What about the Revo:


$100 less. Granted it has the ION-LE, but folks seem to think that will work 
OK, and there have been some posts here that seem to indicate the Revo will 
work well as a F/E only.

I'm real close to ordering one, realizing that $200 is not all that much to 
lose if things don't work out.
