OP here.. wow I never meant to start a 3 page thread from a simple rant. I never meant to ruffle feathers either. I never said I could not AFFORD a recap on my unit. I was simply pointing out that I could purchase a fully restored 1080 for the price I was quoted for a simple recap of the one I already own. I bought this unit fully expecting to put another 6 or 700 in to it.
