Honestly, if they were open about the refunds to the December 2017 buyers, I think the situation would’ve been better.
Instead they keep delaying, and never even stating/mentioned it once (since this few months) there are only 1 liner updates and ZERO replies.
Some Eve diehard fanbase or people who already got it, kept defending the delays/supporting Eve’s behavior to not reveal refund/investor/V shipping specifics. That’s what grinds peoples gears.
Glad I gambled to buy a Surface Book 2 from MS when I was abroad (I’m from South East Asia, so yeah importing ain’t cheap), and never considered to buy anything from Eve. A student discount, a direct store/great experience, $2400, and a direct purchase in 1 day.
Seems more worth it for a year of productivity that going cheapskate/taking risk of a 1st gen product. I don’t think the V is a bad computer, since the whole idea is cutting middleman costs (marketing/frontline stores, etc), but from what we see in 1 year (in 2018) is that the V’s build quality/customer support is abyssmal (Yes, that’s sad for ya’ll defective owners)
With Konstatinos back at it again with the Eve delay tactics 101, “a lot of our partners are in holidays” (see ya next 2019 suckas…). When all this December the “frustrated” customers aren’t interested anymore with the V/outdated product, and just want a refund… In a lecture, that would mean Zero Communication/Zero customer feedback.
“They’ve played you like a damn fiddle…!!”
