All of what John says is spot on.  It's beastly heavy, too.

One rather important thing I'd add -- make sure it comes with (or you 
have access to) the Wavecrest software.  The instrument by itself is 
close to brain-dead without it -- only a small subset of the most basic 
functions is available in manual/local mode.

Best regards,

Charles
