Any owners of a Laguna IQ out there?

Has anyone evaluated this model and have any insights or feedback?

It doesn’t look like anyone has!
I see there are a lot for sale on the Web.
Have you looked at the Shopbot desktop units?
I have a Shopbot Buddy and really like it.

Yes, looks like it may not be a favorite. I got some negative feedback on Laguna from a knowledgeable friend. They do not make anything, it is simply re-branded and marketed from what I have been able to find out.

Thanks for the recommendation on the Shopbot.

I am also now digging into CAMaster.

I don’t want to add fuel to the Laguna fire as I have been rebutted by some others.
But I like Shopbot because they are made in the U.S.A. like CAMaster, Legacy, and I am sure there are many others.

The list below are the manufacturers that I considered before I bought mine based on country of origin, support, price, and user base (similar to Shopbot Wiki).

CAMaster
Legacy
Shopbot
