I can't decide between Rocket Giotto Evoluzione V2, Quick Mill Vetrano 2B and Alex Izzo Duetto III.
I know Rocket is not double boiler like other two models.
Which one should I go with?????
Thanks

Let's start with how you've narrowed down the field to those three.  Tell us about it, please.  Maybe you can extend the process to limit it to just one.  

The Vetrano and Duetto are really very similar.  As Chris carries both, perhaps you can get some good information and advice from one of their excellent advisers.  

The Rocket is -- as you say -- an HX.  

In general you get the same quality for less money or better quality and more features with an HX than with a DB.  But some people prefer the little bit of extra consistency which comes with DBPIDs.  Bearing in mind that no matter what anyone else thinks, it's your ideas which are important... What are your thoughts on HX vs DB?  

Given that you're this far down the selection process, I imagine that you've got a pretty good idea about how both systems work.  But if you have any questions at all, please go ahead and ask them before firing up your credit card.
