While I'd likely never do business with them due to not liking their past with piracy I hope that everyone who ordered from them gets what they paid for and is happy.

Well, that'd put a damper on the Schadenfreude.

Wonder of wonders, it seems like the 13" e-reader is actually shipping! Blow me over with a leaf. I'll be interested to hear some impressions.

I, too, can also take a photo of a bunch of boxes.

Well (seriously), we'll see how it goes....

If it's 8% for Valentine's Day, what will it be for Mother's Day? Or is that when they plan to deliver them?

Seems there have been a few comments as to performance on the units which have been received so far. Seems the internal memory space is something of an issue. Go figure.

Have posted the comments which I noticed on their Indiegoogo page to the Netronix forum:

Just received the box. My first impression was a bummer. It is shaking inside. Some parts are loose or I feared worst it may not even power on. But it powered on and I am charging now. Significant sound of a metal click-clack when i move the tablet even slightly up or down. Lesson learnt never order from these early funded programs. Will have a detailed review in a week..

They're back! Here is a Sneak Peak of the NEW Good e-Reader 6.8

At least they aren't calling it 'ultimate'. And the comments are fun:

Quote:
It looks awesome but please can you focus on fixing the software instability, poor battery life, rattling parts and long delays with the 13.3" reader before developing this? There are hundreds of negative comments all based on these issues on the project page https://www.indiegogo.com/p...
And the reply:

Quote:
All of this is fixed with our new product!
Does that mean Ultimate owners are SOL? Because it at least sounds that way...

A thread was recently started about this device. https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=285702

They have been busy deleting posts on their 13.3" Indiegogo page again. And they no longer seem to link to their Indiegogo page from their website. They also have announced that the 6.8" device will be launched on Kickstarter, not on Indiegogo. All very curious. Backer/Buyer beware.
