I'll knock Dectol. I hate the stuff. YMMV of course. It works fine but leaves black mess anywhere it touches and has lousy tray life. I'm still printing with the same bottle of working strength LPD I mixed in October. Try that with Dectol. Of course it may not matter to you. It's less the cost and more having to mix a new batch of working strength developer every session and a new gallon of powder stock much more often.
Of course many people like it and that's fine with me. That's why they make different developers.
