Overall, not a bad choice.

Conduct chemistry reactions under microwave irradiation conditions

We bought this Anton-Parr unit when our BioTage Initiator died more than two years ago. The price was significantly cheaper than a replacement BioTage unit with similar specs. The unit is built like a tank and is much bigger than the BioTage unit it replaced. We had to cut away a few monkey bars and remove the "explosion cup" at the back that was meant to catch glass shards in the unlikely event of a run-away reaction, in order to fit it into the fume hood---even so, the front barely cleared the sash, instead of leaving a couple of inches as per the safety rules. The instrument functions well and handles the chemistry fine. The (low res) camera and LED backlight are nice upgrades compared to the BioTage unit. Even though the unit is marketed in North America and only requires 1000W power input, it runs on 208V---an inheritance from its European root. Make sure you have access to a qualified electrician to install the high voltage socket. Their available field service engineers seemed to be more limited, and arranging an on-site PM turned out to be slower than expected.
