Just bought two for US99.98 (UK ~£66) with free shipping. Good deal. Will be
interesting to see how they perform. Also interesting to know what FEI are
currently quoting for new units. Last time I got a quote from them (5
years+) I was quoted over UK£1K each in single qty.

If someone says "or best offer" of course I'm going to make a smaller offer
when multiple items are for sale. This is what the seller is telling you to
I bought one and finally tonight hooked it up to see if it ran. After a few
minutes it locked up nice. For the price, I think I will pick up a couple
more as I have lots of gear for which this would, even uncorrected, be an
outstanding reference. I will make up small switching circuits (or even
tiny relays, I need projects to use them up) to switch over from the crystal
upon lock and light a LED on the front panels.
