2) From: Bob Hazen
My experience is similar to Brian's.  My first roaster was an I-Roast and 
divots were a common occurrence.  Then I moved to a Behmor and have yet to 
see divots.  I usually roast to FC, or FC+.  With the I-Roast, things moved 
quickly and I rarely had a gap between 1st and 2nd.  The Behmor is much more 
sedate and I can easily achieve that sought-after gap.

3) From: Michael Wascher
I usually roast to FC or FC+ too. I've seen an occasional divot on a Behmor
roast ... quite a few when a roast got away from me & got further into 2nd
than I wanted.

4) From: John Monteleone
Thank you for the feedback.  I can see myself moving toward a Behmor in the
future.  In the meantime, would you recommend that I try to slow down my
roasting process on the Fresh Roast500.  I typically roast for about 9
minutes (give or take a minute depending on the bean) and I usually try not
to get to second crack.  Is there a down side to trying to extend the roast
of an air popper roaster.

Since "full speed" could result in anything from a 5min to 35min roast
depending a raft of variables not too meaningful...
Regardless I disagree with the statement.
