I believe this thread is a little bit confused.... I try to explain. A mesh dish is never (NEVER!) better than a solid one. A solid dish is always the best choice. Mesh dishes were built in the past (not sure now) due to better response to high speed winds, but they suffer of important signal loss compared to solid dishes. In C band the loss is limited and it become a good solution, in Ku band the loss is around 20-30% (more with many poor dishes). Also, the advantages in high speed wind conditions are not so real, and this is the reason because many manufacturers dropped mesh dishes from many years. So, if you need only C band you can choose a good mesh dish, if you want Ku band a good solid one is needed. Also, offset dishes are not better than prime focus. This is true only for little size (until 1.5m, maybe 1.8m). If you have the chance, install a good 3m solid dish for C and Ku band and you will not regret.

you may also attach a special c band lnb barrel to your lnb and do away with the dialectric plate as they take roughly around a 2 to 3 db loss on certain circular signals.

I don't know how it is in your region/country, but here in Europe it's hard or impossible to find mesh dishes. Import from China is possible, but I have doubts about the quality.

I recently found a 2nd hand mesh dish, but I didn't install it yet.
