    I would be interested in the reviewer's opinion of the conformal coating and anything he saw related to humidity-proof claims.

    Was it visible in the tear down ? is it actually different than other products ?

    The conformal coating is hardly to find unless you use some devices to scratch the surface of the PCB board. Its overall performance is beyond my expectation.
