Product Review (submitted on April 4, 2014):

I'll spare the details of the unit, which are really good for the price.

The issue I have is with technical support. Only 3 months into ownership, the plastic ring on the machine that sends the gas down the supply hose cracked, thus allowing gas to escape inside the machine. I've left two messages over the past two days with technical support and have gotten no call back. When I called customer service, they tried calling the tech line and said they must be busy. Only technical support can authorize a warranty item. While I appreciate the price point, this is not what I expected after the sale. I hope this was a fluke and speaks nothing of the overall build quality of the machine.
