What is the best (GPS antenna/GPS software/LCD monitor/motherboard/power supply/Satellite Radio receiver/etc)?
Thanks Rafster for the idea!
Let’s face it, very few of us have a lot of money to spend. We pretty much all work hard for our money and we want to put it to good use. In this market, that’s the difference between spending X amount on a great quality product, or spending the same amount and getting a not so good product.
Many people come on here wanting to know what the best ________ is.
The simple fact of the matter is that there is not a single best ________ out there.
Lets have an example, shall we?!
I’ll use myself here. I’m on the mind set that you spend the money once, and be done with it. You spend more than some think you should, but you know you are getting a high quality product and that you will most likely not need to replace it due to shoddy craftsmanship. This works for me. For some people, they simply cannot work like that. They need the cheapest possible solution on the market, period.
While I may need the extra whatever it is I might need extra of, another individual could care less about that (lumens on a screen/satellite pickup ability/wattage from an amplifier/etc). We both have different needs as to what would be the ‘best’ for our situations.
There is not a single best for everyone. This is where you use that mushy thing between your ears and do that little thing we call Search!
