Default Dyno for testing tuned motors.

As the title suggests, I am looking into purchasing a dyno to see what affects my tuning is doing in real numbers. So far I have only found two units that are available on the market, the Robitronics from Europe and the Fantom from the USA. I would like to hear any input from those that have used or have any knowledge on either of these two units. Durability, accuracy and ease of use. If you know of another quality unit please let me know where it can be found. In advance, thanks for your time and input.

Thanks guys, that is the kind of information I need to digest. If anyone has links to the mfg of any available dyno on the market now, would appreciate.

Does anyone sell the TurboDyno anymore, or are they completely out of circulation now?

Yeah, I've seen em, I would prefer new though. I wish CE would come out with a new Dyno...

Sadly, CE has stated the Turbo Dyno will not be mfg again. This leaves the low level rpm testers (Integy and the like) and the accelerometers (Robitronics and Fantom) so my research has been rather disappointing. I guess waiting and keeping an eye out for a CE turbo dyno...

I would still buy an old CE Dyno, but I'll keep hoping they make a new model

I would love to get a used Turbo Dyno, just that the odds seem poor in my favor finding one. So, if anyone comes across one, let me know about it
