    Ditto on the 50 all in ones. you'll buy it, send it up in smoke and then have fork out more to do it properly.

    with all the other stuff to sort out like Mach, limits, home swithes and e stops you want drivers that just work.

    I have to be honest guys i disagree a bit as it really all depends on your application. Using separates for a small router build with small nema 17's can be complete over kill. I started out with a Chinese combined board (yes you do have to persevere) and it worked fine for my needs. Agreed that separates give you a greater flexibility and cheaper to replace in the long run. But one thing for sure with a combined, you learn a hell of a lot about drivers and steppers :-). I would say that if your needs are small use one but DO NOT expect the earth.
    If the nagging gets really bad......Get a bigger shed:naughty:
