Default supercharger vs turbo

Im thinking about getting a 370Z NISMO and installing the new Stillen Supercharger kit. I was about to go with twin turbos but from what I have always heard, superchargers are more reliable and less expensive to operate. Unless I am totally wrong, I can get the supercharger kit and its pretuned and direct bolt on for around $6000 vs turbos installed $12000.

Sam's post is very informative and that is probably the biggest difference between supercharger and turbos.
