Default Ridgid RT 5X vs Flir E6

Looking for a starter imager to assist in some home inspections. I have narrowed it down to the Rigid RT 5X or the Flir E6. I know there is lots of discussion on the Flir E6 but I have not seen anything on the Ridgid RT 5x. Anyone have any experience with the Rigid Thermal Imagers or customer service?

Training first, then you can evaluate your needs, yourself.

Ridgid has a sensitivity of 100mK or 120mK (their documentation is inconsistent)

The Flir is a better camera
