Should I upgrade my Trem? (Edge Zero II) If so, why?

I've seen a few discussions on the topic of what the best tremolo system is, but not much explanation as to why. Can I get an explanation as to why the lo-pro, original Edge, ZR, etc. are so good, and why the Edge Zero 2 is less desirable? I just bought a used Jiva10 (coming in the mail tomorrow) because it was a steal, and I'm looking at possibly upgrading the tremolo. Can someone explain the advantages/disadvantages of some of the other tremolo systems?

I was also thinking about getting a tremel-no, as I'm in a band that occasionally has to tune down to drop-D. From what I've been told, these won't work on an Edge Zero II. (mine doesn't appear to have the wheel-thingy) Can anyone confirm this? I don't want to do a more permanent mod, like a wood block, because the convenience of changing from floating to non-floating in a few seconds would be really nice.

There's nothing inherently wrong with the Edge Zero II. Many have their personal choices, but the build and ability to stay in tune with the EZII would benchmark well against the other highly regarded options.
