    Now tell him that the Core uses cheaper components on a single layer PCB and has yet to be tested while the TX-M has been around for 5+ years and has many reviews.

    Healthy reading comprehension should be a prerequisite to all discussions, especially discussions about how best to spend someone else's money.

    At first I wondered about the problem of a single sided board, but double sided have through plated holes and the tracks tend not to lift when replacing components, so I now see a virtue in double sided boards.

Any disparity like that will cause a huge difference in community. The bigger the site gets, usually the more caustic they become.

    I wonder if this is a generic observation, that small groups tend to be more harmonious than large.

    In the case of forums, the size of the group is a detriment as you end up having multiple "leaders" who are all vying for top credibility while in smaller groups you generally find very few "leaders" and mostly contemporaries all looking at/for a commonality instead of personal credibility.

    On the other hand, a large group that actually has proper leadership can be harmonious and production. You're just not normally going to find that in any large group/forum online as individual users are free to come and go as they please. They don't generally have anything tying them to the group at large besides a very basic mutual interest.

    I'm curious... at what point did everyone at TPU decide that HEC was a shit OEM? That part just floored me. I thought everyone knew they've been around FOREVER.

    I'd say that at least in the US, HEC has a bad reputation. Probably from the number of Zephyr units they sold way back in the day that generally died early in life and ran loud.

    Well... I'm done with TPU. That place is very toxic.
