Food Dehydrators Opinions on Models?

I have been looking at dehydrators for some time now. I know that the Nescos are great for most purposes, but I am not a huge fan of the round shape. I am considering a square Nesco or a couple of other options and wondered if anyone has experience with any of them. I know that Excalibur is the "gold standard" but I really do not have the money and their economy model for around $100 is very very small.

L'equp: square but similar concept as Necso. Great warranty but mixed Amazon reviews.

Or a couple of models similar to Excalibur (TSM and Dehydra). Seem to be a knock off design made in China. Good reviews though.

Thanks for any first-hand experience! I am serious about my kitchen gear and want to love what I choose.
