Remember the adage that you get what you pay for. These units have more than their share of issues. If you are comfortable tinkering and putting a few extra dollars into it so that it is usable, then get one. I recommend visiting the forums before making the plunge. Also not all the vendors are created equal. Even though the vendor I purchased it from claims a "2 year warranty", I have yet to have them honor it. Other people have had their issues resolved quickly and to their satisfaction.
