        Fortunately, not all resellers are that way. The folks I bought my SCSI analyzer from, Prism Electronics, were just the opposite. Not only were they utterly honest about the deal, they actually refunded $50 of my purchase price when it turned out that the unit they were sending me didn't have the emulator board installed as they thought it did.

        FWIW: I have a Lynx floppy drive tester, barely used and still in its pouch, plus alignment media. I remember seeing those things in the Specialized Products tool catalog for over a grand, and I think I paid all of $25 for this one. I'm happy. ;-)
