I run a small BIAB set up which I purchased from craigslist for $150. it may be small but boy is it a beast!!!! 85% efficiency consistently!
My very first beer I brewed on it ended up winning the Light beer category as well as 2nd place best in show at the HomeBrewers Jamboree in New Hampshire. In 2 years of brewing I have 9 medals. I have 4 gold medals: Green apple caramel wheat/Light beer/2015, Backyard Pilsner/Light Beer/2016, Chocolate Caramel Stout with bourbon staves/Dark Beer/2016, Dampfbier/Light Beer/2017. 1 silver medal: Starbucks Coffee Porter/dark beer/2016. 3 Bronze Medals: Perfect Pilsner/Light Beer/2017, Shakra Amber IPA/Amber Beer/2017, Coffee Brown Ale/Dark Beer/2017. 1 2nd place best of show: Green Apple Caramel wheat/2015.
I bought a RoboBrew and am now using that to brew. So far so good on it.
