Opinion on Minoura Mag 850 D trainer?

There's a guy selling these on Ebay for ~$86 + $22 shipping. Any opinions of this trainer? Did a search on Minoura but didn't see any real reviews. Any other suggestions with an absolute max expense of ~$100?
I've never ridden rollers or a trainer btw. TIA.

I use this one. It works. 7 Level of resistance. It does what it is supposed to do. I have been using it for 2 years.

My pleasure...I noticed the thread just sitting there all lonely ...

I despise riding inside (I really do find watching paint dry more exciting) so I could never use rollers. This way I can mount up keep my cadence and hr stable and not worry in the least about falling asleep and meeting my TV headfirst May not be on the same level of ability or resistance...but thats why I ride trails all summer
