On the Deus its claimed that it has a hugh design flaw and reviewer explains
"The Deus is a very good machine. It has great depth and it hands down has the fastest target analysis (reactivity setting) of any machine on the market. I want to like this machine, I really do. However, it suffers from one huge drawback: the Deus remote. In the first two weeks of owning the machine, I lost the remote while climbing up a hillside through some brush. After hours of searching I ended up dropping $650 on a new remote. "

So the reviewer lost his remote ... oops!!! and I am lost for words!!! Though the fact that he had to fork out $650 is more than enough compensation for my inner Karma!!!!!
