The sale has been very unpredictable in past several years, reason unknown.

Years ago it was in April, May. Last year it was around August.

I think Global Warming is having an effect on LOR and their sales.

Not slamming LOR. Just stating an unpredictable sale history, kinda like the weather.

It is fast!

First 100 orders took 44 seconds

Next 100 took 19 seconds (people were warming up)

Next 100 took 24 seconds ( peak was over )...

 

"There were a total of 905 orders with 700 of them within the first 5 minutes. A total of 2470 items were sold."

I think that last year, LOR had some major supplier and quality control issues and put all the manpower into that part of the company.

 

When the sale DID occur, it was over quickly and LOR sold a LOT of product in the first five minutes. Gotta have a quick mouse.

 

 

Just for interest's sake, here's Dan Baldwin's Christmas light display from 2005: http://www.lightorama.com/Videos/DB-20051218.wmv

Now the question,

Which sale are we all talkin about?

The spring limited sale ot the summer longer sale? :blink:

The sale is like mirage. It's teased on LOR's homepage the week of, then an email goes out hours before it launches. It's impossible to prepare for, unfortunately.

I have received my email.  It's on.    :D

This is the you snooze you loose sale. Did you have to let the cat out of the hat? Look now we have that many more people who you are going to have to compete against to get one of those controllers at the sale.

 

Good luck all, cause them controllers are all mine. [evil laugh]..
