    You don't even give a brand name. You want people to take time to answer your question but can't even take the time to write a complete sentence...

    Yeah,

    He's undoubtedly asking about the new Everlast 256Si.

    It's still new enough that there's not much feedback from users/buyers that I've noticed. Although there is this thread:

    http://weldingweb.com/showthread.php...-Welder-Cutter

    But the previous 256 model was rated well, and the 256Si is undoubtedly just a digital version of that same 250 amp AC/DC, 60 amp Plasma.

    Of course, I think there's a mostly negative consensus here when it comes to Multi/Combo/TIG/Plasma units, with the rationale that a Plasma function could take the Welder portion out, or vice versa. And I suppose added systems and complexity does impact reliability. However, I had no trouble with a cheap Mofset, DC-only, TIG/Stick/Plasma unit, and after several years of use it is still functioning perfectly, but it was a unit that was only about $500, delivered, tax-free. That Combo, DC-only was my first TIG unit, and I've since upgrade to an Everlast 210EXT, and really dig it for its AC ability, digital interface, and advanced features.

    So, honestly, the 256Si is pretty interesting, at around $1900, which is just a bit more than the 255EXT TIG unit. But the 255EXT has the full-digital interface, wave forms, etc. And it is undoubtedly improved by being digitally-controlled, yet the price remains relatively unchanged. Nice, Everlast!

    Personally, on a higher dollar unit (to me that might mean $1000), I would probably want to keep an advanced AC TIG unit separate from a Plasma function, since a decent 50 amp Plasma unit can be had for around $400 anyway. So, if I wanted a 250 amp AC/DC TIG unit and a Plasma, I'd get the 255EXT and a separate Plasma.

    But, the newest Everlast are great according to Amazon users (I especially like the digital interface stuff, like the EXT series), and their warrantee is really good. So, I wouldn't be needlessly uncomfortable with spending $1900 on a new, "digitally-controlled" 256Si, especially if an "all-in-one" machine was somehow especially meaningful, for space purposes, or some other reasons.

    Mine just came in the mail Tuesday, it looks great, but I have to do some wiring to be able to start checking it out. Everything i have seen on it so far has been positive, and the customer service i have gotten has been very good.
