Well, I'm sure if lubczyk meant what he said, someone else would be happy to take over his pre-order ;-). But seriously though, hype is everywhere. Try living in big cities where constantly being surrounded by advertising, etc. IMHO, falling for hype is really the responsibility of the individual - and even more so in internet forums where it's up to each individual's choice to read or follow a thread. Quite unlike, say, tupperware parties, where there's probably somewhat more peer pressure to buy something that's not needed.
Anyhow, all I can say is that I do carry my M-100 everywhere. And time permitting, do listen to them. Some of you are on the right track that I've not put up my review yet for other (non-technical) reasons.
