Came upon a Roland JX8P locally for a little under $300 (not sure if its sold yet) and got really excited, but I'm wary of its programability without the PG800??
I'd get the 3P if there was a choice, plus you could probably get a 106 for $450 and it's worth holding out for that
the 8P is cool tho, it does the main riff sound on Aeroplane's remix of Friendly Fires and i THINK the Final Countdown riff was this too?
i just wouldn't pay $300 for it, personally, although there's probably a software programmer you can get to make it more flexible. you can't get one for the JX3P because it was a very early form of MIDI and is unable to receive MIDI CCs.
but yeah 106 is the ultimate for classic analogue sound with very little learning curve
