    I went with Dri core roughly 15 years ago other than having to spend a lot of time  on leveling my floor its been very good.  I found it pretty easy to move machines around on.  I do have to replace a couple due to a plumbing leak but you can simply cut them out and replace. Dricore seems to help with the musty smell i would get between heating and cooling seasons, but would hardly call that a scientific observation. 

    I felt it was a lot of money in the moment, but over time it I feel its been a good quality of life  investment.  

    I tend to think in terms of tearing stuff out and repairs. Anything I have to glue down is a no-go for me.

     the damp-pro looks like an interesting option.

    Well the drycore usually floats on the floor, and you could do the same with the plywood over that large plastic roll.  Might be good to use the T&G ply so you could create better interfaces between the sheets.  

    Good luck!  Keep us posted on your final approach.

    Thanks all!

    I won't be starting it until the end of April, so I'll have some time to mull things over. I'm hiding from the snow in Florida at the moment.

    I decided to go with the Dricore. Started today and hope to finish tomorrow. Then I'll add a 1/2 plywood on top. (spent the past week ripping down walls and putting up a new one).
