It was a difficult choice for me too for boards. I see the word “beta” and have questions. But then looking at the instructions for the wiring for the other boards and feeling like that would be a little more work since I wasn’t getting a wire harness.
The dual end stops was what convinced me to get the Archim 2. I was able to plug everything in and it just worked.
The only thing was deciphering where the end stops plugged in by looking at the schematics. And getting the LCD cables in correct. The page with all the boards on it and instructions took a lot of work for me to understanding because of all the different options. Part of it is that a lot of instructions how there are set up for using as a 3D printer and not a driving a router.
Some I have to tweak some of the default commands for CNC.js, but it processes the gcode great.
The Trinamic drivers also influenced my decision. Maybe none of things things add up to a big difference, but at least this was my thought process.
