Automatic Reversing module

Any preference for reversing loop modules?
I have a MRC 1414 Advance Prodigy 2 Squared. Have not run anything with it yet to know whether I like it or not. Most reviews have shown me it is favorable. I've got to finish connecting blocks, and redoing some track work, as I forgot to put in insulators ! See what happens when you see something shiney!
Oh well...live and learn.
So, If anyone has any input on the reversing loop modules, I'd appreciate it.

You will like the MRC unit.

For autoreversers, I have two Tam Valley Depot units and one Digitrax (or maybe one and two). Like wvgca says, get whatever is cheapest. They all work.

the more expensive ones have an electronic relay [faster], and adjustable trip current ... but i never found the need for these things ... the mrc cheapies do work okay ..
