I even start. So I'm sure I will be in for a very long time.

Did you know that AHS is offering a $40 off coupon on the 30L Eurotank? Looks like Forrest might be willing to do the same for the larger sizes as well.

Yes, That is part of the reason for my indecision.

I would go with the 10 gallon pot, 7.9 gallons wouldn't even work for me. I always do 5.5 gallon batches and boil close to 8 gallons. I have 15 and 20 gallon pots and have never regretted it.
