    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.

    I’ve been looking at the testo. Only negative I’ve found is the printer not working in the cold.
