Holter ECG?

My fantasy buy is a Holter ECG machine? Please talk me out of it.

$1000 on eBay. Direct from China.

12 Channel Holter (TLC4000) ECG Monitoring System

I have to wear a holter every year for the FAA just before my class I physical. I had surgery about 8 years ago to correct an arrhythmia. I'm telling you... it is a pain in the a$s. You don't want to do it. I try to make my last hours with it a bike ride, just to throw a curve at the techs... They never complained and seemed to enjoy the change.

Why? Because I'm bored with my heart rate thing monitor. Actually the Oximeter with large screen output and the ambulatory Blood Pressure devices are also tempting me, and are much cheaper. I also like the fact that the FDA requires me to have a note from a doctor(which I don't).

What I don't like is sending $1000 to China and getting something I have no idea how to use or evaluate. But I assume if they are user friendly enough ...

I am also curious about what my ECG looks like under various conditions.

I work in the medical device industry. Be careful what you order online from China. The FDA requires a prescription for devices for a reason.
