I like the RG320FM because of the flamed top. When I played it, I thought it was great. I also tried other Ibanez guitars including ones way out of my price range, and the 320 felt just as good as the pricey models. The 1570, as well as other higher end Ibanez models, sport a hefty price tag, which I can't even begin to afford. The 320 is very reasonably priced, which is another plus. I just love flamed tops and I don't want an RG thats just a plain color. So basically, I like the pricetag, the flamed top, and most importantly: the feel of the 320. I just can't look into any guitars over $500 right now and the 320 fits my taste and pricerange. The only thing I don't know is how the trem is because the arm wasn't in the floor model at guitar center so I couldnt try it. But, the RG320FM is looking like my next purchase at this point.
