Don't know about the cheapest - probably are. We just bought two more at
work for $585 (university pricing - no GST). btw. I bought the first one in
Canberra almost 2 years ago for $460.

They certainly work well enough and are a neat little unit made by a
reputable manufacturer - I don't think you can really go wrong with them.
I believe that the Lucent RG-1000 is almost the same unit, but at almost
$1000 in these 'ere parts.
