Roland PD-125
I'll make it short: it's excellent hardware Roland. Detection of rims is exemplary.

One flaw: the "hotspot" in the center. The sensor detects the exact center of the skin, and there is a difference in sensitivity between the center and 1 cm below. This is annoying when playing nuances (for me at the games in shades I then veered a little further to avoid hitting the sensor).

Some say it simulates the fact that, on a real snare drum, striking the center sound is louder. But there is a bit much anyway.

Support for Roland suggests to play with the sensitivity of the module to erase differences. Why pay so much then? See for yourself.

It's really the only problem with this pad. Overall it is very good, but it has such a level of expectation for a high end of that mark, which I find hard to accept having such a problem hotspot.
