    I don't think so. Opinions seem to be all over the place. Every manufacturer has their backers and detractors. At least thats been the case with the threads I've read.

    What makes you think this thread would be any different? The point is, if you search the forums for common questions like this, you'll get whatever input is available in these forums... biased or not.... without starting a new repetitive thread and then having to wait for everyone to say the same thing they said before. The OP was asking for opinions on what brand to buy, which is exactly what can be found by reading existing threads.
