Thanks - in fact I've just got off the phone from a call with Epilog's (actually CSI, Epilog's exclusive UK dealer) sales manager for my area, and have received a price list for their range. Booked an open day for next week, so yep, first step is to know your enemy! I've also been in touch with Trotec and Full Spectrum, and a few others, so I think I'm moving in the right direction
From what I've read, mainly on here but elsewhere too, is that Trotec, Full Spectrum and Epilog are the 'big three' in my price range (and beyond!). Would you say that's a fair reading of things?
