Pros: - Solid construction
Cons: - LOUD fan
Other Thoughts: Everything good except for how loud the fan on the unit is. It might be OK if pressing the "MUTE" button on the front of the unit turned the fan down or off, but it doesn't seem to do anything at all. It's too loud to leave powered on for my taste, and whenever it is turned on there is a piercing "alarm" beep.
