I almost boughr one a few days ago. No yoke but a standard steadicam spud (I think it's an mk-v accessory... add $150). They only make one brightness now, the 900nit one. But there are two versions:
Version 1 is the monitor with all the cool features and connectors, and the power plug is the same as my elec shaver (same one Tiffen put on their bubble -- nice job shopping at Radio Shack guys). This "basic" version is $1450.
Version 2 (I think they call the SC for steadicam) is the same monitor except for an 8 pin double-keyed lemo connector that won't work with any steadicam...so you have to buy a jumper cable for $210 to work with your sled or XCS bubble. The other features of the SC version is the bubble firmware and possible some waveforms.
They will now put an anton bauer plate on the back for $250 (batt mount is off center so might wreak havoc on your non-coplanar flat spin). I will buy the basic version with steadi-mount and ab plate if I can make a cable to get Greg Bubb's level graphics through a bnc -- I have had bad luck doing this in the past).
Not a bad monitor at all for under $2k, and it's the same width as the tb6 for those concerned (probably no one but me :-) )

Cool, thanks for all the info Ron. They seem like pretty solid little monitors for the price. I may look into it a bit more for a possible backup monitor.
