I never heard of them until your post, and did some quick research;
The overwhelming internet feedback paints a dismal picture. Complaints include shoddy construction, cheap components, non-functionality, safety issues, non-responsive customer service, lack of warranty, etc.;
If you have no desire to waste money, coupled with any sort of instinct for self preservation... DON'T BUY;
Identify and narrow your goals. Typically, 1kg and a 250g roasters serve different needs; and
Don't be "first." Choose your first roaster from those which have a successful track record and enough users so that you can get specific help when you need it. If you've already decided on an entry-level but high-quality, electric drum, your best choices are probably limited to Gene, HotTop, and Quest -- but you can enlarge the list to include Behmor (low initial investment, reasonable quality).
I could not find anything at all so I posted a thread. I was basically sold on a hottop. It's a personal roaster with the control or simmilar to of the b but large quantity. This was very attractive from a price point.
