I Collen, I have only used a VIP 5 and love it.  They are workhorses when well cared for.  We recently acquired the VIP 6 AI to back up the remaining years of our VIP 5.  The last time our VIP 5 had a PM it was down for 4 days which included a weekend and we only have one processor.  The VIP 6 has many up grades for Solution Management.  We have not had it long enough to give feedback.  Sakura only makes the VIP 6 now so you may want to consider the VIP 6 instead of the VIP 5.
Thank you,

HEllo Histoneters,

I am looking at replacing my VIP2000, porr girl finally quit on me.

The two processors I am looking at:

Leica ASP300S
Sakura VIP5

Any of you out there who have used either of these or both, can you give me pros , cons, yes, no....I am just looking for experiences those who have used them can share.

Thank you in advance.
