I have run the Z4000 through its paces.  I feel it is a fine
transformer.  It packs plenty of power.  Trains fly around the track.  I
have run older as well as newer engines; (all generations of MTH, Lionel
pre and post war, Williams and Weaver) all run fine.  

Protosounds are a snap to access with its easy user interface.

I had one slight problem/misunderstanding with it.  MTH was quick to
address my problem.  The told me what to do and it fixed it.  I can not
see where one could buy a more powerful or user friendly transformer.  I
recommend the Z4000 highly.

I agree wholeheartedly. The Z4000 is an awesome transformer. I had
been worried about the plastic casing until I received the unit...it
has a high quality heavy duty feel to it. It works flawlessly and has
killer power. The only two complaints I have are : 1)  they should
have used meters for voltage and amp readouts and 2) they should have
used  heavier switches. My experience with Lionels cheap switches that
tend to stick or fail completely worries me.  With most outlets
dropping MTH and the unit being "sealed" I guess we'll ......ehhh see.
