3. not my favorite arguments
some of these argumemts sound like the ones for DRES.
No paper, no proof, no lawsuits.

Better to argue that mechanical less diabolical than computer. IMHO.

I don't think highly of the DS200s, they have too much wrong with them.

How hard is it to create/manuf optical scanners that aren't eaten up with bugs?
Banks use them all the time.

I think that levers have some advantages, but the argument that there are fewer lawsuits
isn't that appealing to me.

Thats why DREs proliferated all over my state for a few decades.
