unique small USB modem / tracker / Digipeater  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
I have the µTNT modem since it is available and first used it as a DX Cluster broadcast device for my friends in the region. It worked great, but it can do a lot more. It is an APRS tracker with its own battery built in, it is a USB TNC for Packet Radio and it can be used as a standalone APRS Digipeater. The size is tiny, support via the mailinglist very quick and friendly. The problems with delivery delays have been ruled out I think, the Elcom people are listening to user requests and the firmware updates are frequent and free.
Since today I owe also the new µTNT plus, but I have first to find all its new features. This will be another review.

Excellent product  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
The uTNT+ is a very nice combination of TNC, Tracker and digipeater. For the money you receive a lot of features and what's even better firmware upgrades are free too. The support via the yahoo newsgroup is excellent and fast and Elcom actually listens to feature requests of their customers.
