He has some really bad leaks in his home but wants one for survival (Hunting and security), primary for a crap hitting the fan scenario.
Budget would be $1200-1500.
Edge had a good one, the ATN OTS HD 384. There was a steal on that OTS HD 384 awhile ago. Those units have a TON of options.
Other than that there is a few Pulsar units that sometimes come in that range. The LD19 and HD19a which are also 384 units.
These will have visibly better performance than comparable price 320 units.
