Thread: Pretty impressed with my PowerTIG 200DX

    I like the green! I am a member of MANY web forums and this is by far the easiest on the eyes. I'm interested in how you like the 200dx as I am also thinking of using my 25% off discount on that unit (maybe). But I guess that depends on if I actually get to 100 or not

    I agree as well. But some people must have different temps or settings. I can read it just fine. As well, I like seeing green...

    lol, it makes my eyes do weird things. After I look at it for a while and look away everything looks kind off--like I've been sitting in the sun too long.

    Black background w/white webpages do the same. Maybe I'm just weird

    That's pretty natural. After looking at one color for a long time, they eyes get a bit used to it and will seem to get less sensitive to it temporarily. That's why colors seem a bit off afterwards. Your eyes will pretty much filter out some green until your eyes adjust.
    Is it OK to want to break something just so that you can weld it back together?

    I like seeing green too... in my wallet.

    I don't think the forum colors are offensive, but it definitely takes a few minutes for my eyes to acclimate.

    The green is nice. Green being the color that the human eye is most sensitive to, the layout should be fine. S/F....Ken M

    Any more updates on the 200dx? I have pretty much decided on getting one and would like to hear some more experiences with the welder

    Can't do it, Rod. Can you imagine the backlash if these forums went all purple? LOL

    Same here. As soon as the ol mean green is over. Lots of videos on te 250ex and pp256 but I can't find a whole heck of a lot on the 200dx. I'm especially interested in the new one!

    Hopefully not. It seems like the 200dx is a popular model, so I would bet they keep quite a few in stock.

    Yeah you would think. With the new version coming in & the contest ending in a few weeks, they may seriously blow through some inventory though.

    what feature(s) do you use most often that justifies the purchase of the 250 over the 200dx?

    Thanks. I don't think I will ever need to weld anything over 1/4", so I'm more interested in the features vs. the output. I do see your point about the duty cycle though.
