Hi Bruce,
yes I would agree, the spec of 2E-07 is not that great by itself.
But if we look at their market which seems to be space/military/Telecom  
mostly for this part, then it starts to make sense. Not many DIP size OCXO's out  
there, Micro Crystal makes one as well.
I wonder how expensive these parts will be. If they are in the $30 to $75  
range they could be a good match for a lot of apps.
Nice building blocks nonetheless, and their phase noise is very acceptable  
for the size as well. No ADEV specs unfortunately.
