Thanks!  I don't know if you're aware, but one of our IGORs has been transcribing these, also.

No, I am not aware of that. But, what is an "IGORs"?

For the guy who was asking about where to purchase 10 gallon corny kegs, CHI Company carries them (both new and refurbished).  Like you mentioned, they aren't cheap, but they're still my favorite fermentors.

Yes, thanks.  These are really attractive, probably well worth the price.  I hope so,  because I just ordered one.  :)

If you are planning on using it as a fermentor, I think you will be very happy with it.  One thing I would suggest though is to cut the liquid dip tube a bit.  I've got mine to the point where it sucks up virtually no trub and leaves virtually no clear beer behind.

^^^^
My plan is to cut the tube to leave around 2 qts for yeast harvesting.  Otherwise it seems perfect for closed fermentation and transfers and easy cleaning and sanitation.  I've thought about these for a while.  Other options have more small articulated parts, valves, etc than I'm comfortable with sanitation wise.
