Agreed! Not to mention there isn't a single US vendor that has the
.1D in stock... I was going to order one last night shipped from
Switzerland, then noticed they don't sell AC adapters (yeah, they're
easy enough to get a hold of, but it sure would make my life a lot

Still, with the price difference, I'm surprised there aren't more in
use. WRAP .1D is $1 cheaper than a 4501, w/o AC adapter, and WRAP is

place of 4501's, but they sure could make ordering them easier.
