Hello neighbor. I'm located in the foothills near the point. I have top feeders, frame feeders, and rapid feeders. Each has its advantages and things that I like and things that I don't like about them.
I have two types of hive top feeders, the Ceracel feeder and a traditional wooden feeder. The Ceracel feeders are the cats meow of hive top feeders. If you want a top feeder, get Ceracel and don't bother with the traditional wooden top feeders. Top feeders are wonderful for feeding a lot of syrup very fast. You can refill a top feeder quickly without opening the hive up.
Frame feeders are useful down to slightly lower temperatures because they are in the hive. They don't hold as much syrup and you do have to remove a frame to use them. For rapid high volume feeding you can fill a super with frame feeders and drop it on a hive. For frame feeders my recommendation is the Mann-Lake Pro frame feeders. They come with a cover and a mesh tube that the bees can climb up and down on so they don't drown, and if one does fall in, it can easily reach the tube wall and climb out.
Rapid feeders are one of my favorite feeders. Except for the pitiful volume. It holds less than a frame feeder does, about two liters. The volume is something the makers of rapid feeders could easily choose to fix, but for some lame a- reason they don't. A rapid feeder goes over the inner cover center hole and is protected by placing a super above. It is easy to refill without opening the hive while at the same time protected inside the hive envelope. Bees can climb down the inner ramp and cap and access the syrup with minimal drowning risk. They are very easy to clean. Spring and small colony feeding don't need high volumes so they are well suited, and as long as you refill it daily they work well for fast fall feeding. They are well suited for backyard apiaries, not so much for an out yard that you have to drive to. Rapid feeders can also be used to feed granulated sugar and pollen and pollen substitutes.
Stay away from entrance feeders. I don't even know why suppliers sell them. They know better, yet they do it.
edit to add: If price is an issue then you can make an in-hive, over the inner cover mason jar feeder like the one I made that I described in this post Telescoping cover feeder
It can be easily adapted to hold two jars. Just position the jars so they don't drip down the inner cover vent. Bees can some up to feed without getting into the upper box. You'll want to get something more efficient for fall feeding, but its a fine way to start.
