Has anyone tried the Jacuzzi Espree?

The uberbabe and I are having our bathroom remodeled and think that a whirlpool tub would be a nice addition.

At the Jacuzzi website is a plethora of options, but none cheaper than $2000.

At Lowes, however, they sell a Jacuzzi whirlpool tub called the Espree for only $700. It is apparently only sold at Lowes.

I can’t find a review online of the Espree line of tubs, so I turn it over to the Dopers.

What am I missing if I buy the Espree instead of, say, the Nova?

Is it a signifcantly worse tub? Is it missing parts that the other one has that I would have to buy separately?
