I bought the unit from ebay. I speak highly of Durst M and its smaller brother M which I also bought years earlier. They are of similar design but the M is exclusively for 35mm. The enlarger is modular in design which is perfect for someone who has no permanent darkroom.

How do I know if the condenser is included? Click to expand The condenser is housed in a plastic box that is inserted above the negative holder. You should receive two condensers.
The smaller one Siriocon 50 is only suitable for 35mm; the larger Siriocon 80 one can do 35 and but will result in longer exposure times for 35mm than the smaller condenser. The smaller condenser is unsuitable for The M is a nice enlarger.
I have a and M The is slightly more plasticcy in places, but they both have similar column mechanisms. You need to make sure the column holds properly and that there are no missing teeth in the rack which is on the column and that the pinion gears are in good condition. They are plastic so can be damaged if misused.
The recommended W bulbs are starting to get tricky to find though. For 35mm I tend to use the Sivoma 35 and Sixma 35 mask pair. The M is modular and you can also swap out the BW head for a colour head which uses diffusers rather than condensers Again there are two sizes and you should ensure you get both unless you only use one format.
