These are pertinent points, and I agree with them all.

In my experience the PMC-10 is much harder to find than the 
Mitigator, though both are as scarce as chicken's lips.  I've bought 
two Mitigators (one of which needed a new battery) and one PMC-10 
(which was missing one of the plastic end caps and had one broken 
switch). This is probably typical. You are more likely to find a 
Mitigator in good condition than a PMC-10, due to the robust 
construction of the former and the frailty of the latter.
