I am not looking for recommendations. That would not be the right thing
to do IMHO.

It is my onus to figure that out for myself. Most likely I will settle

I only wanted to know what your experiences were. I deliberately left
the question vague to promote discussion for the archives and for the
benefit of others looking to learn.
