I considered it but I am staying away from anything that's not Whites after the F70 disappointment I would have to see some good reviews and videos on it with live digs and see if it has any bugs that need to be worked out before I would invest that kind of money on a new machine. I also don't really like the lack of VDI numbers on the display only going to 40 instead of 99. I think that it might limit the accuracy of the display. The jury is way out on the Equinox. I am already hearing from people stating that it will not replace the Etrac or 3030 so we will see how it goes.

Well, after the noisy Fisher for an example, I'd always be a Whites Guy too.
