    Just as an FYI - we're coming up on the last day to get a 535 in the first production run, before we have to close the order window. Orders that come in afterwards we expect will ship in June (rather than the April delivery of the current batch).

    Thanks so much for all your continued interest.

    @Hands - thank you for the review, we're so pleased you liked it.

    New production boards are in. Even the innards are pretty. ;)

    Moving right along, on schedule. Might have some big news for those that missed out on the intro pricing and first production run - to share in the next week or two as well. Stay tuned!

    18 hours remaining! Once the Massdrop ends, we will be closing the window for this production run, so get your order in now (also last shot at this kind of discount).

    Thanks to those of you who have ordered!

    Apologies for the radio silence on updates. I know we've spoken to a few buyers with concerns, and thought it was worth sharing with the community.

    We've had some frustrating issues with two of our key vendors, which finally seem to be resolved. I don't have a solid ETA on shipping, but at least everything is moving forward again. On the plus side, some compromises we were afraid we'd have to make on the chassis and switches are no longer a concern, but at the sacrifice of speed of production.

    Our apologies for the delays. We're getting your 535's out to you just as soon as we can.

    Thank you,
    Liam (and Steve)

    Chassis are built, passed QC, and off to powder coating and silk-screening. Finally getting down to where we will be able to start putting them together for shipping.

    Our updated expected ship date is 7.31 - and thank you again! I'll do my best to keep you all updated on any possible changes.
