It is a nice price but there are some issues with "a dozen around your
The worst is common mode faults. Another concern is NTP "compatible" in a
lightweight (or dedicated system). Some people want the full capabilities
of the reference implemention (e.g. auth or peer). Others want the options
of a full OS (e.g. native firewall and traffic monitoring).
For folks with the resources I would suggest a clique of JF Fury GPSDOs and
a selection of various generation (6,7 and 8) EVK boxes from u-Blox and
something from Trimble. All of which you can plug into any box with a
serial port. I've used PCEngine systems with PCI serial cards.
Or you can just use the pool and be satisfied with ms level performance.
