I agree with your final choice, but I do not like the use of "all," unless
that was emphasized for some marketing purpose, but I do like that it breaks
up the sentence in two short phrases. Brochure sentences should be rather
brief, like your two phrases, since people are not reading for content.
They want the gist of what it being sold. Does the sentence really end in
ellipses? I don't like that.
