    not familiar with any of the monitors you mention, but im generally allergic at anything behringer. got the older alesis M1 actives, and they are fine imo. also the yamaha hs50/hs80 are pretty sweet for their price.

    roadrunner, edirol Ua 25x sounds good and is very stable. ifyou want more in/outs go for the UA 101. these are USB, so if your prefer there's also firewire versions for both. (y)

    i've got a mate who's got the 6" behringers and there a steal for the price. The alesis are ok but i'd say the 6" behringers are more on par with alesis m1mk2 actives.

    Firewire edirols are good, i've got the FA101 at home really happy with it.
