Whether or not PE is a good

Whether or not PE is a good choice depends on your application.
Bruker Optics equipment is a much better design than PE and the Bruker FTIRs and FTNIRs will last a lot longer so overall your costs are lower with Bruker even if the initial purchase price is less with PE.
The combined FTIR/FTNIR system from PE offers significant loss of signal-to-noise for the NIR compared to dedicated separate FTIR & FTNIR systems made by PE, so this depends on your application--is sensitivity an issue for you? Also a friend of mine works at a company that bought this system before he was hired and he says that when they change between the diamond ATR for mid-IR and the integrating sphere for NIR there are alignment issues so they quit using one of the modules and will buy another instrument when management approves it.
