    What panels are best value

    Given the lower feed in tariff I assume most are reverting to cheaper panels. How do we know which panels are best? Is there a list anywhere that rates PV panels. I have seen comments on this forum that says some panels are good and others are crap but it all seems to be a matter of opinion.
