I received the Nova-TD 500 from Scan when I'd ordered the Nova-T 500
as displayed on the website.  I explained that it was no use to me and
that it wasn't what I ordered.  They claim that they'll have the correct
card in stock in the next week, so I've sent it back and we'll see what
happens.  I notice they're still claiming it's in stock on their
website, but that doesn't surprise me any more.
