I love the tilt/recline on my spine but as far as travel I am not happy. Most of the time the chair is parked in front of the tv or reading a book....anyone else have same problems??

    I have a Quantum 6000z with Q logic. I like it. Haven't had any problem so far. The Qlogic is extra. It's a $1800 option. I don't know about other power chair but this one is fast. It maxes out at 6.3 mph.

    I've had a 600 with tilt for about 4 1/2 years now. I chose it over the 6000 due to price and its smaller footprint. I use it 95% inside so the rougher ride outside is not a problem. It's mostly paved where I go anyway. This is definitely not a chair for going off road. I do have the Q-Logic controller and am happy with it. I have had a few minor problems, but my supplier is very good and dealt with them quickly. I tried it out before buying, so I knew what I was getting.

    If you want info on Q-Logic problems, you might try posting on WheelchairJunkie.com. It's run by a Pride employee. http://www.wheelchairjunkie.com/

    6 wheel chairs are USELESS OUTDOORS on anything other than streets and sidewalks.

    MES should be forced to pay for chairs that will actually function outdoors in a realistic manner. All of his videos are bullshit.

    Everything he has posted over at WC junkie is misleading.

    This Q600 is a $20,000 flat out rip-off.

    If I lived on a sidewalk it would be a fantastic chair. But get near anything unpaved and this POS will get stuck and leave you stranded.

    I need a chair built for real life. The Q600 - Q6000 aint it.

    I agree with you^^^

    I got the q6000 because I live out in the woods and I needed a outdoor chair. The q6000 is not a outdoor chair.

    I have gotten stuck on flat carpet. It won't even climb the maybe 3/8” to get on my vans ramp, it just spins.

    Needing a programer to change everything and not being able to call tech support. The guys at the shop don't know how to do anything.

    I had a 600 as a lowner chair for 6 months and it was pretty good. It was a smaller chair and the computer was way simpler.

    I have a bill somewhere that breaks down why they charged $30,000 for it.

    I owned a Quantum Q6000. It was an absolute nightmare electronically. Ended up with several warranty replacements of the whole base because of failures. It was awful outside and I always thought an ugly chair. I couldn't wait to get a different chair. i got a Permobile 350 in December. So much better chair in every respect. Although Pride for the most part provided good service, I will never go back to them because of their unreliability. I was stranded so many times in the Q6000. I didn't abuse my chair either. My provider always said my chair was more well cared for then almost all his other clients.
