Time for another update.
This time I will start with update on Limited Birds!
1. Production and delivery schedule
After all of the materials arrived production started on Monday evening. We have reached the rate of 200 devices a day. We are now improving it to 300 and then 500 devices a day! Assembly line is fuller than ever!
Since Monday evening till today we have produced 400+ devices! This is the fastest we have ever produced them before
UPDATE ON THURDAY
The plan is to arrange shipping for as many ready made devices as possible next week so that they would come before Christmas. The rest of the devices will be still produced next week and the week after if there are any minor delays.
So things are looking solid on this front!
2. 1TB SSD situation!
Things are looking good on this front too. Now that we have changed the supplier we were able to get confirmation of the SSDs in stock. So SSDs are already available and we have fully paid for them so we are waiting for dispatch! Reviews of the new SSD are very positive too
We will let you know once we receive them!
3. Hyper Early Birds
For people who received their Vs or their tracking says they are on the way:
First of all congrats to the ones of you who received your Vs already! We can’t wait to hear your thoughts! I have been waiting for this moment now for so long! But these are happy tears!
As for the people that got their tracking number but it has no update
Your Vs are ready for final shipment but 4px hasn’t given them to courier yet. Tracking numbers will get update soon! We are pushing 4px daily. NONE of this issues happened during our supply chain test with tshirts. This is literally only job of 4px to get goods to warehouse, sort them and ship further but they seem to be really bad at it! 4 px is telling us its the holiday season and that’ causes delay. We think its a lame excuse and try to push them as much as possible.
You can give a bit more pressure to them by sending them an email here: http://en.4px.com/
As for the people that didn’t get their tracking number
Your Vs arrived to the local warehouse but now its taking 4px ages to process the shipment. They told us that there was an explosion in local DHL/ Inventory system crashed. So all kinds of excuses! None of that happened with our tshirt test.
So what will happen to 4px
We will give them last chance with shipments before Chinese New Year and if they still keep having same problems we will switch. We will be having meeting with their management soo to discuss this.
And one for thing!
Few of the Hyper Early birds have received their Vs packed incorrectly. Device box was not in the inflated airbuble pillow. (this is again something that we told 4px numerous times and send instruction of. None of this happened during test shipments.)
We want to apologize to every HEB that has received the device that is not properly packed in the shipping box. If something within your package is missing like Accessories or one of the secret goodies (please check the spoiler at the end after unboxing to see if you’ve got all of those) or anything is broken please don’t hesitate to contact us ASAP at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- V Pouch (different from Sleeves!)
- V Poster

The good news is that we are moving forward! We are learning from this and fire bad partners immediately! Together we will flip corporate pyramid!
We’re also trying out a new thing where we will summarize all news in a bigger update like this one! This means next update will be around SATURDAY, 16th DECEMBER.
If we have breaking news we’ll update you guys ASAP as usual!
