In terms like picture quality you're going into the realms of personal preference or even a placebo effect. Paying 2x or 3x the price of the Zgemma is like buying a Rolls Royce to go to Tesco. A Ford will do the same job.
Ease of use depends on what software image you have installed. AFAIK most of us are using the openVIX image on the Zgemma.

I could not tell if the second DVB-T connection on the rear was a loop-through from the first or a separate input for a second tuner.

Maybe someone with better eyesight can tell.

probably loop through. Dual DVB-T only needs 1 aerial input

I've been using another Enigma 2 box for nearly 3 years now. When I upgrade to a 4K TV there's a good chance I'll go for the ZGemma too.

A single DVB T (Saorview) tuner should be enough. It's just a matter of running a fly cable from the box to the TV, and use the TV tuner to watch something if you're recording Saorview on the box.
