    I got a chance to test drive the new Matco Maximus which is a Launch "Pad", in a Matco shell, I believe. It is PC based, Windows 7. It only has 2GB of RAM and it is slow.It has a small 16 GB SSD and half is taken up by the OS, and programs, leaving less than 8GB freespace. The graphing is horrible, but better than Autel's DS708. No BMW. some others may be missing. It looks like everyone is trying to play catch-up to the SO Verus. It has no scope. The construction is super light and feels cheap. Touchscreendoes not always respond, and repeated attempts to open window result in long waits, followed by the double opening of said app. At least it has a battery. I hope that the new Autel MY908 is better. I will wait to see what it is like.

    Well , in my knowledge, MY908 could do better than this Matco pad. Sorry I have talked with our R&D, the graphing is a problem in DS708, but you have to see how it looks like in our MY908. If you are complaining the super light of Matco, then you would be satisfied with our MY908, which makes you look more professional and more formal. Our tool means seriously. ...... Glad to share tech opinions here. .... Now we are all in testing it.

    Reply to 2 floor: I saw the pictures of the MY908 and I like it so far. Please could you show a screenshot of the graphing? I would not mind testing it, so keep me in mind, please.If it has the same coverage as the the DS708 and the graphing is fixed, you will kick Launch's ass! The Matco tool was slow, 2GB RAM, Atom Processor, and a small SSD hard drive ot only 16 GB and only 8 GB available for storage. Very weak. Very slow. They tried to copy the Verus, and came up short. No scope either.

    hmmm, I will sneak in our test lab and see if I could take a shot of some functions.... I will ask our test engineers to do a comparing test with other similar products in the market.

    Hi Scanman, I had forwarded your enthusiastic request to our US office. ..Right now, they are testing this new model to see if it can work fine. Looks like it will take more time than expected.

    Reply to 8 floor: Hi Support, Any word on the new Autel tool? The 808 or 908, I'm talking about. I am tired of my Launch products.. The Maximus still needs improvement so you have a chance to beat them. It may be the worst scan tool I have owned...

    You have no idea how busy all our engineers are for this new model. The launch date is pushing back again and again. We are revising all kinds of stuff all the time... Right now we are working with the outer package. The test results in USA and Eu are all coming back . Now the newest date will be at the middle of this month. .... I hope we can fulfil this date...
