Breas Z2 Auto Portable Auto-CPAP Machine Package

Breas Z2 Auto Portable Auto-CPAP Machine Package
I'm looking at purchasing a travel machine.  'Ive red a lot of reviews of resmed mini and dream station GO and would probably go with the dream station if it was available, but then I saw this Breas Z2 and it's considerably cheaper.  I'm just not finding much info or reviews of it.  The ones I have read are as positive as the other two options.  I tried a search on here but it came up empty.  Anyone try this machine or know anything about this company? 
Thanks

The dreamstation has been recalled. Many people have moved to a ResMed S10 auto.  They are smaller and many people travel with it. 

That way you have an excellent machine by at home or on the road.

Yeah. Good info. My dream station is almost 7 years old so I’m going to check and see if I can get a new one from my insurance. I like the idea of the ResMed auto one.

The Resmed 10 isn't that large, really, and bear in mind that the Mini doesn't have an SDCard - so no data, if that's important to you.

I recently bought a Z2 for business travel since my DreamStation Go is sidelined and I suspect it won’t be replaced or repaired by Phillips anytime soon. I travel with a rollerboard and a laptop bag- no checked bags. Both the Z2 and Go fit in my laptop bag together with a mask and a slimline hose. The Z2 seems to perform about the same as the Go and runs at about the same noise level with the included muffler (louder than an AS10 but still acceptable).  The Z2 does not have an SD card but I can live without the data when traveling. The Z2 is smaller and lighter than the Go but has a separate power brick. For now, the Z2 is working for me. If you are traveling by car, taking the AS10 along in its dedicated bag is a good option.

I have the Z1 and Z2.  The Z2 is noticeably quieter.  In fact, as quiet as the DS1 which was my main machine.  The Z2 did have some issues, primarily the data would not download to the app.  I sent two machines back and then all sources were "Out of Stock".  I think they went back to work on the firmware.  The third machine works great.

The powershell is useful but has the same old issue...the battery must be disengaged for storage or it discharges.  The old powershell can be used for the new double-sized battery with a firmware upgrade. Unfortunately you have to send it in...took about 4 weeks.  I took the Z2, powershell, large battery, and two older batteries on a canoe/camping trip and the big battery lasted 3 nights.  Note that I sleep ~5 hrs/night.  I like the Z2 quite a bit and wish they could fix the discharge issue.
