Quote:Have you had the MT modded with that aftermarket upgrade to tighten it and put in better gears/bearings? I see lots of posts about the aftermarket service, which I believe is way expensive, but not sure if their current offerings need it or not.

Quote:I would avoid the minitower. I have had two that both died after a couple of months. Unrealiable, poor quality control, and customer service is not great.
Quote:i would not buy a product where you had to send it to another company in order to upgrade it to produce a quality mount. that should tell you a lot about the product. it would be like buying a new car, then have to take it to a auto service shop to get the motor rebuilt. CRAZY!!!!
