Well retro, now you have both sides of the story. Your 'guy' says it's the best... while classact here thinks it's the worst.
Let's be honest here... it's neither. The latest code in the v1.33 is solid, based on all tests. It is by no means a crappy chip. Is it the 'be all and end all' that your guy says it is? Maybe not, but I wouldn't claim any other chip to be superior. Even the mighty DMS is having stability problems in the v9.
Just have to make your choice and live with it. Good luck.
