Consumer reviews are helpful, yes. Especially when they save you over $600. Tell you what, go ahead and buy the damn thing. I think that's what you were hoping to come in here and hear, not that you're a fool to even consider flushing your money down the toilet on such an overpriced contraption. Buy it, use it, and then come back and tell everyone what you think about it. That would be so much more useful than you fishing for approval for the thing you want to purchase.
