[Marc Wielage] "This is kind of like asking, "should I use an Ampex AG-300 or Pro Tools in 2014?""

Not really the same as vinyl vs. CD and tubes vs. transistors... does anything beat a Marshall valve amp? No. Can you get sustained fuzz feedback though your iPad? Not sure I want to try that.

For uprez, transcode and so on, can you beat a Teranex? No, in terms of price, efficiency and quality.

But most hardware for video, these days is totally outclassed by software solutions. The threshold occurred about 15 years ago in major markets, and 7-8 years ago in secondary markets.

No one that I know would be remotely interested in correcting anything on an 8:8:8 anymore, unlikely even with a later model 2K+. And you wold be judged insane to suggest a Dubner. The other issue is that most hardware solutions started dying out with the advent of HD -- some were built, but the die was already cast in favour of commodity PC-based processing.
