RE: Repeater

Then, respectfully, you seem to be suggesting no memory upgrade at all,
because ST is still the safest bet with the guarantee.  I guess if someone
wants to upgrade, they should consider the possibility that they might have
to wait four or five days for a free replacement if it doesn't work.  Is
more than 8 times the memory capacity worth it?  I guess that's up to the
individual.  For me it was a no brainer.  The 16MB standard card is just 
sufficient for my work, even if I had to wait a month.  Hell, I waited a 
longer than that for the unit itself.  What's an extra week?

*** They may be the best, but not all of them.  If Simple Technology
makes one kind of a card out of which some cards work and some not,
when one buys them, he or she is at risk that they will not work with
Repeater (which happened to me).  Then in addition to the price for
the card one needs to add time spent trying to make it work (I did not
have any idea about this problem, trusting Electrix), postage to
Canada, and time of waiting for the new card.  That's why I would not
recommend SimpleTech cards.
