Do you know what is the price of Atola Imager and deepspar?


Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I sent few mails to the companies which sell those products:

Deepspar and Atola Imager.

None of them get back to me.

Are they snobs or something?

Or do they bankrupt?

I can't understand whay they are never answer to none of mails, asking to buy their products.

Are those updates can be achieve on the internet?

I mean if I would buy Atola Imager, I would like to save the money about the software updates, so I want to know if those updates can be achieve on the internet?

Many Thanks!

No offence CrazyDoctor (I already told you earlier I do like you), but isn't it a bit weird you're

looking for specialist's tools/solutions all the time with a very hefty pricetag, without even

being able to understand (let alone resolve) very sophisticated technical problems? :unsure:

Apart from that, you're expressing that you're considering to pay $2000 for a device (you don't

even know to operate), but not for the updates :wacko:

These tools aren't magic "Just plug a defective device in, press a button and everything will

get repaired"-devices, but (as the name suggests): "Tools"... they *can* help you in solving

a certain problem (after first having diagnosed the cause of that problem).

Just like, for instance, a screwdriver or a wrench: in the hands of a n00b they're useless. :rolleyes:

Most of the time, things can be perfectly repaired/resolved using very simple and cheap solutions.

The only difference between a "Real"/"Official"- and a "Poor man's"-solution is that it will take

a little more effort using the cheap option (though you will learn a lot from it).

See the Seagate 7200.11 topics for a real-life example. :hello:

You can, for instance, buy a MPLab PIC-programmer for $900, but a "Poor man's" one will only set

you back less than $9 and a couple of hours of carefully re-checking everything before flashing.

Only when you're ready to start up your own "Harddrive-repair" bussiness (after having fiddled and

experimented for a long time), it's worth to buy specific specialists tools.

There's no sense in buying a "Belzer/Gedore" (a well known European manufacturer of quality tools)

screwdriver or wrench when your only intention is to use it to repair your bike once; just get

a "Kinzo" instead... :whistle:

Greetz,

Peter.

That's the deal, CrazyDoctor IS having a repair business and he likes to learn how to run that, I thought you knew (What CSI are you? :P). :sneaky:

Seems like you know some mechanics yourself as not much people actually know Gedore, I have tools from them and they last for ever.

In your hands or in that of a mechanic that uses them everyday? :whistle:

In my experience among the German tools manufacturer HAZET is also a very good brand. I would say "better" than Gedore, but "high" level tools are all at "high level", I will cite Beta and Pastorino among the Italian ones.

I'm not using them so much lately as before, but do you really think I'm working on computers only? :sneaky: Some tools from them I have for 20 years.

That. Such tools aren't magic, and won't do the job for you, nor are a substitute for knowledge.

Just like, for instance, a screwdriver or a wrench: in the hands of a n00b they're useless. :rolleyes:

Nah. I have seen n00bs stab themselves with screwdrivers before, and a wrench in their hands quickly becomes a replacement for a hammer ;)

Somewhat of a poor example IMO. That's hardly the entry level programmer, and you're getting a LOT more than the DIY job (it doesn't even compare), like the USB connection (*and* RS 232), being able to program chips without a computer off of the SD slots with the built-in LCD, the availability of different ZIF sockets, it can be updated, it comes with fairly decent software (that's also familiar), it's well supported by the manufacturer, it's a fairly rugged machine that will last for years of in a production environment without extreme care, etc. But yeah, there's often ways to make-do without the really nice (and often really expensive) tools.

Tools-wise all these companies aren't exactly popular in North America. Here you'd be talking about Snap-on instead.

Kids today. :no:

When I have to remove a CPU I just shout at it really hard and hop it jumps out of the socket and into my hand.... ;)

(I usually have a large sledgehammer in my other hand to give more weight to my words :whistle:)
