For those of you who are shopping…
The hard case is nice, but you can pick up a small tool box at home depot for about $10.00 that works just as good.
The printer is practically useless IMO. I just download to my comp and print from there. I guess if you don’t use computers, and are into hand written checklist inspection reports, then the printer would be your only option.
You do need a USB/serial cable to download the data to your comp. Those can be purchased all over for about $10.00. You don’t need the one from Sun.
Really the only thing you need from Sun is the monitor itself which sells for $595.00 new (and calibrated.)
If you buy a used monitor it will need calibration within the year. Calibration is $135.00 plus $18.00 shipping there, and $18.00 shipping back (from Sun, there are other calibration companies that charge less).
I make these comments from personal experience. I’ve purchased new from Sun, and I’ve purchased used. Both were perfectly good monitors. If I were to be shopping today, I would only buy the monitor, and would likely buy new directly from Sun unless the used one was less than $250.00.
This “package” deal seems like a reasonable price for all that you are getting, if that is what you want.
