How even is the development? With PMK I have to use open 5X7 trays with a 4X5 in sheet each and the ancient lift and drop method to keep things even. If I try tilting the tray for agitation I get swirls!
I have one of these. So far, I am very pleased with the results. I did some c-41 recently and the processing was fine. Did b/w (hp5/ Tmax dev 1:4) and was happy. Inversion agitation w/o surge marks. For me, it was worth the price but I don't do a huge volume and have plenty of time.
