I messed up on the last post. I didn't crop the power files correctly to compare my average power.
Here are some pictures to compare:
Yeah, these are EERILY similar. As I'm posting this, I'm going back into WKO+ to make sure that they are, in fact, from different devices. The full files are different (Stages drops power data at under 30 rpm...when I crossed the line and ultra-soft pedaled around after the finish), but I wanted to show the interwebs just how close the Stages compares to a known high-standard power meter (honestly, I think of Powertap as a secondary Gold Standard, similar to SRM) at the expense of giving away my super-secret power numbers.
After cropping both files more carefully (one of them left out some of the starting lunge), the averages are: 303 and 303. I don't think there is anything more I need to write (except can we have an Android App to upgrade the firmware?)
