Edge Pro: Awesome trem! One of the best Floyds ever made. Some people say this one is better then the OFR.

Edge Zero: Nice trem also, but some people complain that this trem is a bit "stiff" due to the ZPS.

Edge-III: Ibanez' version of the LFR. It's decent, but it tends to crap out on you after a while.

The only reason you'd get and edge III is to replace it with an edge pro.

Edge pro is equally as good as edge zero (once you remove the ZPS), they just have slightly different feels, due to thier shape and their ball bearing instead of the knife edge.

I own a Edge zero and they're prefect once you take out the ZPS (it's only there so it keeps some tuning once a string snaps, but once that happens the songs over then anyways)

I'd say try them both out for yourself and make a decision, but if you can't do that and ur looking at a edge zero you won't be disappointed.
Cause i recently bought an S470 and i've fallen in love with the trem on it.
but then you also see it on the $5000 J-customs, so they definatly do something right.

the ZPS is the stop bar at the back of the guitar for tuning stability purposes. Takes like 3 seconds to grab it and pull it out.

The Edge Zero is a very good trem, if there is one thing Ibanez can, then it's making good trems.

And if there is one thing they really can't do then it's putting decent pickups in their guitars

Should the pickups matter, though? won't the amp, pedal, and other external settings override what the pickups do?

I have very good experience with edge zero - it wont go out of tune either on vertical (bending) or horizontal (whammy) string movements.

I tried the other two trems, but just briefly, no oppinion, seems to me they're both ok

No you don't.
Some facts
Edge III is made with the least durable materials out of these 3.
Edge Zero is no longer made in japan (China, welcome), it requiers more wood from body to be removed due to ZPS, ZPS causes stiffer feeling
Edge Pro is still MIJ, does not require ball endings to be cut off.
Now opinions:
If I were you I`d get a guitar with Edge Pro, and do the locking studs mod.

You don't have an Edge Zero, you have a ZR. There's a big difference

I say Edge Zero. The ZPS is great. Don't listen to everyone telling you to immediately take it out. It's not a bad thing. It makes it so that the bridge doesn't move unless you touch the whammy bar. Regular trems will go flat with bending and vibrato which makes staying in tune for double stops. Palm muting can make the guitar go flat. Even holding the guitar in a different position can cause slight changes in tuning on floating trems. With the ZPS in, you get more sustain, it's tighter, and the tone it's brighter. Every once in a while, I decide to take the ZPS out for some flutter, but I put it back in 5 minutes later because flutter isn't worth dealing with the negatives without the ZPS. The ZPS also makes tuning extremely easy since changing one string doesn't affect the others.

And it doesn't matter where the trem is made. They don't use cheaper materials or cut any corners so it's fine.

If you get an guitar with the Edge Zero, it'll come with good pickups. If one a recent one with an Edge Pro, it won't come with good pickups.
