but there should be no more set backs as we've finally had a test unit and they work fine!
I would be careful with such statements.
E.g. angryhelder has everything delivered from the factory. First issue was 2 swapped pins. And now there are issues with some soldered screens.

So even if the test unit is fine, if I were you, I would count some extra time for issues like that.

I'm sure you can appreciate it's a lot to do currently and around our jobs
Sure, I appriciate that, as I said that before. I was just trying to figure out if my personal tier 1 kit order could be one of those that are handmade and shipped before you receive the big factory order.
It sounded like tier 1 was "only" 50 kit orders at all, so I thought mine had a chance to be hand made too and could be in that batch. But if you made and shipped 50 of these (maybe around?) 50 orders, it looks like I just had bad luck with that.

It's a pitty that not a single of the receivers of these 50 kits posted his build over here. Would be cool to see some in the meantime.

So 50 kits have shipped, is this all of tier 1 pre orders?

That is true. If all units are as good as the two sample units we received, we should be good to go. But yeah, fingers crossed there is no more bad luck.

We did 50 by hand, there are some builds showing up, if you haven't received it then it will be from this factory batch.
