- Sep 1, 2008Thanks alot, Stu. I'm gonna try to go to SBIG and personally see and have
them explain their full line to me. Some have enjoyed the Apogee as a better
camera, but seems to have some performance problems. The SBIG seems to be
getting overall favorable reviews from other posts.

If you can wait for your camera, SBIG has a new line of USB 2
cameras, the STX series on the way.
I love SBIG cameras, I have 5, but the 26 second downloads on my STL
11000, with USB 1 are painful.
Wait for the new cameras with the better cooling from SBIG.
