Less than the cost of an Expression1

Yessir!  That was a "temporary rebate" good through October 31st, which just became permanent.

Makes it very tempting.

Not only Sweetwater. That is the new MAP.

Looks like a great deal on a solid entry level digital console.

Isn't this the console that lock ups if the wifi connection with the iPad drops?

On my Expression it doesn't care what the iPad is doing.  You do have to keep the router up and have up before booting the console.  I have both on a UPS and no problems.

Unlike Bob, I didn't want to have the convenience of a rack mount frame and wanted the 24 input/fader desk.  So this price drop has me crying 2 months after I got my Expression 2.  Oh well, that's the way things go.

I bought one and sold it a week later... There are better consoles out there for the money. A price drop this soon after coming out just proves no one is buying it and they had to lower the price.

How many "no ones" do you know? Also, could you provide a list of those consoles and perhaps a feature comparison please.

I would also like to know a better console in that price range. Also I'm sure it was a marketing thing because the X32 dropped in price at the same time it was released. That would tell me that maybe someone else was worried about this release. I have multiple Si Expressions and Performers and have never had a BE complain about the sound quality. I have had many compliment the EQ sound quality compared to there X32s.

The board looks great and appears like the obvious choice to me.  Can someone tell me why I should buy another Expression to replace my stolen one instead of the Impact?

I sure can't!

Don't know what Soundcraft's long range plan is, but the Impact appears to have leapfrogged the Expression line.
