Get the panel if you have the budget. It makes operating the switcher so much easier. It works just as well with the 2M/E switcher if you ever upgrade.
The JLCooper Proton comes in at about 1/2 the price, but it's very new and I have heard no feedback either way, or had a chance to check it out in person.
The GVG100 panel conversion is cheaper as well. It is great for straight switching, but there are a lot of compromises that come with it. The other functions always leave me scratching my head for a few minutes to get where I need to be. Can make you a deal on one if you want to go that route...
