Unfortunately, to do it right, reading is a mandatory assignment that you must do in order to make the right decision.
There are some pretty great suggestions above, but before you purchase a single thing, make sure you read, then reread, then research and then ask more questions and then read again before you make any decision. This will save you the most money right up front, ensuring that all the homework you have done prior to making that purchase, that the product that best fits your needs and requirements is purchased without the whole trial and error, or the “I wish I had known it couldn’t do this or didn’t come with that”. You don’t have anything now, so take all the extra time you need to make a better informed decision based on reading and suggestions or recommendations by community members and product reviews. You will be much more satisfied in the end if you do that boring and tedious homework now. Just my .02. Happy hunting!
