I have tested various goggles, I would say this, I much prefer my fatsharks to box style, I even got my missus to do a blind test (she has never flown fpv so I got her to try both styles) and she preferred fatsharks.

Now there are two problems wit( that statement:
1. It ignores cost, you can ge5 a set of box goggles for under 50 quid, fatsharks will run you over 300
2. Context - many pilots start with box goggles never having used fatsharks and are fine.

The fs are unquestionably better in my opinion but not 6x better
Pick a box google that ideally does diversity reciever, check yt or take recommendations from here

That is a tricky one.  I want to upgrade my HK Quanum ver1 google box.  Its OK, really it is.  Its a good solution for me as I wear glasses.  I have felt that I should be keeping my glasses on in case I have to rip off the googles and go POV quickly without having to don the specs but will I really ever need to do this?  Probably not.  If I do need to, it will be game over pretty fast probably.  My eyesight isn't that bad either without specs.  I can probably see well enough to get my quad under control at a distance......probably.

I just can't decide on which FPV googles to buy, there are lots to choose from but they are all lacking in one area or another going from reviews.  Cheap ones are cheap and costly ones are a rip off......

I might take the plunge and get some Fatsharks for my Xmas pressie, not sure which model to get.  A DVR would be nice but not too essential.  The model with the cooling fan looks fairly essential.  I don't really need a video receiver either but an inbuilt one would be nice..probably.  I can use my old Quanums for passenger rides and demos if I get a new receiver.

my advice is keep saving up a matey I looked at all the cheaper googles when starting and tried a butt load of different monitors from mates til I tried my mates fatsharks,once I tried them I wouldn't go back to anything else,have seen 2nd hand fs doms for a good price around forums and gumtree,ebay etc.

I think ive probally flew under 5 flights without fpv since getting mine and that's only if ive forgotten to charge or pack the googles for a flight  ~~

Go for fatshark, second hand or new,,,,, if your flying fpv you'll end up buying them anyway.
Once I'd bought and tried fatsharks and got used to them, I never flew LOS again !
