    I'm seeing reports that several folks already have one.
    If you do, where did you get it, and how much did you pay???
    Thanks!!

    I love my pronto and consider it money very well spent, but to spend that much more just to upgrade to color is not in my future. Hopefully those prices will get more reasonable at some point.

    I don't have a Pronto now, so I'll probably get the Pronto Pro for my first remote.

    I agree witht he logic expressed here, if I had a Pronto, I wouldnt spend that much to upgrade, but since I currently do not have one, I think this might be my dream unit

    This would be a dream! Too bad it costs more than my receiver!

    Mine was ordered "by mistake" a week ago (damn eBay and their "Buy it Now" button). I've since been able to sell off my TSU2000 to help defer the cost of the darn thing.
    I'll let you know my review after I've received it.

    I have a Pronto TSU2000 that I'm very happy with (for the moment...just saw the comparison of the ProntoPro to the Pronto and now I'm dreaming again!).
    I'm told one of the other major benefits of the ProntoPro, in addition to the color interface, is the ability to use it with RF equipment in addition to IR. I think you need some sort of add-on piece to make that work, however.

    I have a 2000 and a Pro. The big advantage of the Pro is the RF base and its capabilities. Unfortunately, I do not have that yet.

    Do not forget the additional 2 hard buttons on the remote [​IMG] Very nice for dedicated lighting control buttons.
    The RF base will contain an array of IR emitters to tranlate the RF signal back to IR to control the IR based devices programmed into the touchscreen through the PC based software.
