Running parses I get a distinct increase of DPS using borg weaponry in STF vs standard weapons.

Of about .5%

Yes, they are better then normal weapons vs borg, but not by a ton. If you have them lying around and don't do anything but STF they are technically an upgrade, but the moment you step out of STF or Red Alert you are either shortchanging yourself or swapping out gear.

That said, quite often the cost of upgrading from a borg piece to a standard piece really isn't worth the cost. Turrets come to mind. The DPS change in swapping a borg turret for a standard turret really is trivial. I'd wager with the sad state of beams it becomes irrelevant as well, but I gave up on beams I couldn't tell you.
I once again match my character. Behold the power of PINK!
