I was seriously considering getting one, and the modding community seems to love them, but why do so many reviews on verizion wireless website hate it so much while the professional critics really like it a lot like?

Verizon released this device with a lot less RAM then all the other carrier versions have basically gimping the device. You will find that even in the Modding community that ROM's had to be modded to work properly on the Verizon TP. Basically no large page pools a large page pool would seriously kill the stability of the device. I think peoples irritation with Verizon gimping the device has prompted all the bad reviews.

So will the CDMA ROMS not work on it because of the lack of RAM?

Custom ROM's will work but some will leave you with less RAM depending on how the Page Pool is managed. Some of the ROM chefs have provided a Verizon version of their ROM adjusted to provide max RAM. If I had a Verizon TP I would try those ROM's first.
