So how many good prepros do they have to make until you are comfortable?
(and what was the issue with yours when you had it again?)
But then again, does it really matter since you are not buying one anyway and those that have (200s) apparently are happy with them?
I had a UMC-1 and now I don't. But I do not automatically count them out as an option.
(If I did that with every gear I owned that had an issue I think I would run out of manufacturers and just give up on this hobby.
If someone wants UMC-1 advice, I feel I can honestly give them some.
Sometimes my advice gets them by, sometime I flat out tell them to try something else.
It all depends on the situation because everyone's setups/tastes/situations are so different.
Sorry to single your post out, no personal attack intended, just a point I'm trying to make.
