Deltec and/or H&S skimmers

I have been doing some reading about these skimmers and am reading some amazing things.....

Anyone have experience with them?

Are they worth the monster cost?

TIA

..and I thought my Euro-Reef skimmer was expensive until I saw that the most inexpensive Deltec at the LFS is $600. Yikes!

yeah, exactly, they're pricey alright. I have an ASM now and am really not unpleased with it. But from what I have read, the deltecs in particular blow the ASM away. Supposedly due to the "recirculating" aspect of it the dwell time is significantly increased and thus more efficient.
