Performance wise, the MV89 is very good. The ageing is particularly low
- after only a week from power-up it's running at under 1e-9/day.

By the way, my unit came direct from Russia, not epay.

Thanks Murray. I contacted the seller and he said he would send another if I
paid the shipping. Seems fair enough. I found that the outer oven has stuck
on. I disabled it and tried it to see how it did as a single oven. It takes
a long time to stabilize but seemed quite stable. I turned it off a while
then back on to see how it retraced. I will know in the morning. I know it
probably won't work well this way since it was built as a double oven. I
might play with it and either try to repair the outer oven controller or see
if I can rig up my own outer oven control.
