Wasn't the original company going down the pans in 2006? If Ribquest has been taken over by new owners I can't see how you could compare a pre 2007 RIBquest with a new one.

IMHO I think the new owners might have considered a new name for the company so that confusions like this might not arise.

CLJ,
Slightly off topic, what sort of performance do you get with that setup?
