Take the direct drive, one less potential problem.

If I were you I would go with Technics since it is heavier that a Sony (12 kg versus 7) and have slightly better specs.

It's interesting that a turntable named Sony PSLX300USB is on sale on ebay now and yes, it's USB. It looks differently from the PS-LX 300N that you are considering HOWEVER to have a USB relative is a bad sign.
