    I just messaged showz for a refund as well. If it ever sees the light of day again in real numbers I will order it in a heartbeat.

    Losing interest by the day. Might put in a refund request too. It's a shame I was so up for this before

    I still think they will move forward with production, I can’t believe hey will have done all this work only to let it die after a quarter push out from the production line.

    Honestly, I understand the waning interest. I would probably right with you guys. But I’ve cancelled stuff before only to have it be released and then skyrocket in price with the resurgence in interest.

    The more I read the thread, the more lucky I feel to have received one... very strange with regard to how they are handling the release... most of the reviewers still haven't even received one yet either.

    You and me both! I didn’t realize that Bens KO was really the only high viewer count English channel that had gotten a sample for review.

    Either that, or there are a lot out there in the hands of people who have no intention on doing a review. Honestly that, and with the negative connotation even these modified models are having at the moment I can understand why some wouldn’t.

    I think that's the problem, only a few select panhandlers received review units, the other regular fans purchased the product, equating to people who work, and often work too much to do reviews. I could do a review but I'm going to play some pc games and go to sleep...after 2 15 hour shifts and 5 hours a night of sleep...
    who knows in the future, lol...but I did also order an arcade machine to play games with when I don't want to play pc games. And I game/internet surf on cellphone wifi...SUCKS!

    Well, that's good news for those who still have their pre-order. I got my refund today which means I can replace the 2 worn tires on my car now. Sigh...
