everlast4308 30 Posted March 2, 2020 Share Posted March 2, 2020 @Khalid I understand and agree with many of your feelings here. It's frustrating, especially after such a long wait, to have so many things get in the way of usability. I hope it gets better for you. But, if not, FWIW you can probably sell with ease (maybe for profit, see thread on used prices I've been watching), these clackers are in high demand right now. I do still struggle with my own Pro1 (like you), but it's actually really common for quality control to be on par with what you see here. In fact, I'm impressed FxTec has created something this stable and reliable. Here are some issues I've seen from countless other small device startups: no restore info / drivers (FxTec: we do have this) no support channels (FxTec: does have support, albeit small staff) no official community (FxTec: we are here! this is good!) poor build quality (FxTec: good build quality, keys aren't popping off, etc.) randomly bricks (FxTec: does not seem to, AFAIK) Should this be remarkable? No. It should be normal. But we are in a "race-to-market" global economy, where Samsung can put out exploding batteries, Chevy can have zillions of recalls (especially on 1st model-year of a new gen), and video games can be released with ruinous bugs ("we'll patch it later"). Pre-orders, wait-lists, and crowd-funding campaigns only serve to skew this even more. I'm just glad FxTec entered this kind of market, and delivered something actually usable and reliable, more on a "big company" standard of quality than their tiny company size should allow. I like to think they benefit from us tinkering, complaining, fixing, collaborating. Thank you for posting here. All of us here wanna help if we can, and FxTec will keep getting better, through conversations like this! 😊 7 2 Quote Link to post Share on other sites
