I was thinking of buying a new SBD replacement board. I would normally try repairing my original, but finding the kits are proving difficult since Big Daddy is on hiatus. Anyways, I've found two replacements. Altek and NVRAM/Weebly. If there are any others, I'd like to hear about them as well. My question is, can those with experience using these replacements tell me which one you prefer and why.
Just looking at the pcbs, I see the LEDs on the Altek and while I'm not sure how they work to help you diagnose the board, it may be handy in troubleshooting them. On the NVRAM boards, the power supplies and filter caps just look more robust all around which means ultimately, it may be less likely to fail....at least in the power regulating section.
Sooo, just looking for your collected opinions on your experience with these two boards. Thanks in advance.
And if you happen to know any sources for the the full on rebuild kits for the originals, that wouldn't hurt either.
