Haha, yeah, I realize that sounds pretty lame, and that's why I it was the first thing I put down - to take my comment as it is.
I'm not a big reviewer company like TomsHardware.com or a rich bastard, so I can't afford to buy all 10+ brushless systems, test them all out one by one in order to decide which is the best one. Unfortunately, the best I could do was read forums and see what others were saying.
That's the thing about this hobby (when you're completely new, as I am), there are no professional review sites doing proper benchmarks that can be verified on all the products there are out there, unlike how it is for Computer components (it's so easy to find out which CPU/gfx card is the best value, etc.). You have to resort to base your decisions on the *opinions* of other people, and their anecdotal experiences... Not the most accurate way... But better than guessing blind.
That is, IMO, much better than basing my purchase decision based on the manufacturer's site, how it looks and what they've written there. That was how I started out (having no better clue), but now at least I have 3+ months of reading forums under my belt lol (probably over 200 hours lol, I really have no money to afford to make a mistake). I've already ordered a MM5700 so I will have some experience with it in the future. Hopefully I've made the right decision, but I think so.
