    Just wondering if anything has been mentioned. Do we need to prepare a first look on these things?

    My SL3-SWM has been flawless.

    The SWM8 units have been out and written up....not sure about the SL3-SWM....

    Glad to hear yours is working well. :)

    The SWM8 with the version 2.x firmware and library? Are you sure our units are public? If so, why do we still have a private forum to discuss them?

    Mine's still working great, by the way. :)

    The SWM8's are public....of course not the ones we have been testing with the v2.x firmware.

    In earlier reports...that firmware was not supposed to have anything major changed from previous versions.

    Nonetheless....it would appear we have a consensus that both the new SWM8's and SL3-SWM's have been solid.

    So here's a question I really doubt I'll get any kind of answer for but . . . :) Is there any kind of "secret" or hidden functionality in these SWM's that is not present in earlier versions? If so what is it? :)

    More realistically, if not, why are we still secret? These things work great! :confused:

    My guess would be cost reduction on the newer units. In most cases that is a driving force and sometimes that also creates a little engineering with more common parts or a little design change to verify placement/procedures etc.

    My SWM-8 continues to work great. Not a single hitch once I installed it.
