Again you and others need to give the Luxe a chance to show it's reliability and customer support. Don't buy it, see what the community says about it, try one at an event or local store before saying it will be a bust, that was really all I was getting at by "give it a chance."
He's not trying to go for the aspect of that. His point is "no one knows what the luxe is capable of, and essentially they are scaring away customers, because when you drop 1,600 on a gun, you usually know what the hell you are buying"
Asking 1600 for a gun, no one knows *anything* about, is like asking us to "invest in a new car company, who no one has ever heard of."
Not many people are stupid enough to take a risky investment.
planet can kick out $1,500+ markers, because we know there is reliability, quality, and they are well established
Same with dye's DM8
same with macdevs Droid
same with bob longs Marq series.
They are all well known, and well respected in the community.
Whereas DLX comes in the middle of the night *poof*, out of thin ****ing air, and Instantly requests we give it the same treatment as the already established companys.
