    Buddy of mine just got them. They look cool. But he already broke the hook off the back and said something about having to send them back. All this after a few days of owning them.

    Might as well have hose ports on the box too, when you need a reading quickly open the box, but shut it before anything falls apart

    Well I like the case to protect expensive tools. I liked it in my first generation digimon which I still have. And my testo 550 also came in the case, which I like since storage is simple. The sman3 I have not used yet cause I need a case for them. I don't like the huge case that field piece offers. I prefer the size of the digimon and testo case. I have a truck so I store my testo and digimon on my tool box in the bed. That way they are out of sight. The sman3 are still in the box at home till I find a case that I can fit them in.

    Don't think my 570 or the Sman4 will ever see the inside of a case. My analogs didn't, and the digitals are suppose to make my life easier. If they break, then I expect all will hear me bi*ching about them, but I so no reason to baby them. The last set of Imperials that I bought weren't exactly cheap either.

    Maybe your right. I was just so disappointed in the answer that was given from the VP. I guess it kinda rubbed me the wrong way. I myself have owned or do own several sets of digital gauges from several different manufacturers all the way back to the first gen Testo 523's. I've always received great customer service and that response just sent me for a loop.

    I guess it makes no sense pointing out the obvious and I'll just shut up until Mark posts his review maybe then we can have a good discussion.
    I completely understand where you're coming from. you get invested in something, then expect the same investment from the supplier/manufacturer. The beauty of this field of work is that talk means nothing......results mean everything. we can talk ourselves blue in the face with any number of a thousand issues....in the end, the results need no words.

    Guy at work has a set of hilmors. He only uses them on new start ups. not troubleshooting.

    But our supplier said use it for a couple months if you dont like it he can switch it out for the sman4.

    thought that was pretty good offer

    Do you take the hoses off to put them in the case?

    If you want them in the case that's fine. But most guys don't like stuffing gauges and hoses in a case after every call, much easier to grab them off the rack they are hanging on and go.

    If digital gauges should go in a case then analog should for sure! Analog gauges are not all that accurate new, let alone after they have bounced around in the back of a van for a week.

    Yes I take the hoses off and place the caps back on my 550s. Then hoses and testos stay in same case. It only takes about 1 min to put hoses back on so I don't see how you save so much time. To me its not how fast u get in and out of a service call,but that u properly diagnose and repair it the first time.
    Not every tech on the field takes care of their tools the same. I like my tools looking clean and in like new condition.

    None. I converted it to Lithium Polymer right away. $20 for two batteries that run the gauges for 24 hrs at a time and take one hr to charge.
    I do three kinds of work.
    1 - Good - 2 - Fast - 3 - Cheap
    Pick two

    So MR VP you got yourself a digital gauge Expert a set to review. How about a digital rookie review. To see if someone going digital for the first time can pick them up easily.

    Maybe say in a harsh environment like Canada .........Maybe

    What gauges are we even talking about?

    The user manual for the digimon sc gives instructions that the manifoldSHOULD not be used in the rain.

    Im not sure if it can be used in the rain?

    What happens if it blows up from water damage?

    Is it still covered by warranty?
