    The 1250 has been great. After 1 1/2 years it is still going strong. I don’t baby it and have had zero problems.

    Amazes me with this tool available, that most techs still use analog. No doubt when using the 1250 about CORRECT readings. Keep up the great work.

    I can’t believe I’ve waited this long to get one of these. The 1250 just makes my job so much easier.

    Tough as nails,Right on Accurate,large easy to read screen,Light
    weight,very long battery life.
    Absolutely Love the pressure dynamic graphs that show real time
    pressure changes.That alone is an incredible diagnostic tool.
    also does a great job monitoring vacuum for leak testing.
    View real time super heat and subcooling on same screen.
    I actually Like testing pressures,super heat and subcooling now.
    I use my analog gauges for recovering refrigerant…they still work
    good for that.
    had my DRSA1200 for 3 yrs and as you can see from my discription
    I still Love them..I want to add a DRSA1250 to the Family!
    Thanks Doug!

    DRSA1200 rule’s
    we also have a Testo 560-1 and like them also but I like the Digicool
    much better.
    The Testo has a lot of menu’s for some of it’s functions and no way to
    look at real time pressure change and dynamics and your stuck with
    their manifold.

    I have used both the 1250 and the testo 550. Both are a great product. I must say that the 1250’s are over priced compared to the 550’s. I like the fact you can add the 1250’s to your own manifold but then again that is another cost to go along with the already high cost of the 1250. They work great but so do the testo’s. Wish they could compete in price with the german made product.

    I owen and use the 3 different units, Yellow Jacket, Testo, and Digicool. My first choice is the Digicool as it is much lighter and doesent smoke thru batteries like the Yellow Jacket. Testo has issues withthe manifold and the menu is a bit to navagate.
    I have had machanicl issues with all three and The Digicool people stepped right up and contacted me (I had posted the problem) asked me to send the unit back. Free of charge, they repaired the unit, gave me new clampon sensors for the failed ones and paid return shipping. What more can we ask for?!! They are a STAND UP company and they have a great product. Thank you Brenda you and your team ROCK!
