[Athen] Braille embosser recommendations?

It concerns me to hear this, as the Trident we bought three years ago (to replace our Juliet Pro which needed repair again) has already been repaired twice and is broken again. I was going to replace it with the newer Juliet 120, because we desperately need to interpoint when we print. Now I’m not sure I should go with the Juliet.

BTW, our old Juliet is currently in service and being used almost daily, with no issues, but she’s more than 10 years old and I fear for her imminent demise. Also, she only works via USB directly hooked up to a computer now, her network capabilities are too old to work with modern networking.

What are people’s recommendations for an Interpoint (duplexing) Brailler now?

Happy new year ATHEN!

Our relatively new Juliet 120 (made by Index) is wonky and I'm not at all happy with current technical support. Specifically, it should not choke on its own firmware update and need an RMA to put back in working order.

Has anyone found an equivalent embosser that is working well for them?

Our needs range from a hundred or so pages per month to hundreds per day, depending on the quarter.

I sure miss our old Juliet Pro.
