Who sells premixed drop out media?

Dear Yeasters,

I'd like to hear some consensus.  I find it surprising that several 
companies sell drop-out media, but I wonder about qualities of media, and 
if they follow such generalized recipes as in textbooks like Methods in 
Enzym. 192 (Academic Press) or Methods in Yeast Genetics (CSHL Press). 

The premixed powder sounds like a lot convenient, but the thing is that 
many of us have followed the recipes found in the above books.  What if 
we get any different growth properties?  Should I undergo to test all my 
lab strains for growth curves and etc with commercial, premixed dropout 
powders?  I'd rather do some more weighing.  Well, still I would like to 
hear from someone who have experience with the premixed media!
