On the engines and deflector there isn't much difference, as +0.05 to turn rate or +1.2 to a skill is pretty insignificant. I don't have any of my reps up to 3 yet though, so not sure as to what the manufacturing cost difference is between 10 and 11 though. On shields however, that extra 100 points a facing, times 4 facings plus ship modifiers plus skill modifiers plus field generators plus tac team and emergency-to-shields, can all add up to a more noticeable difference. Still not huge, but noticable. And of course with set bonuses, everything has to match up anyways. I imagine a lot of ships are going to be running Omega 10/11 + Maco 12 in the near future.
If you're already packing a full Borg set, may as well stay with it. Engine is good, deflector is good, shield is meh but with the full set bonuses its probably better than any of the STF mk10 shields, and a heck of a lot cheaper.
