For Brake Bleeding: Phoenix Systems?

Anyone ever hear of this?
I saw it featured on Gearz and it makes a lot of sense on the face of it.

Phoenix Systems DIY

I have never bled brakes on a car, but I have many times on motorcycles, hydraulic clutches too. Let me tell you, it can be a royal PITA as air seems able to hide EVERYWHERE.

This device looks like it could eliminate most, if not all of the problems.

I sell Speed Bleeders on my motorcycle parts store, and this thing would compete with those, but I can handle a few less sales if this works.

Let me know what you think. Any possible shortcomings? What about the ABS?

Other vehicles:
06 Honda Odyssey
97 Saab 900S (daughter's car actually)
3 1982 Honda Magna motorcycles

If the people who make the decisions are the people who will also bear the consequences of those decisions, perhaps better decisions will result. - John Abrams

To my knowledge the only way to bleed ABS is using STAR computer.
Most of us are satisfied with flushing what is in the rest of the system and potentially do it just more often.
I build pressure bleeder with $2 part I got on junk yard. Works perfectly using spare tire pressure and take minimal storage space. Details in W210 section .
