Discovery PDHQ 8"Dobsonian

Has anyone had experience with the Discovery PDHQ 8" Dobsonian? 
I keep reading good things about it but wonder if the 8" SkyWatcher dob # S11700 or the Orion SkyQuest XT8 # 10280 
would be as good as the Discovery model?

Wondering if anyone has used either of the Orion Lithium Dynamos, and what they think of it?
ALSO, HAS ANYONE USED THE CELESTRON INSPIRE 100AZ 100MM F/6.6 ALT-AZ REFRACTOR? IM WONDERING IF THIS MIGHT BE A GOOD CHOICE FOR MY 10-YR-OLD GRANDSON FOR A FIRST TELESCOPE, BEING IT APPEARS EASY TO SET UP AND USE.
