I think the $130 cost is plain stupid for this switch....whether one can afford a 959 or not doesn't make it ( in my mind) any less stupid, as an item of cost relative to what it is.
Yes, indeed, I took the switch apart already, but someone else was already in there, and had lost one of the springs, so I had to order a new one, which fixed the problem pronto...
