    All I can say is you represent your company well.

    But like my folks used to say where there is smoke there is fire.

    WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Samas, I have the exact same story!

    Had an apprentice that was top of his class and went on to the apprentice competition!
    Got him some 550s!
    had more problems than you can shake a stick at!
    While I was returning them there was another guy in there returning his! He was just returning them because the hook!
    anyhow!
    Jim, you have lost some serious credibility here on htalk with this statement; " The number of problems versus the number of units in the field was and still is insignificant at the product introduction and now. "
    We are smarter than that and we have friends!

    Then the clamp on sensor broke 1-1/2 months ago. Still haven't got the replacement from UR.
    Then the hook broke not long in service. They sent another. Then it broke again last week.

    I have a lot of Testo equipment. Absolutely hate the manuals. Leave a lot to be desired.
    The 308 smoke tester is the most temperamental tool to use. Going to put the manual pump in the kit, (327-1).
    The 605-H2 pocket T-Meter/Wet Bulb stick is a useful tool, when it works. Battery door is cheesy, have to constantly screw with it to get the display on. Bought a few of them at once but had to return every one at one time or another. Looking for a better version next time around. Last one the batteries that came with it were dead.
    But the 550 showed a lot of promise but just not all it's cracked up to be. Was going to get another at 1st but now rethinking that idea.

    Forgot to mention, $35 for a pack of 10 particle filters for the 327, WTF? Thanks Testo.

    Until they get the stuff right I wish they give us a better idea of what we are buying and change the name on the tool from Testo to Supco.
    Blowing smoke is one thing but that yellow substance coming down don't look or smell like rain.

    I had 2 of those humidity/thermometer stick had nothing but problems with that stupid battery cap as well. I agree i thought it was going to be the best thing ever but like all the testo stuff i own its junk. I admit i have a very small sample of testo equipment 8 sets of 523 2 560 and 2 and 605-H2 and only 2 sets of 523's are still being used Maybe I am just unlucky

    yea i might do that as well, im sick of constantly messing with all the digi tools and hope they are working correctly and accurately from job to job!

    update Testo stepped up had my 550s for a few days and decided to send me a brand new pair so only without them two weeks total with shipping. i should get my brand new pair middle to end of next week.. they didnt tell me what happened with them but they are replacing them for free, well $11.95 counting shipping to them :P

    Are you kidding?

    I'd buy a bunch of backup 550's before I'd go back to analog if they were my only choice !!!!!
