Front suspension roundup

So with spring somewhat on the horizon, I, probably along with many fellow F8 owners plan on the all too coveted front fork upgrade.... I've done a lot of reading, and was hoping to get a consensus of the pros/cons of each setup out there..... I'm really interested in functionality, longevity, and price. So far I think the following upgrades are available

Cheapest/easiest- New springs/oil

Cheapest cartridge set- Bitubo

Higher end setups- ohlins or traxxion

Cheaper but more difficult- front end swap

Anyone with experience please chime in with the pros/cons or any other options. Hoping that an all inclusive thread might help us that are looking to do this soon. Thanks!
