That's what I'm looking for...

I had a hard time even figuring out their product line from their web 
site, but it looks like pricing _starts_ at over US $500, so there are 
numerous cheaper options.

We tried ordering from them back in 2006 (after Shawn Wallbridge 
recommended them, and they were almost the only game in town in that

cancelled the purchase order.  I don't think we'll try them again.

Did I mention that I want something quick and easy, that we can count on 
to work reliably?  ;)
