    x-link ... you got yourself a heck of a deal. I just checked pricing and availability at the manufactures home page and they say $220.00. Maybe the introduction pricing is over. Still a good price but not as good as your price.

    Do you have an address for everyone here in Montreal where we can buy one on the introductory offer?
    It's not junk, it's un-assembled DIY!

    I'm glad to see they are offering something for the home users. Many of their systems (for industrial use) are a few thousand dollars and then for the software to run it, it costs a $100+ per year.
