We have three Ericomp dual block machines and they work great.....BUT we 
did have a problem in the beginning with the newer one. It turns out 
that they had updated their software to make them run faster, but this 
resulted in them hanging partway through the program for us, ruining the 
reactions. After sending it back a couple of times, I finally told them 
to put on the old software or else I didn't want it back, and they did, 
and now it works perfect. I should tell you that these are the plate 
machines, not the tube ones. They're the best deal as far as price goes.
