    Pronunciation...

    Whenever I see anyone writing "O2PTIMA", I am automatically pronouncing the 2, and saying to myself "Oh-toop-timma", or is it supposed to have a silent 2? :D

    It's pronounced Optima, just taking a WAG, but the 2 was probably added to ® it.
    But "Oh Tooptima" is just so much more fun ...

    Shirely the p is silent as in ptolomy.

    So it's Oh-too tima

    Optima

    Thumbs up

    The "p" is silent?

    Maybe if the unit was built in Europe...

    I agree with caveseeker7...3 syllables "Opt-i-ma".

    Have fun!
