combination of universal motor and reduction gears... not the best sounding grinder but hey if the grounds are "amazeballs" and "flufftastic" we've got ourselves a winner

If you look at some of the other sette threads you'll hear varying opinions and speculations. All in all, you've already stated it well

Now keep in mind the Sette is conical and the vario is flat burr which might affect your decision. The sette is priced quite well; if you buy a refurbish vario you might have enough money left over to start saving for the sette.
Finally, I see you're in Tucson. We had a good size turn out in Tucson recently so keep your eyes peeled for more Arizona meetup: decent amount of gear to try out at these events including varios. Or if you find yourself in Phoenix I'd be happy to let you try out my Vario-W.
