    You really haven't seen one tell the truth

    This is the only questionable info I ever found written about his products

    other than that everything else is all true from what I've experienced

    Bullet Proof + Accurate + Easy To Use = Digi-Cools

    I've had the Yellow Jacket version for about a year with no problems at all. I'll prob upgrade to the new version one day, but I work more in the office than I do in the field now and there is no hurry.

    If I understand your Question right .

    The DigiCools can go on any Manifold but doesn't come with one,

    The YJ is more then likely the Digicool 1200 and you can get the upgrade kit which has back light and dual temp probes.

    I have the J&B DM2 and to this day cuss myself for getting them instead of DigiCools. But the DM2 are fine as long as you protect them from moisture like a hawk by using a zip lock bag over the top etc. One Drop OF Water and they are dead! It follows the hanger stem right into the PC board. They do have two sensor thermistors and are highly accurate. They will not track a fan cycle ramp in psi (225 to 300) but will follow a txv throttling accurately.
    They will not hold up to normal banging around or other Bull in a China closet tech stuff!
    The next set will be the "real deal" and be DigiCools!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Just spoke w/some one @ D.C she said they kits will be available next week and their price is 199 USD plus shipping. She said True-Tech tools should be getting them and will probably be cheaper.

The analogs stay in the van unless I've got a dirty job or I'm worried about theft in a lame neighborhood.

    All in all, I'd buy them again.

    I'm hearing some not so nice things about the Testos.........might want to shy away from them.
    Beach,
    I do not know what you are hearing about Testo, but I can assure you that there are no problems with the instrument. I would know. The Testo does have several advantages over any other digital gauge out there including data logging ability, real time superheat and sub cooling, wireless and wired probes, and optional wireless printer. in addition, it comes with a two year warranty. I have a set that has been used almost daily for two years without problems.
    JLB,

    Jim,

    How does the Testo fair as far as water resistance?

    Thanks
