Hey good review....

Looks like EMS have updated the drivers since I last looked, which work better with mame (off-screen reload etc...). They also amusingly link to a video I made playing HOTD2, on their gun-comparision page!

Only lik-sang went under. Gun seems to still be available.

I have no personal knowledge of this vender.

I got mine from Cliff Racer. Apparently they have been down for maintenance for over a week though, so who knows what is going on with them. Consoleshop has them right now.

If there ever becomes enough interest, I could easily beat those prices from my wholesaler, but I would ned to purchase several to make the shipping and exchange rate worth while.

I'm able to get the blaze stands also (for TV's wider than 60")

I ordered mine from http://www.playasia.com and it came in about 10 days time from HK...

It costs about 35 with 18 shipping so 53 total.. I didn't think it was too bad, but if you can find a cheaper price with a reputable dealer I'd definitely go with them.

Stobe has anyone talked to you about interest in these? I'd love to grab two if there has been. I may order them from playasia by the end of the week if not. Let me know  :D

i am in the process of moving and saving up for a summer vacation, but put me down for 2 if you happen to buy in bulk
maybe you could take "preorders" for them until you reach your goal, that way you won't get burned
(i would imagine that you wouldn't have too hard of a time selling them though)
