as for ampcity. bait and switch on customers is dirty and disgusting.


Agreed.

 

 

Does anyone else have any information if UM Global is taking action against Ampcity and their cable?

They are aware of the situation.  Not sure what can be done about it though.

Dealing with the UM promo over the last six months was simply pain in the ass... and it's still not over (waiting for the damn hoodie and USB lol and no emails are answered since four weeks). But reading now, that the silver cable is worse quality... makes me just sad...

 

Hopefully UM can intervene (topic subscribed!).

I'm guessing the action will be 'you cant prove anything we knew nothing about it'

the only thing that is really bothering me is the fact that my whole cable is actually turning brown, guess ill go for a DIY cable

I think that those who are not happy with the cable should be allowed to return them to ampcity a get either a credit nite for the full value of the cable or trade it in with the silver cable from um.

Why should we get credit for a freebie? I don't much like the cable, but seriously?

Yes, all of that.

I think the right remedy, if remedy is the right word here, is to tell people how bad these cables are, to hit them in the reputation.

Because many of us opted for this deal because of what was included and what we were told we would be getting, I for one was expecting the cable they were selling at the time which is the V1 and not a cable they had made in china from what I understood the cables were made in house and that is not the case and instead I got a cheap quality cable made to cut costs as someone posted earlier.

I sold my cable already so it no longer effects me but I should have received what I had purchased to start with.

I guess it's all a matter of perspective. I got onto the deal back when Steve Guo was heading it up and I just wanted the reduced price on the ciems.The cable, hoodie, and usb drive were just gravy.

By the way, am i the only one who didnt receive any of the promo items beside the cable ?

 

@rroseperry

 

Same here , but the items were offered and thus i expect them as they were offered ... guess UM wouldn't be so pleased if id pay only like 80% of the price inorder to cut some cost on my side.

I didn't receive anything from the promo yet besides the flash drive.  I wonder what's going on?

Has everyone else received a cable already?
