I fixed my "woodpecker" Facet by replacing it with an SU... and I have
never looked back.

A little more expensive but it just seems to 'feel' more solid and
reliable.  And it has proven very reliable over the past six months of
throwing my little yellow beast around under some very extreme
conditions.  Just that extra confidence was worth the few extra dollars
and besides, it *is* an SU so it just seems... RIGHT.

The Facet was some tiny piece of electronics that looked and sounded
flimsy (and annoyed the heck out of me).
