Summary: Because the reviews that I read when I bought this piece at a premium price told me the machine was very reliable, I feel I was lied to. I feel that many reviews at the time were probably advertorials or somehow Velocity Micro got some favorable coverage in exchange for advertising dollars to make it that way. The more I research, the more I find similar stories about Velocity, so this reliability thing was just never true.

Would a customer really say some of these things?This review was obviously put out by Velocity Micro marketing people, look at all the exclamation points. And, they had someone find the review helpful 19 times to make sure it pops up first. I'm taking a screenshot of this and exposing them!
