Default Is Pro Control a legacy controler now...???

I was just wondering as i have a HD Accel system with no control board at all.Is it worth looking into buying something like Pro Control or Control 24 .......,or just safe some money and get the basic version of Icon.I know Pro Control is still supported with PT7,does it work well?I see quite a few of these on ebay and to me sounds like people are getting rid of them.

to me, i'd save and get the d command. the dedicated eq and dynamics panels, touch sensitive controllers, X-Mon, etc makes it head and shoulders above the PC.

I am in a similar situation. i have been watching ProControls on eBay for some time now. When you consider going from mouse and keyboard to a PC, the advance in workflow I think would be significant. I am about to buy a PC and use it for a year and see if I will continue or go for d-Command, as that is when my Avid lease term will be up. The dynamic and eq section is amazing, but when you can get a PC for about $.30 on the dollar it really brings things into focus IMHO. But to answer the question about PC being legacy, that would be yes. Most likely support will only go so far in the future too.
