What? You think anyone who uses Phidgets could ask for a free one as a test? Or are you planning on nominating one HB Phidgets user to be the designated HB trier-outer?

Phidgets might well want to send one to Marko to see how well it performs with Artisan, but somehow I think that's between Phidgets and Marko.

My penny worth of contrariness for the morning.

That was pretty much my thought, it's not unheard of...pretty much anything is being marketed via 'reviews' these days, as long as the potential user/buyer base is large enough.

Patrick a lead developer wrote on the Phidgets Forum:

TMP1101_1 has not been upgraded for faster data rates. The shield icon on the latest rev means that it supports longer cables and improved immunity. Some new VINT devices also support higher speeds, but this kind of spec change would also result in a new rev of the product - ie TMP1101_2.

Here is a great video that clarifies : https://www.phidgets.com/docs/VINT_Upgrades
