    Never heard of them and that does sound too good to be true. Personally I'd stick with a top-reputation manufacturer like Graphtec or Summa but that's just me. Do you have a website where you found them? I'm interested to see.

    Yeah, Yeah, Yeah!

    Same Chinese plotters sold on EBay. Okay for hobbyist and no better than a hair dryer. No way for professional work.

    Did you notice that there is No phone number - No address on their website? Only a reference to Las Vegas. That is probably because they do not want you to know where they are when you realize that jackpot was a hoax. Even DeSay gives you names, numbers and addresses.

    If you have used only Rolands, why would you want to switch?

    Those look like a very cheap copy of Summa plotters, and just look at that cheap rollers.

    You would be better off taking the $500 and burning it.

    This is proably the same guy that sells this crap on ebay out of Las Vegas.
    I wouldn't buy it even as a back up.

    "180 day warranty does not cover consumable parts or the misuse/abuse of equipment. We will send out warrantied parts as soon as we recieve a bad part. We will honor all warranties at our discretion. Please note this is a warranty policy for parts NOT a return policy for the machine. All sales are final and machines are NOT RETURNABLE."

    That warranty sure looks promising...

    I'd stick with the smaller 24" model so when you end up throwing it out your door you don't throw out your back :Big Laugh
