I didn't realize there was a Renault in N.A., but I forgot about French Canada. There is no Renault in the US, and their efforts here were politely characterized as ... not quality oriented. :)

I am aware that they have improved.

Renault

Hi Perrone:
Renault in France and the rest of Europe is a quality car. Renault totally blew it in North America, but they also went up against the once powerful big three back in the day, so that had a lot to do with it. Did you know that many GM cars were built in Ste.Therese, Quebec, North of Montreal ( The Corvette for years)and in Oshawa, Ontario (Most GM Vans and a pickup) ? I've noticed US companies really try hard to hide these kind of facts when their products are not made in the US from other Americans.

I went into our new HUGE Wal-Mart store locally here in Vaudreuil. Quebec, and there was freakin *Nothing* in that store which was made anywhere in North America ! Man ! This seems unatural to me. When I was a kid, most stuff you bought in a hardware or department store was made in the US or Canada- Now nothing is ! At least Convergent Design makes all their products locally and employs local people - that's a good thing, and probably one more reason why their XDR and Nano have such a high build quality. Sorry - I digress.

Test Results for Ultra Pricey Software MXF Unwrapper Re-Wrapper

Hi friends:
I tested out the Ultra Expensive software and it works perfectly, but it isn't a realistic solution due to the price tag. You could purchase a nice Convergent Design Nano Flash recorder for the price of this utility.

Conclusion: Not worth it to me. Too expensive for what it does.
