[Athen] What Brand/Model CCTV's Do You Use?

I really, really like the Ergo. The maker (Rehan) is a European company, but
the CCTVs are carried by Abledata:

I love the easy motion of the tray and the fact that the CCTV is adjustable
on its cart. The cart itself is easy to roll, and you can get oversize
wheels so that it moves easily across things like asphalt and tile.

It is the only CCTV that I have ever had users tell me that they actually
enjoyed using. Folks love the smooth tray movement, and I even had one
person say that it was the first CCTV she had used that did not make her
neck hurt.

It's a bit large for a home situation, but it's great for a campus.

Hope this helps!

Greetings All,

Sorry for the cross-posting...

We're in the market for a CCTV, and I've never purchased one
before. Anything in particular I should be looking at? What are the
best brands/models as far as durability, functionality, etc.? Is
there a particular brand/model that the California Community Colleges
recommend? Are there some that are better than others? What about
service? Which companies provide the best service?

From the research I've done so far, they all seem to have similar
feature sets and functionality. The CCTV will be in the Library
where students and community members will have access to it. My hope
is that I can get a product that has a rich feature set while being
easy and intuitive to use.

Thanks for your help!
