For those of you who choose to disregard this advice, and to make your choice solely on the basis of price, I offer you the following quote from John Ruskin:
“It is unwise to pay too much, but it is worse to pay too little. When you pay too much, you lose a little money, that is all. When you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything, because the thing you bought is incapable of doing the thing it was bought to do. The common law of business balance prohibits paying a little and getting a lot. It can’t be done. If you are to deal with the lowest bidder, it is well to add something for the risk you run. And if you do that, you will have enough to pay for something better”
