FYI Some recent Aircurve VAutos are cased in black

I had raised the spectre of counterfeit VAutos because of the black casing on some online vendors' sales page.

BUT per Gideon over at ApneaBoard, VAutos are now in black. ... #pid415595

Dear Godeon

Here is the name I received from our ResMed rep:

"The AirCurve 11 units are not out yet. We have no eta on when they are going to come out, and I’ve not seen an image of them.
Some of the recent VAutos were made with a black shell recently. This was due to the lack of raw materials (plastics) to make the unit. However, it’s an AirCurve 10 VAuto all the same."

I hope this helps answer your query!

I mentioned this to my sleep doctor who contacted her ResMed rep an the above is the reply
