Power Systems Powerbox vs ECU remap

Does anyone know much about/have the Powerbox? I've been considering going with the Active Auto ECU remap, which appears to be around the same price. The Powerbox is claiming more gain over other ECU's around the same price, such as AA. The main reason I'm considering this is due to not having to be without my car for about a week.Thoughts?

Not sure if it works like it says it does but the good part about this is with an ECU flash like AA's if you take your car in for service and they update your ECU software ( can happen often) your tune is erased. I think active gives you 1 or 2 additional reprograms for free but thats also more time that your car is down. Wonder if any one has tried this

Im looking for something similar, for I live outside the US and having a reflash would keep my car out for about a month. However, I haven't heard of Powerbox before, reputation and R&D are huge factors in my decision to purchase mods. So as of the moment, it would be unlikely for me to get something like this unless it gets really good reviews
