I bought an original V1 from Mike after he went out on his own, bought another to do a custom build in, then bought my current V1 to replace a stolen unit. Now it's time for an upgrade as the remote display/power head is held together with duct tape.
So I called and the guy say's it's over 14 years old. Still works fine.
But I couldn't resist the 30% off price doing an upgrade. He said I'll be getting a brand new, fully up to date unit. Nice.
Only change I've noticed over the years is Mike used to always be on the other end of the phone.
