    also have you tried to run a quick search here, lots of brands have been mentioned in my short time here, and most actually reviewed their machines

    having a ball machine, let me give you some of the sugestions i have notised one mine, while not the one you mention it is a ball machine
    -capasity of balls not that important, if the machine you choose can hold as many balls as your ball hooper, thats the one you want, mine holds 300, i never have that many balls with me to use that feature, i usually carry 60 ball hooper, thats about 10-15 minute drill, and seriouly thats a lot of continuous hitting before you need a rest
    -ball speed, mine shoots 70mph, most of the time, i practsie with half to a little over that speed, more than that and its hard to practise with it, any mahcine close to this speed is a good machine, way more than that i would never use
    -spin and oscillation is a good thing to have, random is what i have and it does ok,
    -weight of the machine is important, you will have to lift it in and out of your car when you use it mostlikely, mine is 50lbs, its a beast to lift, not good for girls, women or old people, it really is cumbersom to lift out of the car, but all this weight makes the sam-p1 machine i have very durable, i have hit the machine way too many times and it's build like a timex "takes a liking and keeps on ticking"
