SonoSite M-Turbo Video Review
A look at the popular M-Turbo, its market, and overall use and functionality
At first, I can't say I loved the M-Turbo. However, the more I used the system I found how much I really liked it. The image quality is outstanding, and like its siblings SonoSite MicroMaxx and SonoSite Titan, it's very easy to use. This video review of the M-Turbo covers its strengths and weaknesses. Key strengths are its image quality, durability and ease-of-use. Its simplified user-interface makes it ideal for physicians who use an ultrasound as a tool for a quick diagnosis or to provide guidance for a procedure.
Nearly all the M-Turbo systems that I sell go to a physician. Typically these physicians are in an orthopedic, anesthesia, or pain management field. It is a good upgrade to the SonoSite MicroMaxx, however, the M-Turbo's price can be a bit out-of-reach for smaller offices. In such a case, the MicroMaxx is an excellent solution, as well as other systems such as the Mindray M5. Give me a call to find out which is best for your particular situation 866-347-7633.
At the time of this writing, SonoSite was just purchased by FujiFilm. So who knows what to expect in 2012 and beyond for SonoSite's products. I would expect to see more of the same with developments for these products. I have no concerns about warranties or support for the M-Turbo or other SonoSite ultrasounds.
We sell a lot of these units and there are plenty on the market for parts and service to be available for at least 10 years. Yes, 10 years. We still service systems from the late 1980's! Additionally, these products have been so popular that the market will continue to see more refurbished/used SonoSite ultrasound systems, which also means that prices will drop as more hit the market and newer systems are released.
