You bought one too from Unicomp!

I love mine, so this was a very welcome review to see from you.

You also explained some of the confusion I had too, with the manufacturing and whatnot.

I really wonder if they just were in the back of a warehouse, and were meant to be sold in a fire sale and just missed the boat, got refurbed, and then put back hoping for the light of day.
