    The smaller Powtran units (160 and 130) use a 10 way IDC cable - the 9130 use an ethernet cable.

    That's what came with my old SAJ VFD - it's a Powtran Clone of sorts.

    I don't think there is any security issue with Western union.

    The problems reported around WU are mainly where someone has been convinced to pay for non existent goods, or a claimed tax debt for example.
    WU is an instant transfer, with no reversal or recourse, unlike PayPal or your credit card, where there is fraud protection and some recourse against the merchant.

    Well, update on my order.

    I transferred my $ in Yuan ( i believe that WU does everything in $US, but then allows users to cash out in local currency) But it allowed me to make sure that i was sending the correct amount.
    You must enter a lot of your details(obviously to try to avoid money trafficking), and the suppliers details (given to you by Nicole)
    Once you have completed the transfer you email Nicole, your address and phone number along with MTCN number. This allows them to collect the $ on their side.

    Nicole will then update you that the payment was a success and organise your delivery.
    Mine will take a little longer as they must wait for the braking resistor to come to their factory.

    Nicole mentioned that this was very convenient for them to receive the payment and also a lot less fees for both parties.
    You do loose your protection as once you have sent the $ through WU it is gone, so please ensure correct details are entered.

    I will update this thread once my drive arrives.

    Update, the drive has arrived.

    Ordered on the 27th June, i was told they had to wait for the braking resistor to arrive (however the drive shipped out same day!)
    arrived in Perth on the 12th July, last stage of delivery by Toll.
    The drive was double boxed lots of packaging it looks great, now just trying to find the time to wire it up and mount it.
    Bob thanks for the great lead on these with the favorable shipping prices.

    Ben
