    The ECS sounds like a viable alternative to PS4. If it’s like 30% cheaper it’s a no brainer.

    I’ll observe these FK510 and see if it’s the best bargain for the price.

    Definitely can't be 30% cheaper, at best just around 5-10% cheaper. It's still premium brand made in Europe.

    Then its really a toss up between the ECS and PS4 at such close pricing.

    Oh well, I heard the tread wear on this FK510 isn't fantastic. Gonna observe how well it wears. If it wears fast then maybe PS4 more worth it as that one has pretty good wear.

    In this comparison test, the FK510 wear is average middle ground.

    CSC5 was excellent! Probably better than F1A2/3.
