    Hey neilh, I have had a Rhinox for almost 2 years now and have no complaints thus far. When the ceramic plate gets dirty, I soak it in a mild bleach dip , followed by a toothbrush to gently "brush" it clean again! And don't worry, I broke my first glass diffusor within a week of getting it. It's the best way to learn.

    Woot. Package arrived on Friday, picked up this afternoon.

    The Rhinox knocks the socks off of the Dasz unit. Diffusion is very fine and over a very wide area.

    Now to see if I can go a day without breaking the stem ;D

    LOL

    2 arrived in the post this afternoon from Singapore.

    I moved my chair,knocked over the 4,5kg CO2 bottle,the pipe flew out of my tank with the diffuser in tow which smashed on the floor.
    Just cut my foot cleaning it up.

    So +2-1 diffusers for the day

    So Niel,Sean,and Gus take the butterfingers award

    Why did you order 4 of them? Just in case 1 supplier didn't pull through? Cool... I'd like to see what you think of the UP Atomizer... Let us know when you get it.
