    With Miller??? Not even a remote chance of that happening. EVER!!

      It's been a few days since this thread was active and since then I have purchased a newer 200 DX as well.
      The plan is to use both for a while when I am very busy and then when it slows down, sell the older, but still Blue Lightning version and keep the newest version.
      In addition to what KB has already so well informed us with I really don't have much to add here.
      Other than I purchased mine at my LWS for a bit under $2900. It came by UPS to the store....I cannot believe Miller still uses those cavemen. The box was a bit bent up but the machine was mint.
      About the only thing I see different besides access to all functions without turning the machine on and off is, the encoder knob now has a "notchy" feel to it as opposed to the "no friction" feel of the previos models.

        200dx

        I hate when things like this happen.. I waited to buy this machine while the bugs were worked out of it and then this.. I'm just that **** type of person and things like this bother me. I understand things change and technology progresses but thats when new machines are made...

          Just use it for a year and then sell it. Then get one with 3 more years of warranty and you are up to date.
          Seriously, would you want a Dynasty with less than you have now? This machine has progressed a bunch and will hopefully continue.
          I am expecting, now that I have bought my third, Miller to introduce a 250 amp machine on this platform someday....and when they do I will probably be working a way to get one ASAP
          Seriously tho, I don't think this hidden menu access is worth upgrading over. It is simply a nice thing that they figured how to do. It doesn't change the machine's capability one bit.
