The Elite is a section devoted to devices I would recommend to others without hesitation.  They are not the only devices I’d recommend, and I don’t even own all of them myself, but if someone asks me what device to buy in a given category, chances are my answer will be one of these, as they are generally the best all-around device(s) in their category.  This list will be updated as time goes on.
