It is pretty standard that you pay for shipping to a company, but they will cover the shipping back since it is under warranty.
I recommend sending things via Priority Mail through the US post office.

It is much cheaper than FedEx or UPS and you can track the package etc.
I hope you communicate with them before sendning it in and had done all the steps to exercise the pins and generate the log files to send them....

hmmm, I purchased an orbit reader 20 plus a couple of months ago and didn't have one week and I had to send it back because one dot in cell 15 wasn't lifting. cost me to send it back. I wished I had had the funds to purchase the new 40 cell unit from APH, lol!

My orbit has had to be fixed at least four times:

Missing dots.

Bad motor.

Dots staying up even when machine is off.

Inability to turn machine on.

Probably have spent more fixing it than it cost in the first place!

Ali,

Orbit Research will be releasing a 40 cell display very soon. Their 20
cell is quite good. The 40 will cost about $1400.

Freedom Scientific sells their Focus 40 5th jeneration display for
around $2800.

Humanware and The American Printing House for the blind have released
their Mantis 40 cell display that has a TWERTY Keyboard instead of a
braille keyboard for around $2500.

HIMS has the QBraille 40 that I believe is about $3200.

I hope that helps you get started.

Hi everyone,



I am new to this group, and I hope that my
questions is appropriate to be addressed in here.



I was wondering if someone could advise me with
regards to where I could purchase a portable
wireless braille display (40 cells)?



I am a Jaws user; however, I love to engage in
reading in braille. Although I like when Jaws
would read to me a long piece of text, I still
wish to also remained active with my braille
reading skills. As braille books takes a lot of
space, braille displays are just perfect when
reading electronic text in braille.



I would be very grateful if someone could help me with this query.



With the best of wishes,



Ali
