I have the Metcal HCT-900-21 and also the Quick 857
And I prefer the Quick 857 every day over the Metcal.

The only reason from my perspective for the high Metcal price is the brand name.

There are 3 kinds of people in this world, those who can count and those who can not.

I think it's geared towards production use, where the station is just left running for most of the day. In use the reduced power of the Metcal is not significant IMO, but without the auto-sleep and rapid heat-up (which is why the new ones are so high powered) it doesn't really compete with the others.
