Igor,
1. Basic functions are available in machines.
2. When I was using these machines, it hanged many times creating delays in inspection.
3. Sockets for connections worn out rapidly.
4. Sometimes it did not even catch the reflectors on known ref blocks.

Better not to buy cheap equipment that does not give proper results.

applicable to both. above equipment were purchased from china.
tud500 had additional problem. after 3 months it used to give phantom echoes even after changing the probes.

Hello Igor

Why don't you have a look at some branded ones which can last longer like an Epoch 600 etc?

Regards
Sudheer

I would look into some quality used units. For example there is a ton of NDT equipment on Ebay. I bought three Epoch 600's brand new for less than $3500ea from GP Technical, which is around the retail cost of one of the chinese units. They even had MX2's, Ectanes and MS5800's for shockingly low prices compared to retail. If they don't have what you need there was a bunch of other sellers with NDT equipment there as well. Good luck

I would recommend this Sonatest sitescan 150. Have used both
Krautkramer, Ge & Sonatest in the past. Can't beat Sonatest for battery life, outdoor visibility & menu display.
Recently purchased a Sonatest Powerscan and am very happy with it

I have used devices from Beijing TIME for long years. Based on my experience, the quality is no worse than GE or Olympus, but the price is much less than that.

For MT 2000E , I had never used before.
