Dear Scott,

Just a quick note to let you and the rest of your staff know how much we appreciate having such a dependable product as your VideoRay ROV and how wonderful it is to deal with everyone whenever we need anything.

As you know, in 1982 we were pioneers in the underwater inspection of water storage tanks and we dove in these tanks for our inspections until 2004 when we discontinued diving and purchased an ROV from a VideoRay competitor located on the west coast of the US. Within a few months of using this competitor’s product, due to the continuous problems we had keeping this ROV operational, we realized that we must purchase a second ROV from this company if we wished to continue in the tank inspection business. Even with us owning 2 of these units, we constantly had problems and it turned out that each unit would only operate about 8 hours without failing. I had to keep a generous supply of spare parts and I became an expert on disassembling and repairing their ROVs. Turn around time for a repair of their ROV would be at least several weeks if not months and many times their repairs did not even work.

We finally had enough and purchased your ROV in 2009. What a difference! We started with a Pro 3 and now have a single Pro 4. Unlike the competitor’s ROVs, we have had absolutely no need for 2 units so far. Not only have we had only a very few problems, but your staff does everything possible to get our ROV operational as quickly as possible and stands behind your product unconditionally. Your repairs are always extremely fast with no hassles or questions.

Please feel free to use our name, and do not hesitate to have prospects or potential clients contact us about your company, your products, and your staff.
