MyChron Timers?

has anyone used these timers? I'm not all that happy with my XT's, both of which have been sent back a number of times. The Mychron are more expensive, but are they higher quality?

I have one hard wired and velcro-ed to my gixxer. No problems at all. Even cracked the display when I crashed last year and it still works.

Except mine is hardwired and is back-lit so it looks blue/white.

That's the one I'm looking at
I noticed the hardwire version is the only one that is backlit.
How hard was it to hardwire it in?

Not hard. Red/black wires directly to battery.

ordered it up, we'll see how it does. At this point, just about anything is better than the XT's. I'll test it out Monday doing some supermoto
