My money goes to Hypertherm for anything plasma related. I've had a PM 1000 G3 for about 5 years and it has never failed to make the cut every time I pulled the trigger or hit start on my plasma table. I'll never go to any other vendor, ever.

as much as I love my Miller welders...and.... believe they are the best in the world...
my money for the best plasma cutter still goes to Hypertherm....
my Hypertherm Powermax 1000.... has been flawless for the last several years...
would buy another in an instant....(was a perfect match for my PlasmaCam CNC)
search old threads... on the subject, see what others say...
