Stranger89 - not thebland, but i have the T2c and a T3. As Mike said, the T2c is the best of both worlds, touchscreen and hard buttons. Build quality is awesome and is just an all-around great product.
As far as setting up an RTI system, you'll need:
1.) a Processor - technically don't need one, but all of the advanced features, including RF communication, RS-232, sensors, etc require one. And overall, the processor/remote combo is where the strength of the RTI system is. You'll need either the RP1 or RP6. Which one depends on your system. If you just want RF communication but will then control everything via IR you can get away with the RP1. If you'll want to add RS232 or voltage/video sensing, then you'll need the RP6. If you choose the RP6, then you'll also need RTI's rm-433, which is what receives the RF signals transmitted to the RP6. The RP1 is both an RF receiver and processor in one unit.
2.) a Remote - I'd coose the T2c currently. RTI is supposed to be coming out with T2cs in the 1st quarter. This might be a better solution for you as it has alot of the benefits of the T2c but with a smaller touchscreen and I think it's a couple hundred bucks cheaper.
3.) Accessories - depends which processor you go with, but with either one, you'll likely need some IR emitters. If you go with the RP6 for RS232 control, you'll also need RTI's serial communication cable for each device you control via RS232.
That's about it. Of course you'll also need the thing programmed. You can work that out with your dealer. Again programming isn't that difficult, but there are some nuances.
RTI isn't an inexpensive proposition, but you get the high-end look and feel, advanced control and, for me at least, it's rock-solid controlling everything I need controlled.
