    Which SWG???

    Is there a comparison chart out there anywhere? A quick search seems to turn up a lot of manufacturers that don't get much mention here (CircuPool, CompuPool, Resilience, Nexa, Intermatic, SGS, etc.) It would be nice to seem something that listed all the manufacturers, models, initial cost...
