Cheap Floyds are never a good idea. Made of cheap metal, and while they probably work okay for a while they soon wear out with use. Go with the string-thru.

Never liked stock Fender humbuckers. Single coils is what they know and excel at. Not to say I don't like humbuckers in Strats, because I do - a lot. I only argue that you'd be better off with...

He's not asking about the brands though... He's comparing an Ltd ST-203 (straight Strat-copy) to MIM Fenders.

An LTD-200 Series will arguably compare to higher end Squier-range. 300-400 euros new, last time I looked.

If you care about your guitar, you should check those for wear and tighten every time you pick it up anyway... But yeah, they loosen quite a lot in the beginning with new leather ends.

Got a Fender Standard Strat last year. Really nice guitar. The ceramic pickups are quite nice, and distorts much nicer than the typical alnico-mag Strat pickups tend to do.

But as for the choice...

I had it on a chair. I almost never use it anymore, I only keep it because the used value is negligible from where I stand and because it's nice to have spare amps to lend for jamming with friends.

Have the VT30, and while I haven't tried the VT40 I wouldn't recommend it for metal if it's anything like the old one. Too much bass and it gets very muddy at higher gain-levels. Great clean and...
