Looking for serial servo controller

I hope this is the right forum category.

I am looking to operate 12~ servos with a serial connection and i'm looking for a serial board that will either be compatable with the picaxe X1's or the arduino 2009. Sparkfun only seems to have an 8 servo controller and i've been out of the robotics area for a while and don't know where to look.

I was looking at the parallax 16 servo controller

(http://www.parallax.com/Store/Accessories/MotorServoControllers/tabid/160/CategoryID/35/List/0/Level/a/ProductID/595/Default.aspx?SortField=ProductName%2cProductName)

which is $40 but after seeing the ssc which is also the same price it may be hard chosing between the two.The ssc looks interesting but i wish it had more inputs. Has anyone ever had any experience with the parallax one? I may end up trying that so i can keep the arduino seperate and free for any other attachments i might want to add later. thanks for the advice, and i appreciate all input

The arduino 2k9 can handle 12 servos by itself (with arduino-017's servo library)

Lynxmotion still has their SSC-32 for about $40
