    So the 4th time was the charm. Put the replacement through a 5 hour session - and only 1 minor jam. Previous unit would have jammed up ~20 times in that time. Was a bit disappointed that I received a refurb that was scratched up but this one actually works.

    I opened up it up and lined the inner walls with dynamat and the underside of the lid - cut down on the noise by 50%.

    Alright, my friend has an old shuffletech that he calls a piece of junk. He wants to "sell" it to me, for a pokerbuild I have planned.

    Two years on from the initial reviews, I was just wondering if people are still using their shuffletechs and if you still would recommend it?

    thanks!!

    $350.00 is the price on ebay for a used one. But there has only been a few used ones on there, so make sure you get a good trade value.

    I'm wondering:

    1. Is this still the only sub $1k automatic shuffler on the market?

    2. What would you compare the noise level to? Any fixes?

    3. How many hours of usage before a failure occured? What was the failure and how quickly did Rick respond?

    If I spend $600 on a shuffler, I'd like it to be reliable and fairly quiet.

    Thanks for your thoughts :)

    1. Yes. And I don't think you'll get one cause they're in a legal battle with ShuffleMaster and the home poker scene has taken a dive along with poker interest in general so neither Shuffletech or anyone else will offer this.
    2. Drop cards from 2-3 ft upright into a empty plastic box. Make sure they don't land flat and that's the noise you hear. I only got some comments in the start, noone has commented on it for years, but we're a noisy/drunken bunch.
    3. Hard to remember, maybe after 8-9 months and playing 1-3 times a month for average 10 hours each night. Mine was one of the very first, and I asked for parts as I didn't want to ship it from Norway and back again so I got the parts for free. Nowadays, there's no way you'll hear from him if you have any issues. Assuming you're able to buy one. I repair mine about 3-4 times, it's just minor adjustments. Every ~18 months or so, an o-ring will snap and would have to be replaced. Other than that it's just some mechanical thing that is out of whack and is easily fixed. At least for me who has fixed it so many times. It went slower in the start. :)

    Edit: If you actually get one, I doubt you'll be satisfied. It's not quiet and it has its quirks.
