    I was wondering after some time what the owners of this unit think about its functionality with centrafuse. Is it fully compatible?

    This unit looks exactly like the Azentek Atlas CPC-1000 shown here on their website http://www.azentekonline.com/cms/content/view/41/146/

    Does anyone know if these are early "test" models Azentek sent out in the wild to get some feedback?

    Support Wiki After purchasing this unit, the customer will be granted access to a wiki which acts as the only manual for this device. Currently this is an extremely basic document but it will grow as more data becomes available. The wiki currently has almost no content other than what is on this page.
    What is in the box::

    One page photo of back wires describing location (as seen in this product description)

    Other items of note:
    There is no "front end" installed nor are any fully supported at this time.
    Front ends on the market do not currently support the radio. The radio can be controlled through the basic radio application.

    The buttons on the front have no function other than mouse right and left click and they have function in the basic radio application. Sofware could be written to enhace their function, but will not support that outside of providing data for the wiki.

    I think that is covered in line 5 of the post. No support, don't expect any, there won't ever be any.

    Just curious what re-posting the product description does when it is on the product detail page of the Guru PC in the store? My question has to do with the Azentek Atlas comparison as the front photo of both units are identical with the exception of the logo.

    Now does anyone know?

    I think Bugbyte's answer wasn't directed towards you. Anyway I think its the same device. I read on a different forum (or this one) that it was just rebranded. I think Azentek stopped production on that unit or something.

    Sorry for the confusion, the post came directly after my question so it threw me off. In any event, you are probably right. IMO, I just don't see someone spending $3000 on this unit that is not supported at all when the Azentek unit will be out late this year. I was looking to purchase one of these units, as I'm sure I'm like many and don't want to wait, but at this price it turns me off.
