    Wave ICE-2000 intelligent blocker died...

    My ICE-2000 intelligent blocker decided to die on Friday morning. Santinelli, doesn't service this piece of equipment because, "the ICE-2000 is really old." This blocker is 11 yrs old...but has been very well taken care of and has in no way been abused or over worked.

    I was told by Santinelli that the closest intelligent blocker to the ICE-2000 is the ICE-1000 which carries a price tag of $19,000.

    A little searching on the internet brought me to this company, Optical Equipment Center. Their price tag for the ICE-1000 was $2,475. Other than their ICE-1000 being a refurbished model...I can't see why there is such a large difference in price.

    Is anyone currently using an ICE-1000 intelligent blocker? Pro's/con's?

    Is anyone using an ICE-1000 intelligent blocker with a Santinelli (Nidek) LE-9000SX edger? Pro's/con's?

    Has anyone done business with the Optical Equipment Center?

    Your thoughts and comments would be greatly appreciated. :)

    Me-1200 on that site is $8000, it's a 60k machine in high demand.

    The prices are fake, I'll sell you an ice-2000 for $1,500

    Thanks for the offer of the ICE-2000 for $1,500. But I think I am over having my blocker and auto lensmeter together in one unit. As for the Optical Equipment Center...they will only take a "bank transfer" for the machine...so that, in itself, leads me to conclude that they are a questionable company to do business with.

    As I google things like optical equipment, auto lensmeters, ICE-1000, Briot VL1000, etc., I am shocked that their company keeps coming up within the first 5 search results. Also you can find no information on the company at all. I emailed them and asked for two referrals of US customers that they have worked with. But I was told that I was asking for "secret company information." Yeah, right.

    Thank you for your input.

    Be aware of http://www.opticalequipmentcenter.com

    I believe that this optical equipment center is a scam. Nobody can offer new machines from all the makes at prices that are not even factory prices, the prices they advertise are not real prices.
    This site was launched after the site: nidekme1000.weebly.com was closed after proved scam as shown in this blog, Please check:

    http://bagosukato-yanidilla-scam.blogspot.com ; they ask to send the money to indonesia, not even Japan.

    The problem with scammers is that the scammed fears to admit guilt or openly admit that has vicmimized.

    thanks.
