I've never used them, but heard they were really nice. I knew my 1650 was an older model, worth maybe $1K. I picked it up used at a swatmeet about 2 years ago. The guy said their lab was getting rid of all their obsolete equipment. But hey! It's great to have around...assuming I ever get the time to figure it out. :) -Chris -- Archives (includes files) at http://www.biglist.com/lists/stella/archives/ Unsub & more at http://www.biglist.com/lists/stella/stella.html Don't post pirate BINs to Stellalist.
