Sure, I drink the Blue KoolAid but there's a reason.
I never even blinked when I bought their digital scale. I didn't even think that I should blink. It's Dillon, it's going to work just fine.
My one and only press is a dillon, I think if I were to get one it would be one with the dillon name on it. I love their products and they have proven to be very consistent. After thinking it over though even the scales we use for .gov/DSE/DOE contracts with m781's can be very finicky. When the machine fires up it throws everything out of wack.
I'm sure they work and I do agree, one bad apple tends to go everywhere and shout their problems (example, TNfrank on this forum) However even users with good reviews often stated problems. Usually corrected in a efficient way. It just left a bad taste in my mouth. To much chance when the beam works. Even if it can be a real pain at times. I'm not saying I wont ever get one. Just that I need to do alot more reading and weeding through BS. I dont necessarily doubt dillons model, but the not being covered with their outstanding warranty (as with all their electronics), somewhat shuns me away. I do trust dillon, but I guess at this moment in time. I just dont trust any electronics in my price range.
As for the rough numbers. They are certainly off. That was a total of about 30 samples of a variety of manufacturers. About 30 for each manufacturer. A very very small overall sample. Of wich I could probablly comfortably call BS or user error on half of them.
