Would you bet your reputation on a 5 year old company that is relatively small? Even if they have built a better mouse trap? Worst case, you buy and they go out of business. Either from lack of customers or (if it really is that much better) from competition from the big players. Best case, they get bought out by someone with deep pockets. If Movidis really believes in their product they should give it away to a few high-profile customers and invite reviews.
