Already downloaded it. Although I would have preferred to have the PMDG 737 and since I'm less than pleased with the flight dynamics, it's the most up to date 737NG model out, so I'm now using it, despite the poor FDE.

Sorry, who cares? Their 737 line is a disaster as far as flying ability. The only good aircraft out of Posky is the CRJ, A330/340 and the B747-400, others can't fly worth a damn. I'm praying the CRJ7 will be flyable.
Cantu has got you covered as far as freeware 727s are concerned. You can find a few repaints on AVSIM and the basemodels at www.eastern-va.com. His -100 is still just a public beta though, just like his L-1011.
Apart from the flying thing, I noticed that their 737s are total fuel guzzlers! I loaded up a wingletted AA 738 with 25,073.19 lbs (that's around 60% fuel and I was tankering because this was my first flight) to do the MIA-SJO "shuttle" route, cruised at Mach .79 and at FL380, jam packed (with 100% fuel, it would have been just 1,000 lbs overweight) and ended up with 4,547.26 lbs after engine shutdown at SJO. Is that normal? Shouldn't a 737NG be more economical and have more range than the classics? If I then want to fly EWR-SJO on a CO 73G in FS, I might as well load it up with full fuel and fly it at MTOW. I never thought they would be such fuel guzzlers in FS, or am I doing something wrong? BTW, I always write down how much fuel I filled the aircraft up and how much was left, so in other flights, I can calculate the required fuel for a flight better.
EDIT: I found this, but I don't really find it helpful at all:

I like it in all except you have to install the panel separately in to some temporary file and extract from there. I love landing into Cozumel in it. I think Posky should have 772 and A319 Oh and I had know problem on the 764 It is better than SGA nwaoc10.
Talk about rushing things to release. Don't they know they should have waited until flight testing is over to make a somewhat accurate (from a performance point of view) FDE? I got some of their 737s and performance is appaling, along with flying. If only I had broadband, I would have used the PMDG models, despite the lack of non-eyebrowed models and -900ER model.
