Been thinking about upgrading but my V1 decided for me.

Turn it on & it falses on laser. Over & over again. The same way my original V1 died on in 1999. Just placed an order for a new V1 & will be sending my 1.7 in for repair, not an upgrade. If the new one is up to speed with the 1.7 without falsing I will keep it. If not, I will send it back & keep my soon to be repaired V1.
