    I have had that one, with the printer, for the past few years. The display isn't as nice as the Testos but I have had no problems with it. I think it will serve you well.

    Finally today I got the quote from Testo to calibrate my 330 analyzer, according to them the O2 and CO sensor are spent and the total cost is $1272, told them to send it back, I could buy a new unit for that kind of money, bunch of thieves!

    Yeah, that's why I went with the Bacharach. Before that I had the UEI 155, which came with 5 years free (not counting shipping to them) P/M, but 'magically' didn't require any sensors until it was out of the 'free' zone.

    And before that, similar, but not quite as expensive experience with the Testo-cles.
    Uh...Google it yourself!

    I had a Testo 327 for years... worked nicely... until the sensors started failing...
    And Testo wanted big bucks to repair/re-calibrate it.

    Bought the Bacharach... never looked back.

    IMO the Bacharach is a better unit.

    I think you'll be pleased with it.
    Have you been to the NCI training class for CO and combustion analysis? It is the most eye-opening training I've ever had.

    I am going to that class week after next, really looking forward to it. Also interested on Jim’s take on the new Accutools analyzer.

    I also have the Testo 327 w/printer and oil kit. No issues, it has to be over 10 years old on the original battery. I have had it recalibrated, and sensors changed. When it comes time to replace them again, I think I'll skip the calibration. They designed it to allow for field replacement of the sensors. Unless there's an issue, I don't see the need to send it in every few years.
    I believe the old 327 was built more solid than the newer 320 and 310 models.
