Do you dislike belt-drive turntables?

No not at all, there are many amazing belt-drive turntables and my current working reference is a Luxman PD-350 belt-drive turntable!

I really enjoy the simplicity of the Rega Planar machines and I love decks like the PL-514, SL-23 and KD-2055, just to name a few. What I don’t like is bad turntables, no matter how their platters are driven. This especially extends to overpriced underperformers, some of which are the most famous and names you’d be familiar with!
