I would guess that serious PvP players have bought every ship that has a useful console, and every ship that seemed useful in PvP, and plenty of lockbox keys.
Conversely, a PvE player might buy a ship because it looked cool and never care/notice that it was 'bad'. *cough* Galaxy *cough*.
The Galaxy looks cool? I know a lot of people like it, but I have disliked it from the moment I first saw it on TV. I prefer the Ambassador by a long shot. The only time I thought the Galaxy was okay was when the saucer was gone. But that is just one opinion, and not a very important one.
