Now that URC has made Amazon an authorized dealer
of the MX-810 at a reasonable price I may consider getting
it. I am just worried about what I have read about its
horrible software here at this forum and elsewhere. I
wonder why URC has not upgraded and improved the software
very much to date. I guess the MX-880 is URC's solution
to the MX-810 if you are willing to spend another $100.
Regarding Amazon as an authorized dealer of the MX-810, that authorization does not extend to their affiliate resellers. When Amazon begins selling the MX-810 themselves, it will be at the $400 retail price and no affiliate sales will be allowed. Same goes for the MRF-260 and MX-450 (see their MX-450 page for how the other two will be eventually. So, if you're seeing a sub-$400 price on Amazon right now, it's from one of their affiliates that is NOT authorized.
BTW, the MX-450 has software available that allows you to not only save your files, but update the database as well.
The MX-810 software can be made to pretty much do whatever you want, but how that's done is not explained anywhere (expect perhaps on this forum).
