i hate trades. they take up more room in my bag, they're harder to read sitting on the bus and lying in bed and they cost more. i only buy SCE, anthologies and 3-in-1 trades.
I echo this sentiment. When trades have more content to offset the higher price, I've been willing to buy them despite their being unwieldy, but I won't buy a trade that's really just a MMPB with larger pages and swathes of white space.

Isn't that all of them save "Treason"?
That seems to be the case for Trek (so far), but looking around the bookstore you can find a lot more of these faux-TPBs, or MMPBs that they screw with the page height in order to be able to sell it for more. Too mercenary for me.
