Anyone using one of these units?

For $200 looks like a pretty good unit. Certainly better than a comporable lowrance or garmin?

Any thought appreciated.

It looks great in sunlight! At 240 x 320 pixels it's got the best screen res in its class. It's a full 300W output, which will be great for a guy in relatively deep water, but a lot of threads here reflect poor shallow water performance on higher-power (300/600/1KW) machnes. Rule of thumb: A machine built for deep water probably won't be great in shallow, and vice versa. If you get a 300 or 600W machine up shallow, run on 200 kHz only with the gain down.
