I am very happy with the newt I got from GEM. I know some people have had
lemons, but I'm pleased. You have the chance of a dud no matter where you
buy. I few months ago, the $249 GEM was asking was a great deal. Now the
$219 they want seems way too much. Just make sure to do your research
(email the seller) before you buy.
