    Anyone looking to go Digital.....

    Check out Truetechtools.com , They are now selling Digi-Cools at a very good price. I was told that soon they are going to put a package together with a manifold and hoses.

    The price is the cheapest I've seen anywhere, so if your in the market check them out!

    It depends on what you are after.

    If your asking when I get out of my work truck and walk to the back which ones do I grab...........

    My Digi-Cools.

    They both have their good things and bad things.

    The digi-cools are very field friendly, meaning I use them like any other set of gauges. I throw them over shoulder, climb up access bumping them on the ladder, dropped them a few times, set them in snow, ect and they always perform. They have an easy display screen and menu.

    The Testo is a slick looking tool, meaning it is very stylish. My dont have a place to connect the other end of your hose, so your stuck dangling the hoses or useing the huge case to lug these around. The display is nice but the menu is hard to inturpert measurements. I had to make a cheat sheet to keep with them so I knew what reading were SH,SC,SST,LST, SLT, LLT, ect..

    They both are great products, and the testo was cheaper, but now with the price on trutechtools.com they are very close in price.

    You know what they say "once you go Digital, you don't go back!"

    Thats how Digi-Cools come! If you by the Digi-Cool from other websites with no manifold it is over $700.

    Truetechtools is putting a package together with manifold and hoses in the future for under 700, I hear.

    Good thing I already got a few of those .

    Thanks Weber but I still don't know. From pictures it kind of looks like the numbers were easier to read on the testo. Maybe harder out doors

    Either set would probably be overkill for me.
    I would be using a set for mostly W/I CLRS and FZRS and pretty much just superheat measurements so pretty simple stuff except for the having to work in the -°F. I guess I'll have to figure out some sorta warming contraption for them.
    I just think now is the time to rid myself of all the negatives of the analog set.

    Would you say the testo set is smaller in size or the same just sideways as the digi-cools?

    I have to say the price is right for me know for either but basically what would be the upgrade to a Digi-Cool 1250? Would it be something I would wish I had for the extra scratch I'm sure it will cost? Hear any changes to the testo's in the near future?



    Would someone find out who has a set of the Robinair Digitals so I can finally rule them out.
    The only thing going for them right now is the unknown.
    You would think some one would have got their hands on one and cracked it open by now to do a visual comparison and testing
    Ya out there Zeus?

    I would forget about the robinar ones, if you like something simple like that YJ has come out with a simuliar product. If you get "Indoor Comfort News", they are in the new product section.

    I'm leaning testo right now only because I don't have a decent manifold
