Innovative Motorsports Air/Fuel meter?

I did a search on this and came up with some good info. I have wanted to put an wide band air/fuel meter on my car for some time and this thing (Innovative Motorsports LM-1) seems to a good price/performance compromise. It can now log RPM and air/fuel data on a graph for up to 45 minutes. Does anyone have direct knowledge of their products?

I don't have any direct knowledge of the innovative, but you might take a look at this one too.

Great product support, can log up to 5 parameters for up to 45 minutes and has good PC software so you can make sense of your data. I've been doing research on the few available WB sensor/data loggers and this one looks to be the best bang the money....at least for now.

The wide band comander looks pretty good too. You can get both for about the same price, the Innovative one is digital though. I could mount the gauge in place of my attractive, but non-functioning, clock. Choices-choices.

Yes, I have one and have been using it to tune my EFI in the Lotus clone. It does everything they say for an incredible price. I spent $135 for a Split Second A/F meter for the Porsche a few years ago and it it's just a slow responding LED display, not even wideband, and can't record anything. For $350, the Innovate piece is a bargain. I would have paid more for dyno time than that to accomplish what I have been able to do just driving on the street. I got in on a group buy and saved about 10%.

Haven't had time to hook it up to the Porsche yet. I bought the aux. cable too so I could log RPM, but haven't even played with that yet, either. I did load their software and downloaded a few sessions thru the serial cable supplied and everything worked as advertised. Support is great with the forum, etc.

Here's another:

However, this one doesn't have data logging. In addition, their gauge is a little more readable along with a provision to display to an Autometer round LED gauge.
