Sales??

Recommended Posts

Big Al wrote:

My real question is do we have any idea when controllers partially assembled or fully assembled will be available. I need to decide if I should plan on using LOR this year or make other plans. Time is running short.

The sales so far have been useless to me because with out the controller the other items would be useless.

Please note I am not taking shots at Dan or anyone else I just need information so I can get moving for this Christmas.


I did get a PM from Dan today about the non assembled kits.

We sold all the solder kits and have PCBs on order but they will not be here for another week or so.

The CTB16PCs will start to be sold at the end of this week. There will be a backlog as soon as we put the BUY button up but will get them out as quickly as we can.

Sorry about this, this is not he way we want to do business.


I am not sure if there will be a sale price on them in as much as they are coming in limited quantity's at this point.

Sale price; I mean really? At this point I would be willing to pay almost anything for the one controller I need.

That is apparently the logic this guy has:

I heard somewhere that PC controllers were going to be placed on the commodity exchange like West Texas Crude and Pork Bellies.

I suppose if you are not doing a Halloween show and are willing to risk not getting new controllers in time for Christmas. Selling your controllers to the "needy" is a way save money on upgrading all your controllers to rev 3.

Ok, how about this. If I were to purchase a kit to be safe and make sure I have one for Christmas, and they happen to go on sale, will there be some kind of credit to our accounts? just asking, because I know that in the past there has always been a sale, there was news that there would be this year, but things happened. Just didnt know if there are those of us who want to cover butt because we dont know if we can rely on delivery and dates would lose out on potential savings. IF they happened to go on sale.

Didn't I remember something regarding free shipping for the new controllers during Dan's talk in Tennessee to all of us at the Pizza restaurant?

I think if you look back at all the info from Dan both here (the Forum) and on the PDU page, I think you will find that the Free Shipping was only in effect on "SALE" items. No place in the PDU posts is there any reference to Free Shipping on controllers, since the controllers sold today are not on sale. I am happy that I got to order the controllers I needed, regardless of the shipping cost.

I ordered controllers and one start-up package, as I was just using the demo version of the software, today. I see on Dan's post that new software will be coming out next week. Am I going to have to pay for the new software, or will the old version update to the new?

Dan has stated in the past that S3 would be a free upgrade to those who have purchased within the last year. So, you should be eligible for the free upgrade.

For those of you that ordered the G3 boards this morning, did you miss this little gem??

Please be advised that it may be many weeks before we can deliver. (orders placed early will be delivered fairly quickly)

:shock:

And from the Fully Assembled page:

Comes as pictured above. Controller card with Heavy duty heatsinks is pre-installed in the enclosure. You assemble the strain relief, clamp the wires in place, screw the strain relief to the enclosure and plug the wires into the card. In an hour (actual time may vary) you will have a 30 amp, 16 channel light controller.

Software is not included. The Generic Starter Package includes the adapter cables and software required to use this controller.

Availability: This year we have experienced serious supplier delays. However, we are now receiving a steady supply of the CTB16PC-GEN3 controller cards that are used to build the this controller. We know that the demand from our customers will outstrip our ability to provide immediate delivery of this product.

Please be advised that it may be many weeks before we can deliver. (orders placed early will be delivered fairly quickly)

No, I saw it too. My order was confirmed by LOR at 6:03 AM. I hope that puts me in the first 1,000 or so controllers sold. LOL

I am usually the glass half empty kind of guy, but feel pretty good with the news provided by Dan, and am confident that I will have what I need by November.

That is why I got up at 4:50am (west coast time) so I could be at my computer and ready to order by 5:00. I wanted to make sure my order would be shipped from the stock he has on hand now. I'm getting tired worrying about whether I would get any PC boards this year or not. Time to put this to bed and move on. Now I can concentrate on finishing the sequencing and getting other things ready.

At any rate... thanks Dan for getting the product out.

I wanted to set something simple up for Halloween. But if it is weeks and Christmas is around the corner, I guess I will can it until the new year... Maybe tax time...

If you need to be up and running, it appears that the soldering required kits are in stock. The ones for $180. From what I've read, it is easy to do, just takes some time. Plus they even stand behind your soldering work (if you mess up you're not out of luck) I am planning on ordering one of these, even though I can't solder well.

Alan, if you ordered it, you will still get it before Thanksgiving when most people turn on their lights.. Just keep plugging away with the Demo version (or Basic if you already bought S2) until it shows up.. You can go with the controller when it gets there, use some shared sequences and still be the BMOC (Big Man On Campus) (or BMOYS.. Big Man On Your Street), even with one controller.. really..

Secondly, and for all newly-minted LOR addicts, please put your city/state in your profile, that way, you/we might be able to find someone CLOSE BY that can 1) either loan you a controller, or 2) teach you to solder if you dont know how.
