The opening statement was he is doing this at "NO PROFIT". I didn't say that, I responded to it. I pointed out this company has basically no labor costs and that the parts cost less than $250 or whatever his selling point turns pout to be. . It is common sense that this company produces products for making a profit. However, when a few unbelievable statements get made, someone "should" step up and say hold on there, What's your proof for that statement?
Before I drink cool aid, I want a list of ingredients.
I want to hear what people say who have actually seen and DRANK the cool aid.
I'd like to know how the new cool aid compares to old versions of cool aid.
Maybe the new cool aid is better, maybe it's the same, maybe it tastes new but leaves a bad after taste in your mouth.
When I know nobody has seen or drank the cool aid yet, and I start hearing this cool aid is gonna be great, it is gonna taste better than your old cool aid, and the company is producing it as a "Loss Leader", my Antennas perk up and I say whoa!
I might say let's hear this thing first.
I might say NO PROFIT? Yeah right!
Anybody who has been in this hobby for very long, knows that the guy at the high-fi shop has a new wizz bang product each 18 months or so that is WAY better than the last wizz bang product he sold you 18 months before.
Now, there is a legitimate place for this product. One of the driving factors for this product's development was how bad the Zero was from the factory, what had to be done to it after the factory, and how bad some of the vendors were who sold it.
In my defense here, I would have to say, my education is all in the sciences. I appreciate facts, things that are tangible and proven. All we've seen here are artists renderings, and alpha prototype boards.
