I'm suffering a bit of buyer's remorse at this point after reading
this thread. I jumped on the Newegg shell shocker last friday without
really researching it much, as I was looking for a cheap frontend.
It just arrived, but I haven't really unwrapped it yet to test it out.
Should I send it back?
Sadly those Revo 1600's don't seem to exist anymore, only the 3610 for
a lot more money (>300). Otherwise I would get one!
