    M&M or Vxt

    Mcdonnell miller PS800 series does have a safety fault feature just like the vxt.  Its not as programmeable as the VXT, but all PS800 models have it.  I like the VXT cause they are much more programeable and have a digital water meter display on some models.  Very nice feature.

    I vote VXT

    the meter alone is worth it to learn a new control.
    Cost is what you spend , value is what you get.
