Hi Guys, I have a Bacharach Insight F which I have been very happy with for a few years. I want to get a second one as as spare. I am considering the TPI 709. It's very reasonably priced and again I just need it as a spare. Any opinions or reviews on this item?

    No experience with with either of those. I have a UEi that I'm not in love with, although it seems to work just fine.

    Also have Insight and like the concept of bluetooth only analyzer. Stagger the purchases or sensor changes. Nothing worse than the backup having a bad sensor from sitting!

    The TPI 709 analyzer kit is really worth taking a look at. The TPI DC710 is a really nice bluetooth analyzer. TPI makes a full line of "smart" (bluetooth) devices as well.

    Every since I bought the Insight Plus, I keep the UEI 155 as a back up.
    If I were purchasing a new back up, I'd make them both the same (Insight Plus). Better continuity for your techs, same filter, roll paper, etc. If its just you, rotate them monthly. I sent mine back to True Tech Tools for calibration, turned it around in 5 days.

    I got a TPI but only used it once on my own system. It’s nice how it works through the app, no more Thermo printer with a handful of batteries like my old Bacharach 

    The printing disappeared from that Thermo paper after a few years also.

    I know a rep that handles the TOI brand and tells me the are reliable and a great price point
