Hey crew, I'm tired of the constant "help me pick a light board" threads. So I thought I would start a collaborative article on the topic. That way we can point people to the collaborative article then discuss details here once they have educated themselves a bit. It would also be fairly easy to just add new things to a collaborative article as time goes buy. I want to break this article up into Four categories: Computer based, Sub $3,000, $3,000-$10,000, and $10,000+. What I've learned over the years is that there are WIDE opinions on low end consoles. In the past threads like this have quickly turned into an "I hate ____ " bashing session. So in this thread NO DEBATE please! Also no discussions or horror tales. I just want some organized data please. Try not to suggest old consoles that are no longer in production. Yes there are a variety of purposes to consoles in this price range, just pick whatever comes to mind. Thanks! Questions: 1) My favorite sub $3,000 consoles are____ . (No more than two please, if you only have one, just write one) 2) I would advise people to not buy the following sub $3,000 console_____. (Only one please).
