I've been very intrigued by them as well. I heard about them when they first came out and did some research on them, only hearing good things from all. Of course it's a $325 gun, so the finish isn't going to be flawless, but come on, it's shoots one inch groups @ 100yds! A lot of gun for the money. I don't think you'll go wrong.
In general, it is hard to go wrong with a Savage. They make very accurate and reliable rifles. No direct experience with the Edge. I do have a Savage 110 in .243 that has been my main deer rifle for almost 30 years.
