Are You A True Fan Of Arecont Cameras?

This may come off as a dig on Arecont. Lord knows there have been plenty here. Arecont has rated very low on surveys and most comments about them are not favorable. However, they are still around, and still priced in what I think are the mid tier and up. If everyone disliked them, it's hard to see how they would still be in business. So someone must really like them, and I don't mean selling them just because they are on an official spec sheet for a large business or agency.

I seriously am curious, is there anyone who uses Arecont cameras and really likes them, or has customers who really like Arecont cameras, and why? And I don't mean "yes, we use their panoramics but only because we have too and we're hoping someone comes along with something similar in the same price or less."
