As with so many technological things these days (cameras, DVD players,
TVs) etc there's really too much choice. I usually decide how much
money to spend, drop any manufacturers or retailers who have a bad
rep, or get a really bad review in the magazines, and then just choose
the one that gives the most grunt for the money. But if you can get a
personal recommendation for anything (like a couple of the chaps have
on here) then thats absolutely the best advice to go with.

It was all so much simpler 15 years ago.
