Didn't realize this was an Ego thread. Never owned one. I see what everyone means about the suggestions and what not.... but isn't that what you do when asked? Don't you give a recommendation based on your experience? In some cases it's all you have to go on. I've tried quite a few devices, enough to say I've been there and done that. I would have to say when I recommend something, or advise to stay away, your best bet is to listen. You won't often find me recommending a particular device ( because there are sooo many and they are so similar). You will more likely find me warning of what not to get.
And I understand the whole subjectivity thing, I really do, but statistics don't lie. If something happens 9 out of 10 times, it's pretty safe to say it will happen again. Am I making sense? Not always the best at explaining.
