Ok, I have contacted a retail company for ultrasounds. (won't mention name)

They have 3 available for about the same price (all within 500 bucks): Siui 200, Sonovet 600, and Classic 480.

What unit would be good for a begginner Ultrasounder but fairly serious breeder? Also, any questions I should ask before buying? They said I can try the unit out and trade it in if I don't like it. I just don't feel I know enough about the machines to ask intelligent questions. I've asked about the units, but I haven't gotten a very straight answer as far as features and what works/what doesn't or what the differences are in them. Thanks in advance!

The only one that I am familiar with is the Sonovet 600, which is a model that we used for years. It is a good basic unit that served us well. One word of caution though, if you are not dealing with Universal Ultrasound - the new price dropped on the Sonovet 600 dramatically with the introduction of the digital units, and I think it now retails new for something in the $4,000 range, so if you are looking at used units, bear that in mind (don't hold me to that price exactly though - I haven't bought one in years!!<lol>). If the price you are dealing with is more than that, you might want to contact Universal as they can cut some pretty good deals and have used units as well.

Sorry not to be of assistance with the other units. I'm just not familiar with them so wouldn't want to pass comment and mislead you!

Well, I was quoted 3k for the sonovet600... Not sure that is a good deal if they are 4k new... :-( not sure what to do.

Give Universal a call and see what they can come up with for you. Ask for Peter Brunelli, and say "hi" to him for us!! :-)
