Opinions on monitors for the 6.0

Like the title says what are some opinions on monitors the the 6.0? Like which one do you use and why sort of thing.
Capabilities?
Expandability?
Ease of use?

I am looking on getting one after Christmas is over with and would just like to know sorta what I'm dealing with.

I glanced around for a topic like this and didn't see any... sorry if this is a repost.

Edge Insight CS or CTS. I use the CS and can monitor eight parameters at once plus set alarms for all of them. I have an egt probe for it and you can also expand the system for other things such as fuel pressure etc. It's a great system for the money IMO! Plugs right into the OBD2 port.

Check out the Scan Gauge II...can't be beat for $160, just not as flashy as the CTS.

Check the tread in my sig.

I've covered the more popular options, the Edge Insight CS works very well for my application.

I love my insight cts it has been a great asset to my truck! Expandability has been great. I run all my obdII guages that I need to monitor eot, ect, ficm, boost, then expanded with the egt and fuel pressure gauges. Very clear, easy to read!

I think 8 or 9 on the digital screen or 5 if you go with the analog screen.
