Joao;

Find the dealers near you and try each one; if you can't, find a local guy and see his/hers.

Buy a plane ticket to the companies before you invest.

This is a big purchase and travel there is a small price to pay to see and touch what you're buying first.

Good luck.

Also try to find what other ops near you have. Google a brand/model and your city or region you may find some contacts to call.

ask other operators which manufacturers provide good service. there are HUGE differences. and nothing

is more annoying than having your rig not operational because you are waiting for a part.

 

the players and their respective reputation is pretty well known. feel fee to PM me for more insight.
